COVID 19 has come to stay with us, whether we agree or not,there is cure or there is going to be cure to it like Malaria, all we need from the Federal Government is to stop partaking in the global politics and come out with a specific date for Schools’ Reopening, FG has given a guidelines on schools’ reopening and everybody is ready to adhere strictly with the guidelines, we have seen some Polytechnics that have displayed their readiness.
Federal Ministry of Education should wake up to the task on provision of preventive measure materials across the tertiary institutions in Nigeria.
If ASUP is not ready to go back to Class, their Salary should be stopped henceforth, no work no pay, but if the Federal Government refuses to give a specific date between now and next 14 days, the entire Polytechnic Students across the country will not hesitate to mobilize in millions across the streets in Nigeria, we are ready to stop the economic activities of the Country”.
