Speaking at the exercise, the Chairman of LASUBEB, Mr. Wahab Alawiye-King, implored parents to ensure that their wards use the radios as intended by the Board, saying the gadgets are primarily meant for the pupils to participate in Interactive Radio sessions while schools remain closed due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
