The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) yesterday said they would fight and frustrate any attempt by politicians to disintegrate Nigeria.
The students made this known in a statement by the general secretary of the association of Zone A, Dominic Philip, saying it was time for Nigerian politicians to stop playing politics with the peace and continuous existence of the country.
“The security challenges facing the country, which claimed the lives of our colleagues and lecturers, forced us to call on Nigerian politicians and leaders to stop playing politics with the peace of the country and the lives of innocent Nigerians. The unity of our dear nation is very paramount to us and we will not fold our arms to face the shameful disintegration of Nigeria in our time.
“The project Nigeria is bigger than any interest or group. I, on behalf of over 10 million students from the zone, make a passionate appeal to the government and perpetrators of these acts to embrace dialogue and put an end to the wanton destruction of lives and properties of innocent Nigerians as we are ready to frustrate any attempt to disintegrate Nigeria,” Philip said.
The association called on the National Examination Council (NECO) to make special provision for the students that had one problem or the other as a result of the crisis that engulfed Kaduna State recently.
