FG to disinfect schools nationwide
By our correspondent
The Minister of Environment, Muhammad Mahmood, stated this in Abuja on Monday at a briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19.
He said: “We’re initiating a programme of decontaminating and disinfecting our schools before they open.
“Because subsequently in the phases (of relaxing the lockdown), I believe we’ll get to that point when we start opening the schools.
“So, we’ll be liaising with the Federal Ministry of Education to make sure we have the needed data to carry out the exercise.”
