As part of his efforts to further curtail the communal spread of Covid-19 in the State, a member in the Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon. Gbolahan Yishawu representing Eti-Osa constituency 02 has distributed sanitisers to SS3 students in four schools.
Yishawu, who gave the sanitisers to the exit classes who resumed earlier this week, explained that it is expedient to ensure the safety of the students amid COVID-19 pandemic.
“The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) said to curtail this virus, facemask, constant washing and sanitizing of hands are very important, this made us to give out sanitizers to our students who are about to write their public examinations”, he said.
Yishawu, the Chairman House Committee on Budget and Economic Planning who appreciated the effort of government in preventing the spread of the virus, urged both the students and teachers to strictly adhere to Covid-19 guidelines.
The schools that received the sanitisers include: Akande Dahunsi senior high school in Osborn, Ilado senior high school, and Girls secondary school, Keffi.
In her response, the Principal of Ilado senior high school, Mrs. Ajiboye O. O appreciated the kind gesture of Yishawu, saying the sanitisers came at the right time.
“We appreciate Hon. Yishawu for the distribution of sanitisers. The 10 liters of sanitiser that I bought, we have used 3liters but when he called me that he wants to give us sanitiser I was so happy. Also, since Monday, Yishawu has been conveying our SS3 students from various designated areas to their schools”, she said.
Yishawu’s school bus usually conveys students going to Osborne from Ojo street in Obalende (6:30-7:00), then moves to Mopol 2 barracks, to Dodan barracks, then from the Local Government Council,. Straight to Osborne where 11 schools…both juniors & seniors are situated.
