The Federal Ministry of Education on Thursday said it has aligned with the January 18, 2021 date for schools’ resumption nationwide.

In announcing that schools can resume academic activities on Monday, January 18, 2021, the Ministry, in a statement signed by Mr Ben Goong, the Director of  Press , said that the go-ahead was given after undertaking a comprehensive appraisal of the school resumption proposal.

workers in all schools, temperature checks and hand washing facilities at strategic locations in all schools.
