In a visit to New layout Primary School, Abakaliki, few pupils were seen in the classroom, while others were sighted busy playing football outside the school.

Also, in Okpaugwu Urban School 1 and 2, most of the teachers were seen in their offices, while few students were seen in the classrooms,  most of the classroom were observed to be empty.

Speaking with one of head teachers, Mrs Igwebe Loretta, she  said that the turnout of pupils in the morning was encouraging, but they were still expecting others to also resume for academic activities.

It was also observed that some of the school structures are dilapidated, while the entire school environment was almost covered with grasses.
