The Lagos state government has revealed that schools in the state will be reopened in phases.

 

Tokunbo Wahab, Special Adviser on Education to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu said in an interview on Channels Television that phased resumption is necessary to flatten the curve and gradually integrate the pupils back to the normal school process.

 

Wahab said final year students of tertiary institutions will be the first set of pupils to resume in the state. Secondary school students will also have a phased resumption from September 21. Senior Secondary school three (SS3) students are going to finish their exams upon resumption.

He said;

 

“Not all the pupils in the state will be allowed to resume at the same time. Resumption will be phased to the extent that on the 21st we will not open our primary schools yet.

“From next week, we will start a phased reopening of our tertiary institutions. On the 14th we announced that tertiary institutions will reopen for the first time after six months of closure. Within the six months the students were receiving lecturers online.

“We are going to start with final year students across our tertiary institutions. Then after their exams, those in their penultimate year can resume.”

 

Parents have been informed and are advised to cooperate with the state government.
