The Lagos State Government has lifted the restriction order on human and vehicular movement during the February monthly environmental sanitation exercise in order to allow students, invigilators and other stakeholders participate effectively in the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, organized by Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) expected to begin tomorrow.
Commissioner for the Environment, Dr. Babatunde Adejare who announced this in Alausa, Lagos, Southwest Nigeria, however, added that the usual sanitation exercise would still be observed by residents in their homes.
The Commissioner said that it became imperative for the state government to waive the restriction order not to jeopardize the future of the candidates whose counterparts in other parts of the federation will write the same examination.
“As a responsible and responsive government, we value the education of our children very dearly and therefore resolved to relax the order in the interest of the future leaders of tomorrow,” Adejare added.
