Shift Resumption Date By Three Months – House Of Reps Tells FG

The January 18th resumption date for all schools across the country has been faulted by the House of Representatives.

The house faulted the Federal Government directives for all schools to resume on Monday despite the rising cases of coronavirus.

In another news: January 18 Resumption Date Might Be Shifted – FG. According to the House, the relevant committees of the national assembly were not consulted before announcing resumption date.

This was contrary to the federal government’s claim that all relevant stakeholders were consulted before arriving at the January 18, 2021, resumption date.

This was revealed by the Chairman of the House Committee on Basic Education and Services, Prof Julius Ihonvbere.

He said:

“They did not consult us; at least in my committee, nobody from the ministry spoke to me. I have been in Abuja. And I am not sure that they spoke to any of my members. They just don’t see us as part of the critical stakeholders.”

The statement was titled “School resumption: Are we truly prepared?”, reads:

“The Committee on Basic Education and Services, House of Representatives, has received with concern the decision of the Federal Government to reopen schools on January 18, 2021.

“We are particularly concerned that when the infection rates hovered around 500 and under, schools were closed; but now that it hovers well above 1,000 infections daily, schools are being reopened.

Why are we rushing to reopen schools without adequate verifiable and sustainable arrangements to protect and secure our children?”
