The Lagos State Government has said that as tertiary institutions reopen next week Monday in the state, it will be just the final-year students going back to classrooms before students on other levels.
Special Adviser on Education to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Tokunbo Wahab disclosed this on Thursday, September 10, 2020, saying that the government had put in place necessary facilities and processes to ensure a safe reopening of classrooms in the state.
Wahab also said that the students in the state would resume in phases.
He also emphasized that what the state government seeks to do from next week is to start a phased reopening of our tertiary institutions.

Wahab said the students have been having their lectures online all along and “they are going to come on campus to have their revision one-on-one and then they can now have their exams and their projects.”
Schools in the country had been shut in March as part of measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus disease.
But the Federal Government announced the resumption of graduating pupils last month to write this year’s West African Senior School Certificate Examination from August 17, 2020, through September 12, 2020.
Sanwo-Olu had subsequently announced the reopening of schools in the state starting with tertiary institutions on September 14, 2020.
