The Lagos state government says schools in the state will be reopened in phases as announced by Tokunbo Wahab, Special Adviser on Education to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu in an interview on Channels Television.
He said that phased resumption is necessary to flatten the curve and gradually integrate the pupils back to the normal school process.
“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.”
