This choice was taken at the end of a virtual conference the other day where the leaders of the National Association of College Student (NAUS), National Association of Polytechnic Trainees (NAPS), and National Association of College of Education Trainees (NANCES), were in presence.
The trainee leaders stated they would assemble at the Federal Ministry of Education, Abuja, while state planners would march to the Nigeria Union of Reporters (NUJ) secretariats in their different states.
NANCES president, Mahmud Abubakar, informed The Guardian:“The agitation is still one, which is the re-opening of our campuses. We just want to hear from the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, the date for resumption, as we are more open to the deadly coronavirus at home than on campus, and an idle mind is the devil’s workshop.”
On his part, NAPS president, Sunday Asuku, stated the demonstration would be serene which security firms and the International Human Being Right Commission (IHRC) had actually been alerted.
” It is so frustrating, terrible and dishonest understanding that our federal government does not position concern on education. All of us understand that COVID-19 is genuine, however incredibly overplayed in Nigeria. Our organizations have actually been put under lock and secret for excellent 6 months with the claim of avoiding the spread of COVID-19 on schools. As much as we value the federal government for the well-known love, we condemn in totality the continued closure of our organizations.
“We understand that COVID-19 couldn’t halt the electoral process in Edo and Ondo states, even with the multitude coverging during rallies. We are tired of guidelines; reopen our school now,” Asuku specified.
