Covid19: Kogi Makes U – Turn Schools to Reopen Jan 18 …. We Cannot Jeopardize Education, Says Yahaya Bello


 

Kogi State Government says it is not planning to shutdown schools beyond January 18, 2020, as the Second Wave of Covid-19 continues in the country.

The Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello made this known today while signing the 2021 budget.

Yahaya Bello had earlier made his stance and unique approach to fighting Covid-19 public to all Nigerians.

Nigerian Government had announced shut down of schools and other public places as a result of the Corona Virus pandemic outbreak as a measure to control the spread of the disease.

But the Kogi state Governor says the country has not recovered from the effects of lockdown on the education sector, despite the fact that Kogi is Corona Virus free.

Kogi students have continued to enjoy normal academic exercises since the lockdown.
