The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) and the Students Union Government (SUG) of the Kwara State University (KWASU) has called on the Executive Governor of the state, Abdulfatah Ahmed to reverse the decision on appointing an Acting Vice Chancellor for the institution.
It is recalled that on Tuesday, the governor appointed Prof. Kenneth Adeyemi as Acting VC of the university and directed the incumbent VC, Prof. Abdulrasheed Na’Allah, to hand over to the Acting VC and proceed on a terminal leave as his tenure expires in July 2019.
Addressing pressmen after a peaceful protest on the campus, the chairman of NANS, Kwara state chapter, Comrade Saheed Olosasa and the SUG President of the institution, Comrade Abdulganiyu Dikko, expressed dissatisfaction at the decision of the governor.
The duo asked Gov. Ahmed to explain why he took such decision within 24 hours or face more protest actions from them.
The students, who described the governor’s decision as illegal and manipulation of the education sector, called on stakeholders and well meaning Nigerians to stand against what they said was disregard for due process.
“We want to affirmatively state that we, the entire students, still recognize and further re-authenticate that Prof. Na’Allah is our VC and vehemently warn the government not to toy with our career,” the students’ leaders stated.
