In a news report by myschoolnews, it was stated that the FG has released 21 September as the resumption date for all schools in Nigeria

ROUNDCHECK FINDINGS

The news report has only been seen on myschoolnews. An excerpt of the report claimed that the Federal Government fixed September 21 for completion of first semester examinations in Tertiary Institutions
