Actress Annie Idibia questions school resumption amid second wave of COVID-19
Nollywood actress, Annie Idibia has questioned the decision by the Federal Government of Nigeria to approve the resumption of schools across the country amid the outbreak of the second wave of COVID-19 pandemic.
The thespian spilled her guts on Instagram on Monday night while reacting to singer, Seun Kuti’s Instagram post in which he kicked against the decision to reopen schools amid the increasing spread of the virus.
Annie Idibia who faulted the decision also wondered if parents can trust the schools enough to know where the teachers, assistants, cleaners, school chef, security, and even the students, have been for the last two weeks.
“My question is simply about school reopening. Do the kids of those who decided for schools to resume attend the schools asked to resume?” Seun Kuti asked on his official Instagram page.
In her reply to Sen Kuti’s poser, Annie Idibia said; “Still very disturbing ooo. Honestly, I am not sure I want my kids to go back to school “NOW” with this 2nd wave of COVID!! It’s really out there! I am so SCARED!! How many parents let their kids off to school today?
“Please, tell me how u did it? And do you TRUST the schools enough to know where the teachers, assistants, cleaners, school chef, security, even the students, where they have been for the last 2weeks? Have they encountered anyone with COVID? Knowing or unknowingly??”
“Has every single staff taken the COVID test before resuming to take care of our kids? Personally, I don’t trust n can’t account for the above. Won’t these kids hug each other ?? After missing their friends from d long break?”
“I know people close who caught COVID n still healing from it! That even watched people drop in isolation centres. Please let be wise with the decision we make in the lives of our kids,” she noted.
