Speaking in a television programme on Tuesday night, the PTF National Coordinator, Dr. Sani Aliyu, said the date remains 18th January until the Federal Ministry of Education determines otherwise.

This clarification followed the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu’s remark on Monday, which had indicated that the January 18 date for resumption of schools in the country would be reviewed because of the rising cases of COVID-19 In the country.

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