In lieu of the recent reports about the increasing spate of Sex for marks in some Nigerian tertiary institutions, the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has come out to openly warn all lecturers who are involved in the dirty business of sex-for-marks to completely desist from their nefarious activities or be ready to be publicly disgraced and exposed.
Mr. Usman Barambu who is actually the President of NANS had already made this call while he had been addressing a press conference on Monday in Abuja.
Barambu had also called on the Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari to as a matter of urgency resolve the lingering Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike by personally brokering a meeting with the union.
He said the call became imperative after exhaustive deliberations and depositions on the state of the nation, State of Campuses and the lingering dispute between ASUU and the federal government which has affected the academic calendar of all public universities for the past seven months.
He said, “NANS calls on lecturers involved in the business of Sex for Marks to desist from their nefarious activities and repent without further delay as Nigerian students would not hesitate to expose them and make them face the full wrath of the law.”
Barambu added, “NANS also calls on President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR to as a matter of urgency use his fatherly intervention to resolve the lingering ASUU strike by personally brokering a meeting with ASUU.
In another report, the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has knocked and has discouraged the state universities to desist from any notion that could lead to the state institute joining the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU in other ongoing industrial actions.
In order to do this, the leadership of the Nigerian students’ union requested state university instructors to immediately distance themselves from the action and return to work, describing their behavior as ‘unpatriotic and wicked.’
In a statement in this regard issued yesterday, Sunday Asefon, president of NANS, claimed that ASUU had lost the trust of Nigerian students due to their unpatriotic behavior in extending their walkout indefinitely.
Asefon indicated that because the union was acting unfairly, students would no longer back its plea for mediation.
