Following the closure of all schools in Nigeria from Primary to tertiary schooling levels as a result of the threatening Coronavirus pandemic that has encroached all polities worldwide, the Nigerian Federal government has taken a decision to disinfect all schools across Nigeria before announcing any resumption.
This was made known by the honourable Minister of Environment, Mr. Muhammad Mahmood, as he unveils the Federal government’s plans to disinfect and decontaminate schools nationwide before resumption.
He said the Federal Ministry of Environment would get the data of schools nationwide from the Federal Ministry of Education to carry out the job.
“We are initiating a programme of decontaminating and disinfecting our schools before they open.
“Because subsequently, in the phases (of reopening the lockdown), I believe we will get to that point when we start opening the schools.
“So, we will be liaising with the Federal Ministry of Education to make sure we have the needed data to carry out the exercise,” he added.
