Following the uproar of student on resumption date, during the Presidential Task Force Daily briefing for the 22nd of June, 2020 which was just concluded, the Secretary to the President and Chairman of the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha has given an update on school resumption and he has conveyed a very important message for every Scholar in Nigeria.
Mr. Boss Mustapha stresses the surge in the confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the country and how the Federal Government is trying to do something about it. Boss Mustapha says that the number of confirmed cases has reached 20,000 overnight as more than 400 cases were newly discovered.
This surely will have a great impact on the resumption of school activities in the country. He says that what every scholar should know is that school will resume following the re-opening of local airports and interstate movement. He says that the delay in the re-opening of these institutions now is that the managements are still planning an effective way to safely re-open without compromising the lives of anyone.
There is a very high possibility that inter-state movement which was formerly scheduled to open on the 19th of June, 2020 will be open very soon as there are good news flying around that Nigerian Scientists have developed a vaccine which will prevent every Nigerian from getting infected by the Novel Coronavirus. This update was given on TVC news this afternoon.
So, since there is a vaccine which has been tested several times and it proved effective, there is a relief that everything may soon go back to normal especially students going back to their various schools.
According to Boss Mustapha during the PTF briefing on COVID-19, every student, teacher and school owner should be getting prepared as the date for the resumption of schools nationwide will be announced soon. Though, currently there is no fixed date.
