Schools might not resume on January 18, 2021 as earlier stated in December by the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on Covid-19.
This was made known by the minister of Education, Adamu Adamu in a briefing on Monday, January 11, 2020.
In his statement, he said, “It (January 18th date of resumption) is not sacrosanct. When we decided on that date, it was just a target towards what we were working on”.
He also said that the ministry is going to review the resumption date, January 18th tomorrow.
It should be noted that the current vacillation on school resumption is because of the recent rise in COVID-19 cases in the country. Nigeria recently crossed the 100,000 cases mark, on Sunday, January 10, 2020.
