The federal government has said it’ll review the proposed January 18 resumption date for schools, as the country battles the second wave of COVID-19.
The Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, stated this while speaking at the briefing of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on Monday.
Adamu noted the earlier resumption date of January 18 wasn’t definite.
“Today at the PTF meeting, we looked at the rising figures and decided that probably we should take another look at the date.
“The January 18 resumption date is not sacrosanct as it is subject to constant review in view of prevailing epidemiological circumstances. We are reviewing it.”
“In view of the rising cases, today we’ve considered it at the meeting of the PTF.
“Tomorrow, the ministry goes to take it up. So, presumably, it’s getting to be reviewed,” Adamu said.
