The Lagos state government on Thursday revealed that the University of Lagos and other tertiary institutions in the state will resume on September 14.
The announcement comes Following Lagos State Government’s decision to reopen tertiary institutions in the state on Monday, the government has added that only final-year students will go back to the classrooms before students on other levels.
While featuring on Channels Television’s programme, Sunrise Daily, Tokunbo Wahab, Special Adviser on Education to Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, stated that,
“I am pleased to announce that our tertiary institutions will be allowed to reopen from September 14, 2020, all our tertiary institutions,” the governor had said, adding that secondary and primary schools would resume a week after.
“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. He added.
Mr. Tokunbo Wahab further explained that the government had put in place necessary facilities and processes to ensure a safe reopening of classrooms in the state.
