NANS Threatens To Shut Down Nigeria Over FG’s Planned Subsidy Removal

NANS Threatens To Shut Down Nigeria Over FG’s Planned Subsidy Removal

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has reportedly vowed to shutdown the country, if the federal government remove the fuel subsidies in 2022, Newspremises reports.

Recall that the National Labour Congress(NLC) had earlier rejected the alleged plans by the federal to remove the fuel subsidies, NANS on Friday, also kicked against the fuel subsidies removal.

Malam Mele Kyari, the Group Managing Director, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), had announced that petrol could increase to N340 from February 2022.

NANS threatened that Nigeria will be shut down if the federal government attempts the removal of fuel subsidy and an increase in the price of fuel.

NANS in a statement signed by its President, Asefon Sunday noted that Nigerians are presently suffering; therefore any attempt to aggravate the social woes and economic manacles that are already faced will not only be reckless but amount to testing the patience of Nigerians too far.

The statement read, “Let’s first of all categorically state that on behalf of the suffering millions of Nigerian Students; and on behalf of the millions of the frustrated masses of the Nigerian people who are our parents; brothers and sisters; uncles and aunts; friends and neighbours, we reject this socioeconomic evil proposal and we shall resist it. Nigerians are really suffering. We are in dire socioeconomic straits. We are weeping in our hearts and souls. We are dying in silence. We feel the agony and anguish because we are practically involved.

“We wish to warn against it. The country is very stretched and tense. In case the government is not aware, we are passing them this intelligence free of charge now. Again we advise, let the government not stretch it further. The consequences will be dire. The people are already flamed. Mendacity will beget mendacity.”

“NANS is happy that the organised labour and civil society groups have all rejected the proposal. We shall ensure that the entire country is shut down and paralysed should the Federal Government proceed with its insensitive plan of deregulation or even any further increase in the pump price of fuel. We have had enough.”

NANS noted that deregulation cannot change anything in the country except the practical reality of the socio-economic condition of Nigerians changes.

“No deregulation can happen on the basis of import-driven deregulation. We are aware of our reality with all the ones already deregulated, including Kerosene, diesel and cooking gas (which price has gone totally out of control).

“May we remind the Federal Government that NANS is not totally against deregulation. But they were conditions already agreed upon before any talk about deregulation can start. And none of those conditions are in place at the moment.”

They described the intending plan by the government as very strange especially at a time when no refinery is functioning in the country insinuating that the sinister plan is outright the quest of the government to get money at all costs to squander and finance the ostentatious lifestyles of public officers and senior civil servants.

“The four (4) refineries are not functioning, and if they are functioning at all, it is at a near-zero level. There is zero consultation with stakeholders to even consider issues around deregulation and why it should or should not be. The survival of Nigerian workers and their wards is yet to be discussed, yet a date that may take lives out of them has been fixed.

“It’s really sad that the government can contemplate something as critical as deregulating the petroleum sector without thinking it through, without consultation and without a robust debate.”

NANS demanded that the Federal Government rescind the plan to remove fuel subsidy till adequate arrangements like refining at home and utilising our petrochemical by-products are made.

“Then, after that, there will be a robust discussion by all stakeholders to deal with associated socioeconomic issues and discuss the details of the new regime. It is only on this condition that there can be a corresponding social equilibrium, economic prosperity, job and wealth creation for Nigerians,” the statement read.

NANS in conclusion admonished all comrades, allies, and structures of NANS to be on the alert and not be swayed or distracted.

Experts seek improved funding of  monotechnic, Polytechnic libraries

Holds conference in Ekiti

Federal and State Governments have been charged to devote more money to  E-libraries of tertiary institutions across the country so as to enhance research work and inculcate reading culture in students.

This is the suggestion of some Liberians during a meeting of committee of Monotechnic  and Polytechnic librarians in Nigeria  held at the  Federal Polytechnic, Ado Ekiti.

Speaking at the meeting, the Chairman of the group, Dr Chris Enyia explained that e- library would give room for in-depth research work that would address some of the challenges facing the nation and reduce stress often experienced to solve some academic problems.

THE ALARMING STATE OF EDUCATION IN OGUN — Segun Showunmi

Dear Gov Dapo Abiodun, I trust you are well, there is a time for anyone in charge of any establishment, let alone a state, to read the riot act to parents, the school authorities, and the students! That time is now in Ogun, education is mouthed-ly our legacy, I have observed for some times that we have ebbed really low compared to states that do not have our known history in education, a comprehensive peer-review will help you see just how far behind in new investments in education we have gone, no pun intended as such, I hope you order the review to help give you an idea of the urgency.

I have watched hopelessly as unacceptable stories have emanated from our schools, primary school children behaving in the most delinquent manners, that cannot be a reflection of who we are or how we plan to groom the next generation, now it seems the situation has gone worse as now the madness going on has been weaponized and according to reports and images uniformed law enforcement officers as ranking as a divisional police office now get stabbed and butchered.

That must be a last straw for what type of citizens can anyone hope such youths will grow up to become and what type of danger would that be in future. A stitch in time will prevent the garment from becoming rags! Do something urgently and fast too. Whatever you desire to do must be such that no one is left in doubt that this madness must stop immediately.
