Students in Junior Secondary School 3 in the state have been ordered to resume classes in preparation for their Basic Education Certificate Examinations, according to the state government (BECE).
The BECE will begin in schools across the state on August 23.
Dr. Shehu Muhammad, the Commissioner for Education, issued the directive yesterday in a statement in Kaduna.
Last month, Governor Nasir El-Rufai ordered the closure of schools due to the state’s growing insecurity.
