LASG Debunks Social Media Report on Third Term Resumption

The Lagos State Ministry of Education has debunked a social media report alleging that a decision had been purportedly reached with an unnamed “Honourable Commissioner for Basic Education” regarding a new set of guidelines for schools resumption in the State. A release issued today by Mr. Kayode Abayomi, Head of the Public Affairs Unit in the Ministry, refuted the claim that such a decision has been reached, insisting that the write-up did not emanate from the State Ministry of Education and should be disregarded. He pointed out that there is no designation as “Honourable Commissioner for Basic Education” in the Ministry as contained in the viral post, stressing that the issue of new guidelines for post-COVID-19 lockdown resumption is already under review by the State Government and will be circulated after its conclusion. Abayomi maintained that no School in the State is permitted to resume or re-open for Third Term Session till further directive to the contrary is issued by the State Government, despite the announcements on the gradual easing of existing lockdown in Lagos State and the re-opening of all government offices and establishments from Monday, 4th May, 2020.
