You can’t expel 4000 students, they did not commit any crime – NANS tells UNIOSUN


– The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has waded into the crisis in the Osun state university

– The university authority has threatened to rusticate 4410 students who could not pay their schools as deadline expires on Tuesday February 28

– The university has accused the students of using the school fees on the ponzi scheme MMM

Following the threat by management of the Osun State University to expel over 4000 students who could not pay their school fees on the allegation that some might have spent the fees on the ponzi scheme, MMM, the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has waded in.

NANS, a body that protects the welfare of higher institution students nationwide, has rejected the move by the university authority to rusticate the 4410 students who failed to meet the deadline for the school fees payment.

Daily Trust reports that the National Vice President, Afolabi Aguda, said the threat was not acceptable due to the economic situation in the country.

Afolabi spoke to journalists in Osogbo during organized by NANS to drive home the desire of the body and find a meeting point between the students and the university authority.

He said NANS would seek a way out to handle the issue rather than rusticate the students who have not committed any criminal offence against the management of the school.

He condemned the manner in which some policemen shot two students of the university recently over an allegation of internet fraud also known as Yahoo-Yahoo, lamenting that similar thing occurs often in many campuses across the country.

Afolabi said: “In democratic setting, police should comply with the law and respect human rights. If the killings, harassment and extortion by police persist, Nigerian students would storm the headquarters of the Nigeria Police Force in a massive protest and occupy that office.”​
