1 min



Weetalknaija Daily Post can authoritavely report that, there’s an excitement amongst the pupils as schools resume in Lagos State.

As resumption of primary schools across Lagos State enters the second for the new session, Dr Ganiyu Sopeyin, the Chairman, Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board has debunked as a piece of false news the purported change in resumption.

Addressing school children and the SUBEB monitoring team, Sopeyin who spoke through the board secretary, Mrs Foluso Ajimoti commended the large turnout of pupils, teachers and head tutors in some of the schools visited.

He said, “We are aware that the reason some parents have not released their children for school is as a result of an unconfirmed report that there is a change in the September 9 resumption date. I must stress that this is not true as academic work has already started across our schools.”

The chairman commended the headteacher, staff and pupils of St. Francis Nursery School, Maryland, and other schools that started academic work on the first day of resumption.

Daily Independent surveillance of some schools in the mainland area of the showed that attendance was still low as some of the pupils are yet to resume.

At the bishop Adegboyega Nursery and Primary School, Ketu Daily Independent observed rehabilitation work at the school that had no roof and windows for the greater part of the last term.

Though workmen at the school refused to grant, the roof of the building now wears new blue zinc just as the iron windows were also being replaced.

However, a stakeholder at the school appealed to the SUBEB to complete the work by erecting perimeter fence at the school, saying that the footpath that leads to MKO Abiola Garden end of the Tollgate/Alapere road served as the access point in and out of the school.

Recall that the entire rooftop of the school’s two-storey building and a block of six classrooms were left uncovered by unknown hoodlums that removed the zinc, window, doors, gates and books.
