|BREAKING: Lagos considers closure of schools over #EndSARS protests by Kenyans247(1): Mon 19, October, 2020 08:29pm|
Head of Public Affairs, Lagos State Ministry of Education, Kayode Abayomi, has said the state may ask students to “stay at home for now” over the ongoing #EndSARS protests across the country.
This is as academic activities were affected in some schools in the state on Monday as protests against police brutality and bad governance continue.
When contacted on the telephone, Abayomi, told The PUNCH that the Ministry of Education is awaiting a directive from the governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to order the schools’ closure.
He said, “We are considering the option of asking the students to stay at home, for now, pending when the protests will be over.
“It is at the consideration level. We are waiting for the governor’s directive in that aspect. As soon as we get the directive to go ahead, we (can) then ask them to stay at home for now.”
The PUNCH had reported that the Lagos State Government approved that both public and private schools in the state can fully resume from Monday, October 19, 2020.
Schools in the state were previously closed to curb the spread of coronavirus in the state.
The Lagos State Commissioner for Education, Mrs Folasade Adefisayo, who made the announcement in a press statement last Monday, said the physical resumption, which was for the 2020/2021 academic session, would include pupils in pre-primary, daycare, kindergarten, and nursery schools.
The PUNCH gathered that many students and teachers encountered difficulty in getting to schools in the state on Monday.
