Government sources said on Monday that the date had been tentatively agreed upon as resumption date for the new academic session for tertiary institutions following a meeting by the state governor, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, with stakeholders including COVID-19 management team.

Delta State is currently in the eighth position on Nigeria’s COVID-19 chart with 1,744 confirmed infections.

Of the number, the State has managed and discharged 1,540 patients with 157 currently undergoing treatment.
