Nigeria, Africa’s most populous nation, on Monday ended the 100 days shut down of schools across the country as it directed that all the prospective Students in Primary 6, Junior Secondary Schools (JSS) and Senior Secondary School (SSS) 3 should resume in preparation for examinations.
Chairman of the country’s Presidential Task Force (PTF) and Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Mr. Boss Mustapha, disclosed this during the daily briefing held in country’s capital, Abuja, harping on the need for the students to observe all the health guidelines and protocols put in place to guard against the spread of COVID-19 pandemic.
In the same vein, the PTF has lifted ban on inter-state movement which was imposed during the COVID-19 lockdown.
This was part of the modification made to the extended phase-2 of eased lockdown for four weeks effective from Tuesday, 30th June to July 27, 2020.
Other measures put in place include the resumption of local flights as soon as practicable in line with local and international guidelines.
