The Lagos State Government has directed all pupils and students in public and private schools to stay at home following the tension generated by the anti-SARS protests across the state.
The Commissioner for Education, Mrs. Folasade Adefisayo, who issued the directive on Monday, said the safety of the pupils and students, parents and all staff working in schools is paramount at this critical period.
She, however, enjoined 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 utilise other means of distance teaching and learning like radio, television and online media as they have been doing during and post the recent COVID-19 lockdown.
According to Adefisayo, a new date of resumption for all classes would be announced as soon as possible.Follow us on social media
