NANS mourns the death of 11 Unimad students who died by road accident | Jeremy spell blog

The National Association of Nigerian
Students (NANS) on Friday expressed
sadness over the death of 11 students
of University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID) in an
auto accident on Tuesday.
A total of 11 students of UNIMAID died in
the accident on Nov. 20 on their way
to Damaturu from Maiduguri following the
ASUU strike.
The National Public Relations Officer of
NANS, Mr Best Okereafor, gave the
condolence in a statement issued in Enugu
on Friday.
He stated 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 him, ASUU should not
politicise the industrial 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.”
