The Lagos state government has on Monday shut down schools across the state following crisis resulting from the continued #ENDSARS Protests.
Lagos state Commissioner for Education, Mrs. Folasade Adefisayo in a statement said ” the safety of the pupils/students, parents and all staff working in schools is paramount at this critical period.
She advised parents to keep an eye on their wards and prevent them from being used as tools by those who might want to hijack the protests to unleash mayhem on the society.
Mrs. Adefisayo also encouraged schools to utilise other means of distance teaching and learning such as radio, television and online media similar to the practice during the closure occasioned by the COVID-19 lockdown.
The Commissioner said that a new date for resumption of all classes will be announced in due course.
