National Association of Nigeria Students (NANS) Frown At The Stringent Conditions On Nigerian Students
It is sad to note that the Nigerian state appeared to have entrenched laissez-faire style of leadership concerning the educational system in our dear country.
Ironically, the existence of the Nigerian Educational System is threatened by the improvidence of the Federal Government of Nigeria at the detriment of Nigerian Students who are currently undergoing the pains and suffering the “seat at home” syndrome owing to what can best be described as “Father Christmas Strike” by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
The Government has failed to be proactive in addressing the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and Memorandum of Action (MOA) that was reached between both parties.
Since the existence of the said MOU, the Government has failed ab initio in terms of consensus ad idem (meeting of the minds) with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), thereby putting Nigerian Students in tight conditions with no option than to go on a peaceful protest on the 28th of February, 2022, at 10.00am prompt.
Hence, the JCC Chairmen of Cross River and Akwa Ibom State respectively should take note of the stipulated date and time of the said protest and liasse with the various Union leaders for an effective mass protest.
As a National Executive Member residing in calabar, I wish to announce to us that, Universities gates should be closed, Calabar highway and Goodluck Jonathan bypass should be blocked.
National Association of Nigeria Students (NANS) frown at the stringent conditions on Nigerian Students and vie w this move by the Federal Government as a deliberate attempt to shrink the Educational system of this country at the detriment of Nigerian Students in light of their children studying abroad and enjoying quality Education. Therefore, we are calling on all meaningful Nigerian Students to storm the streets in line with the above directive.
UNTIL OUR VOICES ARE HEARD, WE WON’T STOP!
NANS Ex-officio-1 National.
