The Nigerian Association of Proprietors of Private Schools (NAPPS) has assured parents and guardians of the safety of their children and wards as schools resume for the second term of the 2020/2021 session in Lagos State.

Chairman of Amuwo-Odofin Chapter of NAPPS, Mrs Ajoke Adeyemi, gave the assurance in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Lagos.

She said that the private schools had kept to the COVID-19 prevention protocols and guidelines to guard both the staff and students against contracting the virus.

“All the measures taken during the first wave are still in place and I don’t see any reasons for worries.

“We also engaged the services of government-approved environmental pest control organisations last weekend, to fumigate all our schools in Amuwo-Odofin.

“The Lagos State Quality Assurance team always go on random checks to ensure school owners comply, and they advise where necessary. The fear that they can come unannounced keeps us on our toes,” she added.
