The Senate of National Association of Nigerian Students, led by Abdulmajeed Oyeniyi has distanced itself from what he described as ‘politically motivated protest’ led by Danielson Bamidele, a factional NANS president.
According to Daily Trust, members of the Nigerian Labor Congress and the National Association of Nigerian Students had on Monday staged a protest in Abuja to demand increased funding for education.
“It is disheartening that some sponsored charlatans who are non-students went ahead to hold a protest in the name of students’ movement in Nigeria to discredit the effort of the federal government and shamelessly took side with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in the ongoing negotiations between the FG and ASUU with the consciousness that the union has continually used Nigerian students as a tool to pun in the negotiations with government,” he said.
