Lagos State Government Directs Only Final Year Students of Tertiary Institutions To Reopen
The Lagos State government has directed only final year students of tertiary institutions to resume on Monday, September 14, 2020. This was announced by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s Special Adviser on Education, Tokunbo Wahab during an interview with Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily on Thursday.
He also 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.
The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-olu had earlier announced the re-opening of tertiary institutions on September 14, 2020 while secondary and primary schools will resume on September 21, 2020.
