As it stands Nigeria has recorded the total cases of 34,259 and 760 deaths caused by the COVID-19 pandemic
The groups, comprising the National Association of Polytechnic Students (NAPS), National Association of University Students (NAUS) and National Association of Colleges of Education Students (NANCES).
