The Nigerian government has ordered the closure of all schools in the country until January 18, 2021.

The chairman of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha, made this known at its briefing on Monday.

Most schools across Nigeria have already closed for the year. But many had scheduled the first and second weeks of January for resumption.

On Monday, Mr Mustapha said the decision to move the date was reached based on advice from the federal ministry of education as part of measures to curtail the spread of coronavirus.
