#EndSARS: Lagos Orders Closure Of Schools
The directive is for both the public and private schools
The Lagos State government has directed all primary and secondary schools across the state to be closed from Tuesday, October 20.
The directive, according to the statement issued by the commissioner for education, Folasade Adefisayo, is for both the public and private schools.
The statement, which was signed on behalf of the commissioner by the education ministry’s spokesman, Kayode Abayomi, noted that the new development is in response to the escalating protests against police brutality in the state. The directive is coming on the same day schools reopened fully for all categories of classes including daycare, kindergarten, and nursery groups.
According to the state, the safety of the pupils and their teachers is paramount and so deserves priority.
Mr. Abayomi wrote; “She however advised parents to 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 on the society.
“The commissioner also encouraged schools to utilize other means of distance teaching and learning i.e radio, television, and online media as they have been doing during and post the recent COVID-19 lockdown.”
He said a new date for resumption of all classes will be announced as soon as appropriate.
The government had last week scheduled full reopening of the schools for Monday, but protests across some states in the country on Monday escalated with many businesses and offices shut in Lagos.
