School resumption date remains Jan 18, says Nigerian presidential task force

Sani Aliyu, national coordinator of the presidential task force (PTF) on COVID-19, says the date for school resumption remains January 18.

Speaking during a television programme on Tuesday, Aliyu said the date has not been changed pending further directives.

On Monday, Adamu Adamu, minister of education, had said the federal government is considering shifting the January 18 resumption date over rising COVID-19 cases.

He said there were concerns about the scheduled date, adding that the federal government might review it.

But Aliyu said no decision had been taken on the date, saying January 18, 2021 remains intact.

“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,” Aliyu said.

“So, for the moment, it is still 18th January until the ministry of education comes back either with an alternative date or reconfirm that.”
