Lagos Seals Private Schools For Flouting Covid-19 Lockdown
2 weeks ago Victor Adeola 0
The Lagos State government has sealed off no fewer than five private primary and secondary schools allegedly caught holding physical lessons within their premises with students on mufti.
Recall that the Federal and State Governments closed down all public and private schools at all levels nationwide as a way of curbing the spread of COVID-19 pandemic, which has led to the death of many people.
Recall also that in Lagos State, the Office of Education Quality Assurance under the state Ministry of Education vowed to heavily sanction any school found within the state disobeying the directive and because of this, has been going around the state monitoring the level of compliance, especially among the private schools.
The Director-General of the office, Mrs Abiola Seriki-Ayeni, who earlier gave the warning, confirmed the discovery of some schools defiant to the directive by the monitoring and investigations team from her office in the last two weeks.
