January 18 nationwide resumption date for schools stands, says Federal Ministry of Education

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.

“Parents and respective institutions must ensure full compliance with COVID-19 protocols including compulsory wearing of facemasks by all students, teachers and
workers in all schools, temperature checks and hand washing facilities at strategic locations in all schools.

“Also, they must ensure constant supply of water,  hand sanitisers and enforcement of maintenance of social distancing and suspension of large gatherings such as assembly and visiting days.
