Lagos govt orders reopening of universities, other tertiary institutions on September 14

Lagos State Government has ordered the reopening of tertiary institutions effective September 14.

The state Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu disclosed this on Saturday.

“I am pleased to announce that our tertiary institutions will be allowed to reopen from September 14, 2020, all our tertiary institutions,” the governor said during a briefing on Saturday at the State House, Marina.

It would be recalled that chools in the country had been shut in March as part of measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus disease.
The governor noted that after the WASSCE, primary and secondary schools in the state would also be permitted to reopen for the resumption of academic activities 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.

“Remember that we said that the virus will peak and we will flatten the curve in the month of August. From what we have seen, it appears we have flattened the curve.
“In the last two weeks, we have continued to see a drop in the positivity that we have encountered in the state,” Sanwo-Olu explained.
