National Association of University Students’ (NAUS), is the highest decision making body for students studying in institutions of higher learning, from the university cadre with over twenty (20) million members both in Nigeria and her Diaspora.
In Nigeria, the Federal Ministry of Education closed all tertiary, secondary and primary schools nationwide, over the outbreak of the COVID-19 in the country earlier in March, 2020. The indefinite closure is part of measures to contain the spread of the virus among school children.
However, the outbreak of COVID-19 has forced schools globally to switch to online learning, which is very difficult to practice in developing countries like Nigeria, where over Forty percent live on less than $1 a day, and only one in four have internet access.
