A former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani, has raised concern on the Federal Government’s confusion on how to tackle the second wave of COVID-19.
This comes despite the government’s all clear for the reopening of schools regardless of huge cases recorded every day, including the over 1400 cases the Nigeria Center for Disease Control recorded on Sunday.
In the tweet posted on his verified Twitter handle, Sani highlighted that the state governments should be responsible for ensuring adherence to COVID-19 measures.
He tweeted: “Reopening schools and other #COVID19 regulatory measures should be a matter for the states and not the FG; the 36 states, including FCT have different infection rates. There is evident confusion on how to tackle the second wave.”

Meanwhile, public and private schools in the Federal Capital Territory as well some states across the country resumed for academic activities on Monday amid the second wave of COVID-19.
Reports from The Punch revealed that schools in Ogun complied partially to COVID-19 protocols as they resumed today.
Some schools reportedly had no temperature checks for those entering the premises, even though nose covers were made mandatory for those accessing the school environment.
Handwashing facilities were also provided at the entrance of some schools but some students and parents did not wash their hands or use hand sanitisers before entering the school premises, the report added.
At the time of this report, Nigerian has recorded more than 110,300 cases of the deadly virus with close to 1,500 deaths.
Meanwhile, the NCDC on Twitter reiterated that school authorities must “#TakeResponsibility to ensure; temperature checks at entry points for everyone entering the school environment, compulsory use of a face mask, provision of hand-washing facilities and classrooms are well ventilated.”
As we collectively work towards school resumption, it‘s important to institute safety measures in line with the national #COVID19 guidelines.#TakeResponsibility to reduce the risk of spread among children and school staff.
