Lagos State orders reopening of schools from Nov 2
The Lagos State Government has asked all public and private schools in the state to re-opening for studies from Monday, November 2, according to a statement by the commissioner of education.
Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu had two weeks ago ordered the closure of all schools following the violence that erupted during #EndSARS protests across the metropolis.
State Commissioner for Education, Folasade Adefisayo said in a statement on Thursday that the year 2020 had been an unprecedented year with the recent happenings that regrettably led to frequent closure of schools with attendant learning disruptions faced by all children.
“We pray and hope that there will be no more disruptions in the academic calendar. However, the State Government will always regard the safety of pupils/students, parents and all staff as a matter of priority.
“We recommend that when schools resume on Monday, teaching and learning should continue unhindered till the end of the term,” Adefisayo said.
The commissioner, therefore, urged students to take their studies more seriously in a bid to recover the lost period in order to excel in their academics.
