The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has expressed sadness over the death of 11 students of University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID) in an auto accident. A total of 11 students of UNIMAID died in the accident on Nov. 20 on their way to Damaturu from Maiduguri following the ASUU strike. The National Public Relations Officer of NANS, Mr. Best Okereafor, gave the condolence in a statement issued in Enugu.
He stated that “NANS mourns the fallen Nigerian students and in same vain attributes the demise to the ongoing Academic Staff Unions of Universities (ASUU) strike. NANS believes that if the strike was not ongoing; the students would have been in school, studying.”
NANS is calling on the Federal Government to save our future and consider the souls of these fallen innocent Nigerian students often told that they are the leaders of tomorrow. Can we lead in grave?
said, “In as much as we believe in the President Muhammadu Buhari-led
administration, NANS is on this sad note, calling on Federal Government to make
students happy by meeting the demands of the striking ASUU and Colleges of

According to him, ASUU should not politicize the industrial action but consider the lives of Nigerian students by shifting grounds.
