The concerned parents in an open letter to the Governor, a copy made available to Legit.ng on Monday, March 27, appreciated Sanwo-Olu’s unbiased and unalloyed support to the deceased family, urging him to consider the interest of students in terminal classes of year 9 and 12 respectively.
"The PTA submits that it is morally unfair to make other innocent children suffer for what they know nothing about with the educational trajectory of most of them hanging in the balance and indeed about to be completely jeopardized by the continuous closure of the school.
"Chrisland PTA hereby cries out in the interest of her children who are suffering great mental stress and disillusionment over the current state of impasse. It should be noted that a lot of these children require psychological intervention as most of them are still suffering from the emotional trauma of losing one of their fellow students and cannot understand why they are at the same time being punished by the Government for the same occurrence.
"The PTA has been offering moral support and empathy to the Sdeniran family over this unfortunate and heartbreaking incident. While we continue to sympathize with the Adenirans and pray that God will continually uphold them, we call on his Excellency, the Executive Governor of Lagos state to kindly and urgently consider the passionate appeal of all Chrisland parents and the cry of over 500 children who have sadly been grounded at home, for upward of seven weeks now and reopen Chriland High School Ikeja without further delay," the statement signed by Chairpersons, Chrisland Schools Parents Teachers Association noted.
