Students under the aegis of the National Association of Nigerian Students are demanding the reopening of Tertiary Institutions.

The Federal Government had on March 19 ordered the closure of all higher institutions in the country as precautionary measures to curb the COVID-19 pandemic.

But taking to Abuja, the nation’s capital on Wednesday, the students carried placards, registering their displeasure over the continued closure of schools.

They argued that if the government can reopen major markets, some relaxation centres, religious centres, schools also should be reopened so as not to truncate the future of the Nigerian students.
