The Presidency has denied reports that President Goodluck Jonathan's children are in school despite Federal Government's directive that schools remain closed during of the ongoing voters' registration.

In a statement signed by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Ima Niboro, the presidency urged the public to disregard publications stating the otherwise.

According to the statement, 'This is to correct reports in the media that President Goodluck Jonathan's children are currently attending school in disregard of the request by the Federal Ministry of Education and INEC that primary and secondary schools in the country should remain closed.

'The truth is that the president's children have not resumed school this year in compliance with the Federal Ministry of Education's directive. This fact can be easily verified. 'President Jonathan is fully conscious of his duty and obligation to give exemplary leadership to the nation and he will always live up to this great responsibility,' the statement concluded.
