Lagos to reopen primary, secondary schools Sept 21 – Sanwo-Olu

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, says primary and secondary schools in the state will be allowed to reopen effective September 21, 2020.

Schools in the country had been shut in March as part of measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus disease.

However, the Federal Government announced the resumption of graduating pupils effective August 4, 2020, to write this year’s West African Senior School Certificate Examination from August 17, 2020, through September 12, 2020.

Speaking during a briefing on Saturday at the State House, Marina, Sanwo-Olu revealed that primary and secondary schools would be permitted to reopen from September 21 while tertiary institutions would reopen a week earlier.

“I am pleased to announce that our tertiary institutions will be allowed to reopen from September 14, 2020, all our tertiary institutions.

“However, as regards our primary and secondary schools, we are working towards reopening them around the 21st of September 2020. This position is not cast in stone and subject to a review of our ongoing monitoring and procedures from the Ministry of Health.

“Remember that we said that the virus will peak and we will flatten the curve in the month of August. From what we have seen, it appears we have flattened the curve. In the last two weeks, we have continued to see a drop in the positivity that we have encountered in the state,” the governor said.
