BREAKING: Lagos to reopen primary, secondary schools Sept 21 – Sanwo-Olu

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, says primary and secondary schools in the state will be allowed to reopen effective September 21, 2020.

“As regards our primary and secondary schools, we are working towards reopening them around the 21st of September 2020. This position is not cast in stone and subject to a review of our ongoing monitoring and procedures from the Ministry of Health.

In the last two weeks, we have continued to see a drop in the positivity that we have encountered in the state,” the governor said during a briefing on Saturday at the State House, Marina.

Schools in the country had been shut in March as part of measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus disease.
