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), held a virtual meeting, where they decried Federal Government’s approach towards resumption of learning institutions in the country.
They also condemned the decision of FG to cancel the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASCCE).
According to the students, while observing social distancing and other safety protocols, WASSCE can be written, so there was no point cancelling it.
According to them, it is unlikely that Coronavirus may be eradicated in two weeks and after months of observing safety measures, there was no change in cases recorded.
Nigerian 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.
