NANS vows to occupy Nigeria next week over new petrol price

Students are warming up to stage a protest against the new pump price of petrol, as the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, on Thursday, said the over 40 million Nigerian students would next week re-enact the Occupy Nigeria protest against the removal of subsidy from petrol next week.

Confirming the development, the National President of NANS, Comrade Tijani Shehu, said in Abuja at a protest rally where the association called for the removal of the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu.

Shehu said NANS is already mobilizing students to resist the new N145 per litre pump price of the Premium Motor Spirit, PMS, otherwise called petrol.

“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, students in the country would occupy Nigeria. So the Federal Government should look into this before NANS mobilize the student populace to occupy Nigeria”, Shehu said.
