Lagos State Governor, Bbajide Sanwo-Olu has given a date when all schools in the state will resume its full academic activities after months of being shut down to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Sanwo-Olu revealed these in his COVID-19 briefing on Saturday, where he ordered the reopening of schools in the state to take effect from September 14, 2020.

According to the governor, all Universities will resume academic duties from September 14 while primary and secondary schools are tentatively scheduled to re-open from September 21.

He said;

“This decision is not cast in stone and is subject to review of our ongoing modeling and what procedure comes out from the Ministry of Health.”

Lagos State has seen low double-digit daily increases of its COVID-19 report in the past week, recording just 27 new cases on Friday according to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

Sanwo-Olu explained that the decision was based on indications that the pandemic has been managed effectively in the state, as the number of new cases continues to steadily decline.

On the re-opening of event centres, bars, night clubs, beaches, cinemas, the Governor said a review will be done in September to decide whether to allow a re-opening of such public spaces.

On the ban placed on international flights, Sanwo-Olu stressed that he will personally inspect airport facilities and ensure all precautions are taken to keep people in the State safe.

“We will be working with the Ministry of Aviation and NCDC to ensure the safety at our airports are next to none,” he said.
