Following extensive meeting, former Presidents of the
National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) have concluded to
relocate its National Secretariat to Niger State over the unresponsive
act of the State government to the state of health of one of its former
President, Comrade Dauda Mohammed.
The leadership of NANS, also threatened to stage a national mass action on Tuesday concerning the same issue.
Speaking with newsmen in Abuja, on Monday,
its National President, Comrade Chukwunonso Obasi, pointed out that:
“the palpable silence by Niger state government is a tactical plan to
abandon our national leader Dauda Mohammed to die. That will be resisted
because injustice anywhere is a threat to peace everywhere. The best
time to act is now! Aluta continua,” he said.
He added that “the emergency Senate meeting we had has
empowered the NANS President to lead a delegation of NANS leaders and
stakeholders to Niger state Government to fasten the release of the
necessary resources to aid the treatment of her former National
President, Dauda Mohammed who needs an urgent medical attention in a
recommended Indian hospital.”
It was further revealed to our Correspondent that Comrade Dauda is battling liver problem that needs transplant.
Also in his comment, the immediate Past President of the
students’ body, Comrade Tijani Usman said: “concerning Dauda’s health
condition, we have given an ultimatum which will expire today, Monday,
to the state government to respond promptly in assisting him
financially. As it is, he needs to be taken to Indian for treatment.
“The Governor of the State, Abubakar Sani Bello, has
approved 14 million, last week Thursday, for the treatment but
bureaucracy is what we want to avoid as we want him to go receive the
treatment urgently.
“As a matter of fact, NANS current leadership and former
leaders want all primary and secondary schools and tertiary institutions
in Niger state to immediately suspend academic activities, in
solidarity to this national mass action”, Usman added.
The Association is however willing to, through this
channels, mandate the Niger State Government, after the expired 7-day
ultimatum, to promptly intervene by paying the medical bills of the
dying ex-President, who is also from the same state.
