The Coordinator, National Association. of Nigerian Students, NANS, ZONE B, South-East and South-South,Comrade Jeremiah Friday, has condemned the actions of the President, Students’ Union Government (SUG), Delta State University (DELSU), Abraka,Comrade Joshua Ojaide for condeming their move to organize a protest over the collection of COVID-19 levy from students.

Ojaide had in a letter disassociated the university’s student community from the planned protest, saying that they are in support of the payment of N5, 000 COVID-19 fee and do not want any students association interfering with the internal affairs of DELSU.

In a press statement made available to Oasis Magazine (OM), Jeremiah said: “I write with utmost dismay that an SUG President of an institution like DELSU could condescend so low to conniving with school management by taking advantage of this global pandemic to defraud and extort Nigerian students.”

According to him, the “Student Union President MUST be reminded that student activism/struggle is the only HOPE for “The Nigerian Students.”

He continued: “Let me correct the notion that NANS, is controlled by elements that can’t be traced as students of any higher institution in Nigeria.

“The aforementioned organs as far back as we can remember has tirelessly and countless times stood up to fight for the interest of the common Nigerian student (even in Abraka)! Lest I forget let me remind the SUG President of DELSU that the leadership of these associations are legitimate students of various Institutions domiciled in their regions of scope. Be reminded that Jeremiah Friday Ohomah who is the NANS ZONE B COORDINATOR is a legitimate Student of the Federal University of Petroleum Resources Effurum, Delta State.

“Permit me to reiterate that these Union leaders were subjected to screening to certify that they are students before they were duly voted into office.”

Furthermore, he called on the SUG President of DELSU to tender a written apology to NANS and other daughter associations within 24 hours or face the sanctions of the organization as he would be stripped of his comradeship and eventually lose his stake, in failing to do so.

While calling on the university management to revert the directive to students to pay N5, 000 COVID-19 fee, he warned that “Nigerian Students will resist and protest against any attempt from any quarter no matter how it is coined to forcefully collect monies (tagged COVID-19 LEVY) from Students of DELSU or any institution within NANS ZONE B (South-East and South-South tertiary institutions).
