FG Sends Warning Message To Lagos, Oyo, Other States
The Federal Government has sent a note of warning to Lagos, Oyo and other states planning to reopen schools, as cases of COVID-19 dwindle in the country.
Schools were closed down across the country earlier this year in a bid to curb the spread of COVID-19.

The Governor of Lagos State Babajide Sanwo-Olu had few days back given the order to reopen schools in the state from September 14.

Tertiary institutions are set to re-open from September 14 while primary and secondary schools are tentatively billed for re-opening from September 21.

Ahead of the proposed resumption of academic activities in Lagos state and some other states, the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 has called for caution among the stakeholders.

The Nation reports that the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) and chairman of the PTF, Boss Mustapha, cited how such haste escalated the COVID-19 management situation in some other countries.

Boss Mustapha said it would be in the best interest of Nigeria to stick to the pattern proven effective since the national response was launched.

He said;

“It is in the above context that the PTF appreciates the on-going calls for re-opening of the education sector and indeed some sub-nationals are already making preparations for such.

“Whilst the PTF does not discourage making such preparations, we need to be guided by experiences from countries such as Germany, France, the United States and the UK where opening of schools in some cities led to an increase in confirmed cases and fatalities.”
