Lagos Parents Kick against Reopening of Schools

Some parents in Lagos State have opposed the reopening of schools in Lagos State.

The reactions of the parents were contained in the reports released by the News Agency of Nigeria on Friday May 29, 2020.

Reacting to the news, the parents stated that both the federal and state governments should continue to safeguard children from the pandemic.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Federal Government had said it was considering adopting morning and afternoon shifts of classes for the reopening of schools.

One of the parents, Mrs Ayobami Ojo, advised that the government should allow children to remain at home until the pandemic is fully contained.

“There is no need for morning and evening classes. Let the children continue to stay safe at home as the virus is increasing every day.

“Children will naturally not be as cautious as adults and schools cannot be compared to markets. Reopening of schools should be considered when confirmed cases drop very well,” Ojo said.

Another parent, Mrs Abiodun Aina, stated that the government should prioritise the lives of the children.

She added that the students should not be exposed to danger.

“It is difficult to control adults, let alone children, we should not risk the lives of children. A two-shift option for classes may not stop the spread of the virus. It is better for them to remain at home until COVID -19 subsides or a vaccine is found,” she said.

“Nigerians should stop putting pressure on government to reopen schools. Why are we in a rush? We need to be patient,” Aina added.
