The Federal Government of Nigeria has revealed that it will review the date it  fixed for the re-opening of schools across the country.

Making this disclosure at the briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 in Abuja on Monday, the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu said the spike in COVID-19 cases has become an issue that worries the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration.

“On the January 18 resumption date for schools, we are reviewing it. We are going to review it.

“At the PTF meeting today, we considered it, and tomorrow (Tuesday), the ministry is going to take it up,” Adamu said.

Recall that the Federal government had okayed January 18 for the re-opening of all schools in the country.

However, different states asked schools to resume on the 18th of January 2021.

The recent upsurge in COVID--19 cases might be forcing the Federal government to reverse its decision on re-opening schools across the country.

AllNews recalls that Reno Omokri an erstwhile aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan earlier today warned that the Federal government's move to re-open schools was an invitation to mass COVID-19 deaths.

His warning came after the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) on Sunday night announced that the COVID-19 cases in Nigeria had surpassed 100,000.
