In Lagos State, all eyes are on senior secondary school 3 students who are now going to school just like their mates elsewhere across the country.
But teachers in the state are demanding life insurance cover to handle the over 60,000 final year students who will resume amidst CCOVID-19 fears.
Lagos is the epicenter of COVID-19 in the country.
The state has lost more people to the virus and has expended more money than others in combating the epidemic.
But amidst this crisis is the reopening of schools strictly for SS3 students to enable them to prepare for the 2020
school-based West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) being
conducted by the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) and billed to begin on August 17.

WASSCE result for holders is vital in securing admission into tertiary institutions globally.
And admissions are already ongoing in the country.
This situation has given reason for senior secondary school students in the terminal class
to go back to school and do two weeks of revision before writing
the examination, which marks the end of secondary education.
