Nigerian Students Begin Online Protest with Hashtag "Save Nigerian Students"

Following the bleak fate facing students in Nigeria occasioned by the closure of academic institutions, the students have taken to the social media and online platforms to start a campaign against what they termed the continued closure of their future.

Recall that on the emergence of the Covid-19 Pandemic, the federal government had told students that the closure of schools would last for a month only. No student had the slightest idea that he or she would remain at home for five good months and counting. We never prepared for stuck a long unexpected holiday.

Since that March, the Federal Government and ministry of education has shown a nonchalant attitude towards the plight of students as they keep giving guidelines and yet postponing the resumption of schools even after reopening major economic and crowd pulling centers such as markets, interstate transit etc.

Sensing the insensitivity of the government towards their future, the students have decided to play the only known Music that the government listens to and understand which is protests.

Nigerian Students are encouraged to participate in this online campaign to attract the attention of the Federal Government and ministry of education to recind their decision to waste entire academic year which in all sense of reasoning is not in the interest of the Nigerian Students.

Below is a screenshot of the post made by the Director of information of one of the Polytechnics in Nigeria urging students to join the campaign and share to others.
