ADEOLA AJAYI, EKITI
The Governor of Lagos decided to reverse the decision to open all academic sector in the state.
Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has given reasons for the continued closure of schools and tertiary institutions in the state.
Sanwo-Olu gave the reasons two weeks after announcing that guidelines for reopening schools would be made public in the state.
He spoke during the 15th press briefing held at the State House in Marina to give updates on Lagos COVID-19 response
“Regarding the educational sector, I did mention that by now, we will be expressing a full guideline. Those guidelines are not ready yet because of the engagements we are having with the various stakeholders in that sector. But we will need to continue to encourage the online learning that we have.
“That has started extensively with our higher institutions. We are encouraging other private sectors as well to use as much online capability as a form of intervention in the educational sector until the statistics that we have subsided and we are at a stage that all of these schools can reopen again.”
