NANS Threatens Nationwide Shut Down Over School Fees Hike

The Federal and State Governments of Nigeria have been put on notice to either stop the increase in tuition fees in all tertiary institutions across the country or face the hardest-ever student uprising.

The declaration was made by the National President of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Usman Barambu while speaking at the 1st North-East Zonal Senate sitting of NANS held at the Abubakar Tatari Ali Polytechnic (ATAP), Bauchi.

Barambu said that the increase in tuition fees has negatively affected students particularly those who cannot comfortably afford it but managing and struggling to get to school.

He said that the tuition fees must be brought down to be commensurate with the present economic situation in the country, due to less money readily available it has become difficult for parents to raise the money now.

He further said that those who are supposed to raise voices against the planned increase are keeping quiet now because it is not in affecting them in anyway.

He stated that during the recent Naira notes crisis, some of the Governors rushed to the Supreme Court to halt its implementation and they won, now, there are moves to increase tuition fees but they are not talking because it does not affect them and their children are far away from the country.

He said that the plan was hatched with some ASUU collaborators, saying that the situation will be resisted by the entire students of the country who have been bashed and traumatised for a long time.

He then called on security agencies to advise the government on what to do in order to avert the dangers ahead if the tuition fees increase was implemented because according to him, a frustrated student who cannot afford to pay school fees can be a willing tool to be used as a bandit to get satisfaction.
