NANS urges South West governors to declare emergency on education
National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has called on the governors in the South West to declare a state of emergency on education in the geo-political zone.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the South West coordinator of NANS, Kowe Abiodun, made the call in a statement in Abeokuta yesterday.
Noting that education remained the bedrock of any nation’s development, Abiodun said that a state of emergency in the sector would go a long way in saving the future of the youths in the zone.
He stated that it was important for the governors to, as a matter of urgency and collective interest, convey a joint meeting to collectively x-ray the state of education in the region.
“NANS frowns at the state of education in the region and calls for immediate collective declaration of state of emergency by the governors of South West states,” he said.
He commended governors in the region for their recent joint efforts in fighting crime and putting an end to the alarming rate of kidnapping in the zone, through a well-structured joint security outfit, Amotekun, billed to take off on January 9, 2020.
The NANS coordinator also called on the governors to see the need to converge for a similar brainstorm to rescue the education sector in South West from the current situation.
He lauded the Federal Government’s effort so far in the education sector, urging the state governors to follow suit.
