FG okays full reopening of schools

Viewing 0 reply threads
    • The Federal Government, through the PFT have announced that state governments and school administrators should start making preparations for the full reopening of schools in the country.

      Speaking on Thursday, the National Coordinator of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, Dr Sani Aliyu, during a briefing at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja, said the PTF recommends phased return of students.

      Aliyu said, “For educational institutions which include daycare, primary, secondary and tertiary institutions. Educational institutions should begin the process of working towards potentially reopening within this phase.

      “However, we strongly recommend that states conduct risk assessment to ensure all schools are at a level of compliance and create a monitoring mechanism to assess, create, and monitor this level of preparedness.

      “Meanwhile, all daycares and educational institutions are to remain closed to in-classes until this level of risk is assessed. And if there will be opening of schools, it must be staged and preferably carried out in phases to ensure that this does not pose a risk to the general public and in particular to vulnerable groups that might end up getting infected by students going back home.”

      What the above implies is that any state who have accessed the risk of reopening schools and can ensure the safety of the students, can now open their schools.

      For some states, this is nothing new as some states in the country have already announced the dates for reopening of their schools.

      But for some other states including federal tertiary institutions, who prior this PTF notice were reluctant to reopen their schools, will now intensify and hopefully most schools will reopen this month.
