TERTIARY INSTITUTION STUDENTS PROTEST, ASK FG TO REOPEN SCHOOL.
The students of tertiary institution on Wednesday had a peaceful protest in Abuja urging the FG to reopen schools that were shutdown since march.
The protest was held both at the Unity Fountain and at the Ministry of Education , both in the Federal Capital Territory .
The President of the National Association of University Students , Ejigah Felix , who spoke on behalf of his colleagues , said
“schools had been closed for too long and it was wrong for political campaigns to be allowed while schools remained closed .“How do you close our universities , polytechnics and other academic institutions and you are telling people that you want to stop the virus? Our demands are that our schools should be reopened .
“Every time that government has issue with ASUU , it is the students that are at the receiving end . Everybody who is in school for a four -year programme ends up spending six or more years which is not fair.
The government should stop putting our generation at risk, students are wasting almost one year at home and this is not good at all for Nigerian students.
I believe the same guidelines that was set aside for reopening of churches and markets or even bars should also be put in place so school can resume.
What do you think?
