The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has further directed the closure of all public and private schools in the state and urge pupils/students to stay at home following the high tension generated by the ongoing #EndSARS protests across the state and Nigeria.
The Commissioner for Education, Mrs Folasade Adefisayo, who issued the directive, said, “The safety of the pupils/students, parents and all staff working in schools was paramount at this critical period.”
However, Adefisayo, advised that parents should keep an eye on their wards and not allow them to be used as willing tools in the hands of those who might want to hijack the protests to unleash mayhem and cause havoc on citizenry and the society.
The Commissioner also encouraged schools to utilise other means of distance teaching and learning such as radio, television and online media as they have been doing during and after COVID-19 lockdown.
According to Adefisayo, a new date of resumption for all classes will be announced as soon as possible.
