Yes that’s right! The Presidential Task Force on Coronavirus response has asked businesses, offices, professional bodies, places of worship and educational institutions, to prepare for reopenining after the “two weeks gradual ease of lockdown”.
The Chairman of the PTF COVID-19 and Secretary to the government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, made this known to the public while speaking at the daily briefing on Tuesday.
He also urged Nigerians to prepare for “behavioral change” which he said ” is a must for every citizen because COVID-19 has changed the world completely”
Summary: According to the PTF, schools might resume anytime after 1st June 2020. But please note that Ministry of Education will also have to officially instruct schools to resume. The ministry is yet to give any order/statement. Once they do, we will update this page.

When will schools resume? Is that the question you have been asking? If so, this page is just fore you! Continue reading below.
One of the most asked questions students ask is “when will school resume?” And when students ask these question, they just need a direct answer. So, if you want a direct answer, school might resume either ending MAY or early JUNE!
Now I hope you took note of the keyword “might“? Sure you know what that word means. But if you don’t, might simply means it is not certain.
That’s correct! The resumption date is not yet certain but here at Allschool we really do hope schools resumes this May or worst get to worst, June!
Before I proceed with this write-up, be assured that once the resumption date is announced we will be the first person to post it on this page. We assure you that we will post only 100% confirmed information.
Few days ago, the Federal Government through the Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, said there is no resumption date for schools yet.
Below is except from the report:
“The Federal Government is not ready to put children at risk by opening schools.
“The President actually addressed the issue of the opening of the economy gradually. Until that is done, we cannot foresee or immediately tell you when all the schools will be reopened.
“It will not be proper for us to simply give you a date. It has to be in tandem with these opening terms. We don’t want to put our children at risk. None of these schools can function on their own without the society.
“On the question of children promoting to the next class, those exams will happen when we are satisfied that the children have learnt what is enough for them to move.
“For those who are in the exit classes of junior basic and senior secondary schools, we are preparing them and will continue to.
