NAUS threatens a nationwide protest on 19th August 2020

The senior personnel of the National Association of University Students, NAUS, National Association of Polytechnic Students (NAPS), and National Association of College of Education Students (NANCES) have declared a nationwide protest tomorrow.

However, the Protest holds on the 19th of August 2020 as the two weeks of grace given to the Federal Government to reopen campuses for academic activities has elapsed.

This decision was taken at the end of a virtual meeting yesterday where the leaders of the National Association of University Students (NAUS), National Association of Polytechnic Students (NAPS), and National Association of College of Education Students (NANCES), were in attendance.

NANCES president, Mahmud Abubakar, told 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, said the protest would be peaceful and that security agencies and the International Human Right Commission (IHRC) had been notified.
