Federal Government Colleges get nod to reopen on October 12

Following the further easing of the lockdown imposed on the country following the spread of the Coronavirus Disease to the country, the Federal Government have given the nod for federal Colleges to reopen.

It would be recalled that schools were ordered shut by the Federal Government in March in the bid to curtail the spread of the virus.

The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 headed by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha had approved the reopening of schools by states, but said those under its control will remain closed.

The PTF said the government was not comfortable enough to allow schools to reopen, warning state governments to ensure maximum compliance in order not to allow the spread of the pandemic among students.

Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, has however told Heads of the various Federal Government-owned schools that they could reopen on October 12, 2020.

Those in boarding houses are to resume on October 11, 2020.

In line with the current realities, the Federal Ministry of Education has advised the schools to strictly observe the COVID-19 protocols upon resumption.

As part of the directives by to the schools, those that did not conclude second term before the hurried closure in March are to do so. They are then to immediately commence third term and conclude in December.
