Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, said on Thursday the state government would take the decision on the reopening of schools in two weeks.

The governor, who disclosed this during a press briefing at the Government House, Marina, said the decision would be taken after an extensive meeting with stakeholders in the education sector.

He said: “I know we are all eager to know the plans we have for the reopening of our learning institutions. There is still a lot more works to be done in this regard and we are looking at the educational sector very differently.
