Final year students in tertiary institution to resume first in Lagos State

The Lagos State Government has disclosed that final year students in tertiary institutions in the state will resume first before students on other levels. This is coming as the state prepares to resume academic activities from September 14th.

The Special Adviser to the Governor on Education, Tokunbo Wahab made this known on Thursday while featuring on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme.

Wahab assured that the government had put in place necessary facilities and processes to ensure a safe reopening of classrooms in the state and emphasized that the students in the state will resume in phases.

“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 to come back to school.” He stated.
