The Lagos State Government has announced that only final year students will resume classes, as tertiary institutions in the state reopen on Monday, September 14, 2020.
The Special Adviser to the Governor on Education, Tokunbo Wahab, gave the confirmation, on Thursday, while speaking on Channels Television’s ‘Sunrise Daily’.
The Special Adviser emphasized that the students of tertiary institutions in the state will resume in phases.
“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 use 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 tom 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.”
Recall that the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo- Olu had announced that on September 14, 2020, tertiary institutions in the state will be reopen, while a tentative date of September 21, 2020, was fixed for the reopening of primary and secondary schools in the states.
