The Ebonyi State governor, Dave Umahi, on Saturday ordered all schools in the state to reopen for academic activities on January 18.

The governor had earlier directed the schools to resume from the Christmas and New Year holiday on January 4.

The state’s Commissioner for Education, Dr. Onyebuch Chima, who disclosed this in a statement in Abakaliki, said the change in school resumption date was part of the preventive measures taken by the government to check spread of COVID-19 cases in the state.
