The Lagos State Government has ordered all public and private schools below the tertiary level in the state to reopen for the second term 2020/21 academic session from Monday, January 18, 2021.
Commissioner for Education, Mrs Folasade Adefisayo, announced this on Monday.
She said this was in line with the Federal Government’s directive coupled with the second wave of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
The second wave of Coronavirus has increased in Nigeria for the past few days with Lagos State recording huge numbers of positive cases on a daily basis.
Nigeria was on lockdown for over three months during the first quarter of 2020 as they join the rest of the world in battling against the deadly pandemic virus.
