The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has demanded that President Muhammadu Buhari resigns due to what it called his anti-people policies.
NANS’ demand was in response to the recent hike in the pump price of petrol from N148 to N151.56k per litre by the Nigerian government.
Coordinator of NANS (Zone D), Kowe Odunayo Amos said the increment was deliberately intended to punish Nigerians, adding that Buhari’s government was anti-people.
He said in the statement that, “We find it most embarrassing to read of the increment in the price of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) to N163.
“No doubt, this government has worsened all the crises it has inherited from the last administration. In fact, the Buhari government is a clear example that we the students must go back to our revolutionary days as we cannot continue to lament.
“As an association, we hereby declare that the Buhari government should all resign or immediately do the following; reverse petrol price to N97, and stop deregulation of the Oil Sector. Stop the devaluation of the Naira now. Increase budgetary allocations to education to 35%. Return to the old stamp duty price now.”
Already, the new increased pump price has come into effect, as Nigerians groan as a result of increment in the prices of services and commodities.
