The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has clarified why schools in the state stay shut.
Sanwo-Olu, talking at a press instructions at the State House in Marina, conceded that the rules for reviving schools were not prepared.
The Governor had guaranteed fourteen days prior, that the rules would be made open.
He said schools can’t be permitted to revive with the expanding instances of COVID-19 in the state.
Sanwo-Olu, be that as it may, said his legislature was settling the conventions to revive fundamental and auxiliary schools, taking note of that gatherings were at present being held with partners.
“Regarding the educational sector, I did mention that by now, we will be expressing a full guideline. Those guidelines are not ready yet because of the engagements we are having with the various stakeholders in that sector. But we will need to continue to encourage the online learning that we have.
“That has started extensively with our higher institutions. We are encouraging other private sectors as well to use as much online capability as a form of intervention in the educational sector until the statistics that we have subsided and we are at a stage that all of these schools can reopen again,” Sanwo-Olu said.
