As the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 has continued to increase daily in Nigeria, the Federal Government is considering shifting the January 18th resumption date, Insidenaija reports. In December, the presidential task force on COVID-19 had asked schools in the country to remain closed until January 18, 2021. But at a briefing on Monday, Adamu Adamu, minister of education, said there are concerns about the scheduled date. “It (January 18th date of school reopening) is not sacrosanct. When we decided on that date it was just a target towards what we were working on,” he said. “Of course, we are keeping it in view and looking at what is happening in the society and then it is supposed to be subject to constant review. Even today at the PTF meeting we looked at the rising figures and thought about if we should probably take another look at it. “On January 18th resumption, we are reviewing it, we are going to review it… tomorrow the Ministry is going to take it up.” Nigeria crossed the 100,000 mark of COVID-19 cases on Sunday.
