The National Association of Nigerian Students, South-West Zone, has declared that it is prepared to hold the funeral for public education in Nigeria after President Mohammed Buhari is accused of burying it.
This information was provided in a statement released on Monday and signed by Adegboye Olatunji, the NANS Coordinator, and Awoyinfa Opeoluwa, the NANS Spokesperson.
The student body announced that they would be protesting once more in the upcoming days.
Part of the statement read: “It behoves 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.
“We want Nigerian students to be ready for a 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,” the statement concluded.
