The National Association of Nigerian Students (Zone D) on Friday said it has commenced mobilization of students for a mass action next Tuesday to reject the anti-people policies of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s government.
Kowe Odunayo Amos, Coordinator of NANS (Zone D), in a statement described the increase in stamp duty cost, PMS, electricity tariff, and others as punishment to Nigerians given the prevailing economic hardship in the country due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
He said, “Sequel to the press statement of NANS Zone D on Wednesday, 2nd of September, 2020 calling on the Federal Government to reverse the anti-people increment in stamp duty, PMS price, electricity tariff and the stoppage of the anti-social media bill amongst others, the leadership of NANS Zone D calls on all Nigerian students, workers, and the Nigerian people to be prepared for mass action.
