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.

“After extensive consultations with relevant stakeholders, including State Governors, Commissioners of Education, Proprietors and heads of institutions, staff unions and students, the consensus of opinion is that the resumption date of Jan. 18, 2021  should remain.

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