In the statement, the students’ body urged the Federal Government to rejig its basic COVID guidelines for schools resumption rather than shift resumption.

The body also directed its chapters in all tertiary institutions to set up COVID-19 task force teams to enforce all guidelines outlined by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 and ensure safe reopening of schools.
