The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has told President Muhammadu Buhari’s government to reverse the increment in pump price of petrol or face mass protest by the students.
The association said it received with shock the news of another increment in the pump price of premium motor spirit from N145 to N161.
NANS vice president, Comrade Ojo Raymond said in a statement that the newly announced pump price is ridiculous, harsh, provocative and anti people. “Nigerian students unequivocally reject the increment as it will no doubt worsen the economic life, business growth and social balance of individuals and families”.
“Unfortunately, in the last one week, Nigerians had noticed the emerging provocative socio-economic policies of the PMB led administration which increased cost of virtually all essential services. Nigerians are particularly not happy over increment in electricity tariff, cable subscription and the latest pump price”.
Meanwhile, the National Association of Nigeria Colleges of Education Students (NANCES) has lamented the continuous neglect of Nigerian Colleges of Education sub sector.
