The National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, called on President Bola Tinubu on Sunday to prioritize the safety of people and property in the country.
Mr Elvis Ekudina, Senate President of the association, made the announcement at a press conference in Abeokuta.
Ekudina stated that it was critical for the student body to speak up about the status of the nation.
He encouraged the President to find a long-term solution to existing security concerns such as kidnapping, bandit assaults, and attacks on security personnel.
“The recent attack in some villages in Plateau state where innocent citizens were killed remains worrisome,” he told reporters.
He also stated that the country’s security agencies needed to improve their intelligence gathering in order to detect future assaults.
“We demand a thorough investigation into this attack and urge the federal government to ensure that the perpetrators of the crime are brought to justice and face the consequences of their inhumane actions.”
“We also urge President Tinubu to direct the leadership of our nation’s security agencies to improve intelligence gathering techniques in order to protect us from future attacks and counter-attacks.”
“We call on the President to prioritise the security of all Nigerians and our properties, as our right to live is a fundamental one as enshrined in the constitution,” the president added.
Ekundina stated that Nigerian students will work tirelessly to help the administration accomplish its goals.
