Schools in Nigeria to resume january 18 2021; [Video]
The Federal Government has given the nod for schools to resume on January 18 after reaching consensus with Governors, Commissioners and other stakeholders.
The consensus was reached at a meeting between the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu and Commissioners of Education in Abuja.
Despite the rise in covid 19 cases in Nigeria, a counter action is about to take place.
A video which started making rounds in the internet now has stated that schools should resume on the 18th of January 2021 as the initial plan states.
This is in accordance to the fact that there has been deliberations on the resumption time or date for schools which was placed under dispute a few days ago.
The Permanent Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Education, Arc. Sonny Echono, who confirmed this to THE NATION, said: “We have had extensive discussions with state governors, proprietors of schools, labour /staff unions and students’ representatives. And the consensus is that we should reopen all schools.
Reacting to this, a new video came online thoroughly through AIT directing that schools will still resume on the 18th of January as earlier stated.
To the students out there, you are advised to get prepared and ready to go back to school and if you are in school already, you are advised to stay back and prepare to resume academic activities.
“But the reopening of schools will be in compliance with COVID-19 protocols, especially strict adherence to non-pharmaceutical procedures.”
