Association Of Students In Nigeria Give FG two weeks to announce schools resumption date

In what they viewed as the inadequate management of reopening schools by the federal government, high school students gave the government two weeks to set a deadline for reopening. 

They vowed to protest against continued closing of schools if the government refused to meet within 14 days with their demands. 

At a virtual meeting, the groups, consisting of the National Association of Polytechnic Students (NAPS), the National Association of University Students (NAUS) and the National Association of Colleges of Educational Students (NANCES), declared the approach of the Federal Government to resuming the country's educational institutions.

They also faulted the government's decision to withdraw from the WASCCE (West African Senior School Certificate Examination) 2020. 

Urging Education Minister Mallam Adamu Adamu to reconsider Nigerian students ' participation in the terminal examination, they said WAEC could be taken while observing social distancing and other safety protocols.

They also charged the government with halting the wages of university teachers and other officials for supporting the continued closing of schools without providing solutions to the COVID-19 pandemic.
