COVID-19: FG finally speaks about school resumption plan

The Nigerian government has said the ministry of education will collaborate with the presidential task force (PTF) on COVID-19 to
work out a plan for the resumption of schools across the country.
The task force (PTF) on COVID-19 made the disclosure on Thursday, June 11, during a hearing held by the House of Representatives
adhoc committee on COVID-19, Daily Trust reported.
The federal government said a plan for the resumption of schools across the country is currently on going. 
Sani Aliyu, the national coordinator of the PTF told the lawmakers that the plan may allow students who are to write examinations to be allowed so that the next academic session
would not be disrupted.
He explained that the reopening of schools was being delayed to protect vulnerable Nigerians from contracting the virus.
Meanwhile, the efforts to end the coronavirus crisis may suffer a setback as some schools in
Lagos state have deployed all possible strategies to reopen against the federal government's directive.
The government had imposed a total lockdown on schools across all levels as part of measure
to stem down the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, with the lockdown now in its third month.

Findings, however, revealed that some private primary and secondary schools in the commercial capital city have been reopening --albeit under various cunny guises.
Lagos, the epicentre of the Covid-19
pandemic, accounts for practically 51% of the total infection in Nigeria with the state alone having 6,840 cases.

According to The Guardian, the school hold classes for students, especially those preparing to write Junior Secondary School and West African Examination Council (WAEC).
The students, dressed in mufti, were said to have been carrying fewer books as management of a popular private school in Onipanu area of Odi-Olowo/Ojuwoye Local
Council Development Area (LCDA)
surreptitiously opened its facilities for students to learn.
The proprietor of the school was said to have opened the school because of the economic hardship engendered by the coronavirus
pandemic and lockdown.
