The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) after multiple protest and effort to put an end to the ongoing Asuu strike has finally come with an idea to solicit for financial assistance from Nigerian Presidential aspirants.
This was made known by a statement signed by the Chairman of NANS, Ogun State Joint Campus Committee,JCC, Comrade Kehinde Damilola Simeon.
The statement reads:
“All the Presidential aspirants, especially those from the ruling APC and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) must rise up and come to the rescue of Nigerian Students.
“If truly the aspirants mean well for Nigerians as they are claiming and if they have the love of Nigerian students at heart, they should raise the fund to meet the demands of ASUU, since the Federal government has failed woefully in its commitment to improving the education sector.
“Today in Nigeria both university and polytechnic education is paralysed due to the ongoing strike actions by both members of ASUU and ASUP. It is very unfortunate and unacceptable.
“Nigerian students hereby call on the presidential aspirant, in the spirit of patriotism and in the interest of development to rally round Nigerian students.
“All of these aspirants paid huge amount of money to procure their nomination forms, so donating funds to rescue the tertiary education in Nigeria should not be too difficult for them.
“It is only by doing this, that Nigerian students and Nigerians in general will respect and show support for their ambitions”.
