In the communique signed by the zone c executive members of the drafting committee, Kayode Adebayo and Muhammed Saba, the students also called on the governments at all levels to better fund security both in the north-central and the nation at large
The communique partly read, “The Congress affirmed its commitment, and dedication to the struggle of NANS against all forms of oppression against students in our campuses and called on the Federal Government to immediately honour the agreement with ASUU and pay the lecturers appropriately and in due course to avoid other actions that will be taken by ASUU that will put academic activities in quagmire.”
The congress in the communique also appreciated the commitment of stakeholders and leaders in zone c for always fighting for the rights and welfare of the students and also for the continued support enjoyed by its executives.
