The National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, has warned the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU not to stop school resumption plan on January 18.

According to NANS' President Sunday Asefon, the Federal Government should think of another way of addressing the massive spread of the COVID-19 pandemic rather than stopping school resumption.

Asefon added that the National Association of Nigerian Students plans to set up " Students Task Force" to work against the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“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, " Asefon said.

Earlier the Minister of Education Adamu Adamu stated that school would be resuming on January 18.

Still, ASUU is warning all schools against reopening except the Federal Government has put necessary equipment to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
