COVID-19: FG gives condition for review of Jan 18 schools resumption
Adamu Adamu

The Federal Ministry of Education has said that the January 18, 2021 date for schools resumption may be changed depending the on the nation’s COVID-19 indicators.

The Minister of Education, Mr. Adamu Adamu, gave the hint on Monday in Abuja, at the joint national briefing of the Presidential Task Force, PTF, on COVID-19.

The PTF in December 2020, ordered schools in the country to remain closed until January 18, 2021.

Adamu said, “When we decided on that date, it was just a target toward what we are working on.

“Of course, we are keeping it in view and looking at what is happening in the society and then it is supposed to be subject to constant review.

“Even today at the PTF meeting, we looked at the rising figures and thought we should probably take another look at it. On the January 18, 2021 date for schools  resumption, we are reviewing it,” he said.

The minister added that the issue was considered at the PTF meeting held on Monday and the  ministry would take it up on Tuesday.
