For the avoidance of doubts, schools have not resumed - Nigeria

“For the avoidance of doubts, schools have not resumed” the Nigerian government have declared.

Secretary to the Government of the Federation and Chairman of the PTF, Mr Boss Mustapha made this clear.

“Only critical examination classes will be allowed to resume for those who need revision before examinations. As we have informed you, the Federal Ministry of education will consult further with stakeholders before issuing guidelines that will lead to full resumption.

“We appeal to Nigerians to continue to show understanding and to ensure that their wards take full advantage of electronic platforms provided for learning”, he said.

Boss Mustapha also warned during a press briefing on Thursday that the Government are bound to make fresh changes as the need arises.

He acknowledged that there has been an increase in the total number of confirmed cases in the country.

“One significant observation the PTF wishes to make is that the new rise in cases is to be expected as nations start to ease restrictions.

“We shall, however, proceed with caution and we shall not hesitate to change course when the need arises. What this means is that Nigerians should never mistake the relaxation by the government as a signal that the COVID-19 battle had been concluded,” he warned.
