Professor Olanrewaju Fagbohun, the vice-chancellor of the Lagos State University (LASU), has disclosed how students in the institution will resume following state government's new directives on school reopening.
Legit.ng recalls that the Lagos state government on Saturday, August 29, announced that all tertiary schools in the state would resume on Monday, September 14.
According to Gboyega Akosile, the chief press secretary to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, both primary and secondary schools would tentatively be reopened on Monday, September 21.
In a subsequent development, LASU VC, Prof Fagbohun, on Monday, August 31, said students will resume in batches beginning from September.
Fagbohun, who made this known while speaking on a radio interview in Lagos, further explained that 400, 500 and 600 levels students would resume first before other levels.
He added that on Mondays and Wednesdays, 300 level students would be on campus for lectures, while on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 200 level students would be on campus in order to maintain social distancing.
According to him, this will help prevent a sudden spike in the Covid-19 numbers when schools finally reopen.
“In line with the NCDC requirement for medical facilities, Lagos State University has a COVID-19 team to keep the university on its toes in ensuring compliance. Isolation places have been provided in the university," Fagbohun said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that it was another remarkable feat for the Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu-led administration as the Lagos governor inaugurated new governing councils for the state-owned institutions on Wednesday, August 26.
Speaking after the event through a statement on his Twitter page, Governor Sanwo-Olu said it is a dream and priority of his government to bring reform agenda aimed at transforming tertiary institutions in Lagos state into innovation centres.
