President Muhammadu Buharis spokesperson, Femi Adesina, has again reiterated on federal government’s stand on school resumption following the gradual relaxation of the lockdown ordered by the president on Monday during his speech on COVID-19.

Naija News reports that President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the conditional and phased relaxation of the lockdown imposed on Abuja, Lagos and Ogun States due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The development was contained in the speech delivered by the president during the nationwide broadcast on Monday, 27th April 2020.

However, given an update on the reopening of schools in the country, Femi noted that schools may re-open for those about to take exams.

The spokesman to the president said this in a live interview with the TVC on Tuesday.

“Candidates about to take West African Examinations Council (WAEC) and other examinations may be allowed to go back to school,” Adesina quoted saying.

He said: “If you look at Germany, they gradually reduced their lockdown by opening the schools for those who have exams.”

“Same may apply here as those who are to write WAEC and take examinations may be allowed to resume to take their exams.

“The Presidential Task Force will be the ones to decide on when to re-open.”

In another development, the former Speaker of the Jigawa State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Adamu Ahmed is dead, Naija News report.
