ASUU STRIKE: NANS Mourns as 11 UNIMAID Students Die in Auto Crash

 

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) on Friday were thrown into bereavement over the death of 11 students of the University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID) in an auto crash on Tuesday.

A total number of 11 students of UNIMAID met their death in the accident on November 20 on their way to Damaturu from Maiduguri sequel to the ASUU strike.

Mr Best Okereafor, The National Public Relations Officer of NANS, gave the condolence statement issued in Enugu on Friday.

He detailed that “NANS mourns the fallen Nigerian students and in same vain attribute the demise to the ongoing Academic Staff Unions of Universities (ASUU) strike.

“NANS believes that if the strike was not ongoing; the students would have been in school, studying.

“NANS is calling on the Federal Government to save our future and consider the souls of these fallen innocent Nigerian students often told that they are the leaders of tomorrow. Can we lead in grave?

“In as much as we believe in the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration, NANS is on this sad note, calling on Federal Government to make students happy by meeting the demands of the striking ASUU and Colleges of Education lecturers without further delay.”

According to Spokesman, ASUU should not politicise the strike action but consider the lives of Nigerian students by shifting grounds.

“We appreciate the ASUU agitations as some are students oriented and we are part of the struggle as we are most affected as well.”
