The federal government has declared that it would review the January 18 earlier date fixed for resumption of schools across the country.
Punch reports that the government on Monday, January 11, attributed the decision to the second wave of COVID-19 currently ravaging the country.
It was gathered that the minister of education, Adamu Adamu, disclosed this while answering questions during a press briefing by the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 in Abuja.
The minister said:
“On the January 18 resumption date, we are reviewing it. We are going to review it. At the PTF meeting today, we considered it, and tomorrow, the ministry is going to take it up.”
