By Winifred Ogbebo ,Abuja
The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has criticised the government for not taken any drastic measure on the University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID).

The association said they have not shown action in securing lives and property .

In a State of the Nation address to journalists yesterday in Abuja, the NANS president, Mr Chinonso Obasi ,said ‎the remaining Chibok girls still in terrorists’ captivity are also part of Nigerian students.

According to him,  it is unfortunate that the government has not taken any drastic measure on UNIMAID.

He said, “They have not shown action in securing lives and property. The government only sends condolences. NANS is about to take a decision and it is a decision that will not favour the government.”

Obasi, said NANS had raised a committee on the northeast which was discreetly making investigation into the bombings.

“We have a committee which we constituted on the northeast but we did not bother to make it open. We do not want it public so that those against the interests of Nigerian students will not truncate our decisions. We have also encouraged our students to be vigilant. We have carried out some safety measures lectures. We do not depend on the government, but we can tell the government what we want.”

According to the  NANS president,  the association had exposed some vice chancellors who mismanaged the funds allocated to their universities even as they lent support to the anti-corruption campaign of the federal government.
