Contrary to reports earlier in the week by the minister of Education that says the federal government of Nigeria may shift the resumption of school that was scheduled to be on the 18th of January due to the raise of Covid-19 in the country, the coordinator of Presidential Task Force on Covid-19 has stated that school resumption still remain January 18.
The National Coordinator of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID19, Sani Aliyu, says the date for school resumption remains January 18 and will only change after a review by the Federal government.
However, in an interview with TVC on January 12, Aliyu said the date for resumption has not 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.
So, for the moment, it is still 18th January until the ministry of education comes back either with an alternative date or reconfirm that.”he said
