Schools have been closed since March in a bid to contain the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID).
However, chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha, announced on Monday, June 29 that the president has approved the committee’s recommendation that students of graduating classes (Primary 6, JSS 3, and SS 3) resume in preparation for examinations.
The president has also lifted the ban on interstate movement that has been in place nationwide since the beginning of May.
Movement across state boundaries are allowed only outside of curfew hours of 10 pm to 4 am, according to Mustapha.
Domestic aviation service will also resume as soon as “practicable in line with existing international and local guidelines on COVID-19” according to the new measures announced on Monday.
