Review that Buhari had facilitated the lockdown beginning from Monday one week from now, yet was, in any case, quiet on the reviving of schools.

He stated: "In the event that you take a gander at Germany, they bit by bit diminished their lockdown by opening the schools for the individuals who have tests.
Same may apply here as the individuals who are to compose WAEC and take assessments might be permitted to resume to take their tests.
The Presidential Task Force will be the ones to settle on when to re-openImportant Update: The federal government through the federal ministry of education have denied the news that “Schools will resume on May 4th”. Don’t believe anyone or blog telling you that schools in Nigeria will resume on November 20th 2020.The Federal Government of Nigeria has announced the new resumption date for school in Nigeria. The Government has earlier look at Monday 4th of May 2020 for both the Universities and Polytechnics students to resume in Nigeria but the new date will be announced by the Government if the Coronavirus in Nigeria has reduced dramatically.
Monday 4th of May 2020 may not be viable as the Government is still contemplating whether to extend the lockdown in Lagos, Abuja and Ogun State. All students are therefore advised to wait for new resumption date that will be announced by the Federal Government when everything about COVID-19 is settled.
The Government has, therefore, intensified effort to stop COVID-19 in Nigeria. Also to help fight against the COVID-19, the Nigerian Government has invited the Chinese medical experts to sell their wisdom of experience in combating the coronavirus pandemic.
We may recall that Mr Sonny Echono on behalf of the Permanent Secretary to the Ministry of Education, Adamu Adamu directed all 104 Unity Schools in the Country should close on or before 26th of March 2020 for a period of one month as a proactive measure to contain the spread of the Coronavirus also known as COV ID-19.
