Covid-19: Schools to still resume January 18, PTF says
The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, on Tuesday, said schools in the country will resume on January 18 except otherwise stated by the Ministry of Education.
PTF National Coordinator, Dr Sani Aliyu, made this known while featuring on a television programme monitored by TheNigerian.
Recall that Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, had on Monday, said the Federal Government would review the January 18 earlier date fixed for resumption of schools across Nigeria.
However, in reaction, the PTF coordinator said the minister did not say the date has been changed.
“As regards schools, I just want to make a clarification, what the minister said yesterday was that they were going to review, he didn’t say that they were going to change the date. He said they will review the situation and let the nation know,” he said.
“So, for the moment, it is still 18th January until the ministry of education comes back either with an alternative date or reconfirm that.”
