The Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, on Thursday, May 12, has said that over 40 million Nigerian students would re-enact the Occupy Nigeria protest against the removal of subsidy from petroleum product next week.
According to the National president of the association, Comrade Tijani Shehu, NANS is already mobilizing Nigerian students to resist the new N145 per litre pump price of the Premium Motor Spirit, PMS.
Today.ng reported that Shehu confirmed these plans during a protest rally where the association was calling for the removal of the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu.
Shehu said, “a directive has been issued to all tertiary institutions to shut down all campuses on Tuesday and Wednesday, next week. After that, they will all converge on Abuja for a mass protest.
”On behalf of NANS and the whole 40.1 million Nigeria students, we condemn the new fuel price and by Tuesday or Wednesday, the whole Nigeria student would occupy Nigeria.
So the Federal Government should look into this before NANS mobilize the entire Nigeria students to occupy Nigeria”.
