Lagos Government Directs Final Year Students to Resume on Monday

The Lagos State government has said the final year students will go back to classrooms, as tertiary institutions reopen next Monday.

This was confirmed by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s Special Adviser on Education, Tokunbo Wahab, while speaking on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily on Thursday.

Sanwo-Olu had announced the re-opening of schools in the state, starting with tertiary institutions on September 14, 2020.

Nyscinfo gathered that secondary and primary schools are to resume a week after.

Howsoever, Wahab emphasized that the students in the state will resume in phases. He said;

“Basically, we are at a point where scientifically, we’ve been proven to have flattened the curve. And it invariably means that we are not as exposed as we used to be some five, four, three months back. So, consequently, we have to find a way to bring our lives back to normal. And in doing that, education is very critical to whatever we are going to do.

“In the past few weeks, we’ve been putting in place measures and facilities that will enable our children come back to school.

“Even at that, what we seek to do from next week is to start a phased reopening of our tertiary institutions.

“On the 14th, we have announced that our tertiary institutions are going to open to our students for the first time after six months.”
