The minister of education, Adamu Adamu, however, noted that the resumption would be reviewed again

FG has said that it did not agree on January 18 resumption with stakeholders in the education sector

Despite the order made on Thursday, January 14, for the resumption of all private and public schools across the country on January 18, the federal government has said it was against the decision.

Daily Trust reports that while speaking at the briefing of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, on Monday, January 18, the minister of education, Adamu Adamu, said the federal government did not agree with the states on the resumption date.

We gathered the minister, who noted that the PTF would monitor the COVID-19 situation on a daily basis, said schools’ resumption could be reviewed again.

He said:

“We sat down, looked at the figures and we took the decision that schools should not open. Unfortunately, we have to state this because it is supposed to be a collective decision, but you must understand that the schools we’re talking about, the federal government has only about 100 out of thousands of schools.

“The schools are under the jurisdiction of states and just as the PTF was unanimous in saying that schools should not open, states were unanimous that schools should open.

“Boss Mustapha, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) and PTF chairman, also said the school resumption would be reviewed due to rising daily numbers of infections and the challenges of case management, especially the shortage of oxygen.

He warned Nigerians to cooperate with the PTF to avoid the second lockdown in the country, adding that the pandemic is raging and that all tiers of government and citizens must keep their hands-on-deck.

A Nigerian man lost his life in the hands of a commercial sex worker in one of the hotels in Owerri, the Imo state capital.


It was gathered that the prostitute was enraged when her customer refused to pay her the agreed amount after going through several rounds of sexual intercourse which prompted her to stab the man to death.

The victim lodged in the hotel after a late night with the lady and was found dead in the morning after several knocks at his room by the staff of the hotel.

An insider told our correspondent that the sex worker who killed his client disappeared into the thin air in the early hours of Friday without being noticed by the management.

Further reports revealed that the residents of the area, on hearing the ugly incident, mobilized and immediately set the hotel on fire.

The reason, however, was that the hotel, according to the residents, had served as a hideout and beehive of commercial activities. It is located somewhere in Owerri-west LGA of Imo state.

Orlando Ikeokwu, the Imo police public relations officer’s phone lines were unreachable to confirm the incident as at press time.

Daily Devotion 21-01-21: ‘SEE BY THE WORD AND SPEAK ACCORDINGLY’ by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

When you see the invisible, the wilderness experience will end. See God doing great things in your life and through your life this year. See yourself prosperous, healthy, vibrant and strong.

While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal (2 Corinthians 4:18).

We’re not supposed to be victims in the earth, but victors. But many Christians live as victims, as captives of adverse circumstances, because they neither see nor live by the Word. The adversities, pressures and difficulties of life aren’t a factor. Paul, in the preceding verse to our opening scripture, calls them “light affliction, which is but for a moment….”

In other words, to you, that problem or adverse circumstance may have been for ten years, but it’s subject to change, and guaranteed to work for you a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. How? The answer is what we read in our opening verse! Stop looking at your present physical condition; see the invisible.

When you see the invisible, the wilderness experience will end. See God doing great things in your life and through your life this year. See yourself prosperous, healthy, vibrant and strong. See yourself walking in victory and in the glory of God. See the picture, accept it, and speak accordingly. Consider the story of Abraham in Genesis 17. He took his gaze off what his physical senses dictated to him and looked at the invisible through the eyes of the spirit. He saw himself as the father of many, just as God had said.

The Apostle Paul, in Romans 4:17, explains to us that Abraham believed what God had said concerning him: “(As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.”

This is the beginning of a new year; something you must do consciously and consistently every day is to boldly declare who you really are. Don’t speak failure; don’t speak defeat. Have the right vision. See from God’s perspective. Meditate on and declare His Word.

When you affirm what God has said about you, your soul will be adjusted to act that way. Whatever God has said about you, endorse it, believe it, and affirm it to yourself consistently (Hebrews 13:5- 6). Consciously programme your life with the Word of God.


Confession

I see myself making progress with giant strides; my path is that of the just that shines brighter and brighter unto the perfect day. My focus is on the Lord and His Word; His Wisdom guides and rules my life. I see and walk in victory, health, prosperity and joy, now and always, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
