This was the position of the forum which was made public by the forum Chairman and Ebonyi Governor, Dave Umahi on the issue of reopening of schools at a media briefing on Sunday.
He said there were fears for kindergarten and primary school pupils who do not understand what is social distancing.
“How many of our schools have running water and how many sanitisers have been provided for them?” He asked.
Umahi noted that it is the rainy season and most schools are bushy due to abandonment since the coronavirus outbreak.
“We will then review our position and tell our people the safest time to re-open schools with our health workers to enforce the NCDC protocols,” Umahi added.
