Despite federal government of Nigeria contemplating on shifting school resumption date because of the second wave of Covid 19 Pandemic, Bauchi state government has said that schools would reopen on Monday 18, January.
The State Commissioner of Education, Dr Aliyu Tilde, said this this while reacting to the announcement made by the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu Monday at the Presidential Task Force briefing that the Federal Government was reviewing the Monday 18th January school resumption.
The Commissioner in a statement made available to newsmen in Bauchi on Tuesday said that the State is still insisting on resuming on Monday because till date, there is no single case of Covid-19 infection, reported in schools in the state.
“Therefore, regardless of any review that may take place in some quarters, Bauchi State Ministry of Education is determined to reopen schools in the state on January 18th, unfailingly, as earlier decided by the State Executive Council. The 2020/2021 school calendar starts that day. Unless we stand resolute on our school plan for the year, the session will be mutilated by fear of Covid-19 as was 2019/2020″ The statement read
The Commissioner urged parents, teachers, students and other stakeholders to prepare for the year’s academic session, assuring that the state would do everything within it’s power to prevent any outbreak of Covid-19 by adhering to all the protocols such as the use of face masks, social distance, sanitation and testing in schools as it is elsewhere, not with further closures, except under a resoundingly imminent emergency.
