The PUNCH had earlier reported that the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, on Monday, said the Federal Government would review the January 18 earlier date fixed for resumption of schools across Nigeria .

The minister, who spoke at a PTF briefing in Abuja, attributed the decision to the second wave of COVID – 19 currently ravaging the country
Speaking further on the issue on Tuesday, the PTF coordinator said the minister did not say the date had been changed.

Aliyu said, “As regards schools, I just want to make a clarification, 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 would 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.”
