Prioritize security – NANS tells Tinubu

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) on Sunday called on President Bola Tinubu to give greater priority to the security of lives and property in the country.

The Senate President of the association, Mr. Elvis Ekudina, made the remarks at a press conference in Abeokuta.

Ekdina said it was important for student organizations to express their opinions on the national situation.

He called on the President to find lasting solutions to current security challenges, ranging from kidnappings, bandit attacks and attacks on security personnel.

“The recent attacks in several villages in Plateau State where innocent residents were killed remain alarming,” he said.

He added that domestic security agencies need to step up intelligence gathering to detect future attacks.

“We demand a comprehensive investigation into this attack and call on the federal government to ensure the perpetrators of this crime are prosecuted and face the consequences of their inhumane acts.

“We likewise call on President Tinubu to hold the leaders of our security agencies accountable to improve intelligence gathering techniques to protect us from future attacks and counterattacks.

“We call on the President to prioritize the security of all Nigerians and our property because our right to life is fundamental as enshrined in our Constitution.”

Mr. Ekundina assured the government of giving maximum support to Nigerian students to achieve the set goals.
