“On the number of students who may have contracted the COVID-19, we have confirmed that all of them are back in class. All of them have tested negative and we don’t have any further cases. There were four in Gombe, one in Kwara, 20 in Bayelsa and so on.

“This morning during an inspection of examination classes, I confirmed from the WAEC officials that they have been discharged and are back in classes.
