They cited the high cost of foreign currencies, educational materials, tuition fees, transportation, and feeding, which has made life almost unbearable for them and other Nigerians.
The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has raised concerns about the increasing cost of goods and services in the country under the leadership of President Bola Tinubu. The students' body expressed disappointment with the economic hardship faced by students and Nigerians in general.
In a statement signed by the association's Senate President, Babatunde Akinteye, NANS highlighted the detrimental impact of galloping inflation on their studies, ambitions, and education in general. They cited the high cost of foreign currencies, educational materials, tuition fees, transportation, and feeding, which has made life almost unbearable for them and other Nigerians.
NANS urged President Tinubu and the Central Bank of Nigeria to urgently address the economic challenges and stabilize the Naira's value. They called for the implementation of policies and programs to halt inflation and boost the economy, emphasizing the need for immediate palliatives to alleviate their suffering.
The students warned that if the economic hardship persists, they may be forced to take to the streets in mass nationwide protests to demand action from the government. They emphasized the importance of addressing their welfare concerns promptly to prevent escalating tensions.
