NANS Gives Fayose 72-Hour Ultimatum To Re-Open EKSU

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) South West Zone D, has told  Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State to reopen the Ekiti State University (EKSU) or face mass action.

This was contained in a statement by NANS South West zone on Wednesday where they gave the state government 72 hours to heed to demands by workers of the institution.

According to them, failure to do that would “cause the students in Ekiti State to embark on mass action.”

They noted that with the recent development, it “will automatically become impossible for them [students] to participate in the NYSC mobilisation process.”

In addition, NANS demanded a reduction in school fees in the state-owned tertiary institutions namely EKSU, College of Education, Ikere Ekiti and College of Health Technology, Ijero-Ekiti.

“An acceptance fee is a fraud. We are against N50,000 and N100,000 acceptance fees in EKSU; N50,000 in College of Health Technology, Ijero and N35,000 in College of Education, Ikere-Ekiti,” NANS added.

“Acceptance fee is against the masses. We also demand immediate resumption of academic activities in our striking institutions in Ekiti State.”
