Channels TV reports that the director-general, office of education quality assurance, Lagos state, Abiola Seriki-Ayeni, who led the monitoring and investigation team of the office, disclosed this during the second and third phase of the massive monitoring of private schools compliance to the directive to curb the spread of the virus.

“We want to make sure schools are closed; we also want to make sure schools are adhering to the closure directive since the number of COVID-19 infection cases has increased dramatically over time. On the field, we want to stay put to what we know is true and we want to consistently do it to students and school-based staff,” she added.
