Students of the Nigerian tertiary institutions have decided to protest if the Federal government doesn’t announce the date for school resumption in all institutions of learning within the next 2 weeks.
All Nigerian students have been at home since March after schools were shut down regarding the Covid-19 outbreak.
The students under the umbrella of the National Association of Polytechnic Students (NAPS), National Association of University Students (NAUS), and National Association of Colleges of Education Students (NANCES), at a virtual meeting, decried Federal Government’s approach towards the resumption of learning institutions in the country.
They condemned the FG’s decision to cancel the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASCCE).
‘Huge funds have been used to contain the spread of the virus, but we still have poorly equipped medical centers across the country” they said
The students also urged the Federal government to stop salaries of university teachers and other officials for advocating the continued closure of schools without proffering solutions to the Covid-19 pandemic.
