In other news, the Federal Government has advised stakeholders in the education sector to ensure adherence to COVID-19 prevention protocols as schools open for exit classes.

Secretary to the Government of the Federation and PTF Chairman, Boss Mustapha said during a briefing in Abuja that all stakeholders must ensure strict compliance with precautionary measures.

Mustapha said;

I wish to restate that the education sector is critical for the development of our children and our nation. Reopening the sector is also a source of concern based on the fact that the school system remains a veritable ground for increasing community transmission if appropriate protocols are not put in place and more importantly adhered to.

The PTF chairman then implored stakeholders to ensure that the agreed protocols are put in place and measures strictly adhered to.
