NANS Urges ASUU Against Stopping Resumption Of Universities

The National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, has urged the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, against stopping the resumption of Universities.

ASUU had said that universities are not prepared and equipped to follow the covidCOV protocols given by health authorities.

However, the President of NANS, Sunday Asefon, said that a committee will soon be set up on COVID-19 to enable universities to comply with COVID-19 protocols.

According to Asefon: “Rather than postpone schools’ resumption, it has become imperative to address the alarming spread of COVID-19 and rising cases of deaths from a position of environmental strategy and human coordination since the lockdown mechanism can no longer be a mitigating option in the face of our economic reality.

“Consequently, the National Association of Nigerian Students is undertaking to prevail on students union bodies to set up Students Task Force Against COVID-19 in every school, while asking the Federal Government to rejig its basic COVID guidelines for schools resumption.”
