Anambra Shifts School Resumption Date To January 26th

Following the hike in Covid-19 cases across the country and the tendency of resuming on the 18th of January as earlier stipulated by the Federal Government, Anambra State Government had shifted resumption of schools from January 18th to January 26th.

The State Governor Willie Obiano made this known in Awka on Tuesday 12th January, during a broadcast on the second wave of COVID -19

In his words, Obiano said, “Schools in Anambra shall not re-open on January 18th, 2021 as earlier scheduled. Rather, schools will re-open after two weeks from today to enable the principals and teachers to prepare for the return of our children”.

Stressing this further, the governor said “Churches and other religious organizations are advised to set up action teams and go back to the practices that helped us in the first phase of the pandemic. We shall align with any policy on a possible nationwide curfew by the Federal Government to ensure effective compliance”.

He added that “Our test centres are active and ready to handle cases with impressive turnaround time. We have cascaded our sample collection to all the 21 local government areas in the state. For the sake of emphasis, nobody should go to any market, public places, churches, schools, enter any transport, attend functions as stated above without properly wearing of facemasks”“.

 He also made it known that markets would be shut down, if they are found violating COVID-19 protocols after one week
