Consider Vaccination of Students First, NANS Urges FG




The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Zone D, received with delight, the new of the arrival of about 4 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine into the country on Tuesday, march 2, 2021. 


Meanwhile, as the vaccination campaign and administration in Nigeria begin, it is imperative to make a passionate plea to the Federal Government, on behalf of the entire Nigerian students, that the students should be considered first in the administration of the vaccine. 


In particular, as the States Governors are warming up to receive their shares of the vaccine, NANS (Zone D), is requesting that the governors of the South/West should place premium on the students at all levels in the administration of the vaccine.


The need to start the vaccination with the students is imperative because Nigerian students constitute the largest assemblage among whom the virus can easily spread, thus, the vaccine must be administered on them first in order to contain the spread of the dreaded virus. 


We are urging our governors in the South/West States, to put some compelling measures in place in our Primary Health Care centres, higher institutions and schools and other prospective designated centres to ensure that students are given priority in the administration of the vaccine.


While we are congratulating the government on the arrival of the vaccine, we want to pledge our support in terms of campaign for the vaccination which will help to contain the spread of the virus.


Aluta Continua, Victoria Ascerta.


Signed:

Kowe Odunayo Amos.
