Minister of Environment, Muhammad Mahmood, said that on Monday the cleaning of schools in front of the resumption of scholarly exercises would start on Tuesday.
He uncovered this during the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 briefing in Abuja, and guaranteed Nigerians that the service had enough hands on ground to complete the purification work out.
“Earlier I told you that we have sat with the Ministry of Education and we have the list of all the schools that need to be disinfected before resumption.
“Well, what we plan to do now is to do (decontaminate) the centres that will be used.”
“The delay is because it is better to disinfect and decontaminate within a short period of time, so that the kids will be going back into these classes when they have been freshly decontaminated.
“This is because the chemicals we use are chemicals that are not long-lasting; they have short contact time to do their job.
“So, we will be getting this done before Monday when they (school children) will be back to use these classes.”
