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.

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.

Spend less on the Internet According to The Guardian, the school hold classes for students, especially those preparing to 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.

In another news report, the Nigerian government has confirmed the evacuation of 362 citizens stranded in the northern African country of Egyp and Asian country India.

We reported that the confirmation was made late on Friday, June 12 by the minister of foreign affairs,

The minister posted the information on his verified Twitter handle. In the breakdown, he said 102 Nigerians were brought back home from Egypt and another 260 from India.

You want to go to school with this virus around
Don't you know it's for your own safety
If you want to go to school so badly then find something online to learn about
Why are Nigerians so dumb

Why do you need to insult Nigerians as a whole because you don't want to go back to school or because you're done in school??.
I guess you haven't stepped out of your comfort zone since the lockdown started.
You locked schools and opened markets, busy markets to be precise and you think you have sense by supporting the lockdown of schools?. Well, all the inflation of numbers will soon be obvious when we have more active cases than the estimated population of Nigeria.
Thank you.

At times you need to take the bull by the horn, concerning some Nigerian's behaviours. They kind of speak blindly, well it's not their fault.
