A few guardians in Lagos State are against plans to revive schools.

Prior this week, the Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, talked on plans to isolate classes into morning and evening meetings, in an offer to revive schools the nation over.

Addressing NAN on Thursday, a few guardians noted it was significant for the bureaucratic and state governments to keep on protecting youngsters from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ayobami Ojo, a government worker, who lives in Ikotun, requested the kids to remain at home until the pandemic is successfully contained or an immunization is found.

“There is no need of considering any morning and evening classes for now; let the children continue to stay safe at home as the virus is increasing every day,” he said.

A businesswoman, Abiodun Aina, who resides in Ayobo, said: “It is difficult to control adults, let alone children, we should not risk the lives of children. A two-shift option for classes may not stop the spread of the virus.

Kayode Jacob, a specialist, who lives around Iyana-Ipaja, brought up that college and auxiliary schools understudies can be advised, yet it will be hard to control nursery and elementary school students.

As at Thursday evening, Nigeria had recorded affirmed 8,733 cases with an aggregate of 254 passings.
