In light of President Mohammed Buhari’s alleged burying of public education in Nigeria, the National Association of Nigerian Students, South-West Zone, has declared that it is ready to hold the funeral for the public education sector of the country
Adegboye Olatunji and Awoyinfa Opeoluwa, the coordinator and spokeswoman for NANS, jointly signed a statement on Monday announcing that they would be flooding the street in protest soon.
“It behooves us to call the attention of the general public and the international community on the brazen insult meted on the Nigerian students by the irresponsible administration of Buhari.” – The group stated
“We want Nigerian students to be ready for grand mass action on the ASUU strike. We are clear that this government is anti-public education and this is against the yearnings of millions of students and youths”
“In coming days, we shall be occupying the streets across the South-West region to conduct a final burial rite of public education in the country as this is what the Buhari’s administration represents.”
This comes after a few weeks ago when students protest at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport and disrupted flight schedules in response to the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, NANS had threatened to close the airport (ASUU).
