By now, it’s no longer news that Schools have shut down in all states in the country, in order to contain the spread of Coronavirus.
But Lagos and Ogun states are not letting this affect the education or continuous learning of kids and pupils under their watch.
Here is how Lagos is going about it – focus on SSS3 students
The Deputy Governor of the State, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat announced on his Twitter yesterday, March 26, 2020 that tutorials will be available on radio and TV for SSS3 students who will be writing their school-leaving exams soon.
“While our wards stay at home and observe social distancing, the state ministry of education in partnership with radio and TV broadcasters has made provision for tutorial sessions in line with ensuring our current set of SS3 pupils excel at their federal exams,” his tweet reads.
