As tertiary institutions reopen next Monday in Lagos State , the state government says final – year students will go back to the classrooms before students on other levels .

Tokunbo Wahab , Special Adviser on Education to Governor , Babajide Sanwo – Olu , made this known on Thursday while featuring on Channels Television’ s programme , Sunrise Daily .

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 .

“ I am pleased to announce that our tertiary institutions will be allowed to reopen from September 14, 2020, all our tertiary institutions, ” the governor had said , adding that secondary and primary schools would resume a week after.

Speaking on Thursday , Wahab explained that the government had put in place necessary facilities and processes to ensure a safe reopening of classrooms in the state.

He also emphasised that the students in the state will resume in phases .

The governor ’ s aide said , “ Basically, we are at a point where scientifically we’ ve been proven to have flattened the curve .

And it invariably means that we are not as exposed as we used to be some five , four , three months back .

So , consequently , we have to find a way to bring our lives back to normal.

And in doing that , education is very critical to whatever we are going to do .

“ In the past few weeks, we’ ve been putting in place measures and facilities that will enable our children come back to school .

“ Even at that , what we seek to do from next week is to start a phased reopening of our tertiary institutions.

“ On the 14 th we have announced that our tertiary institutions are going to open to our students for the first time after six months . ”

Wahab said the students have been having their lectures online all the while 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 . ”


Continuing , he said , “ For our tertiary (institutions) from on the 14 th , we are going to start with the final year students across our tertiary institutions.

With those final – year students , we are sure that they are older , they are more mature , and they are going to meet up with the protocol as put in place by the institutions based on the regulations of the NCDC (Nigeria Centre for Disease Control ) .

“ After we have phased them out, maybe after their exams , then, those in the penultimate year will come on campus .

So , we are not going to put all our students on campus at the same time .

“ For our secondary from on the 21 st , they are also going to have a phased resumption .
