Nigerian students in tertiary institutions have threatened to stage a protest if the Federal Government fails to announce a date for resumption of academic activities in all institutions of learning within the next two weeks.

The students have been at home since March when schools were shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The students under the aegis 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 resumption of learning institutions in the country.

They condemned the Federal government’s decision to cancel the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASCCE). According to the students, WASSCE can be written while observing social distancing and other safety protocols.?

“It is hardly feasible that coronavirus may be eradicated in a fortnight and after months of observing several safety measures, there are little or no gains in the results so far recorded.

‘Huge funds have been used to contain the spread of the virus, but we still have poorly equipped medical centres across the country” they said

The students 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.
