The National President of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Comrade Haruna Kadiri, has vowed to lead Nigerian students across the nation in shutting down the Turkish Embassy in Abuja tomorrow, Thursday, October 6, 2016.

He told News Express today in Abuja: “I will, after our inauguration ceremony in the University of Abuja, lead the students to Turkish Embassy and lock it down. If we are tired to do that on Thursday, we will do it on Friday morning.
“Through the protest, we want to send a message to the Embassy that they must not continue to toil with the lives of our students and be continually victimised and intimidated. We have over 50 of Nigerian students in Turkey that they claimed they are terrorists and locked in a room, after a failed coup. They are treating our students like animals and feel there is no one to speak for them.”
Speaking further, Kadiri equally threatened to lock down every property that belongs to Gombe State Government because of the chaos the State Governor Hassan Dankwambo, is allegedly plotting to create in the association.
According to Kadiri, “The Governor is trying to create and sponsor another group among us and claiming that they are the NANS EXCO members. And this will definitely cause faction in our organisation.
“This is because he knows that this new NANS Executive is not for nonsense as we stand for justice. He cannot use us for any political reason. So, we will emphatically tell him that gone are the days when students were being used as political thugs, election rigging and creating nuisance in the country, for selfish reasons.”
The NANS President added that the Governor’s Lodge and the Liasion Office in Abuja would be locked up on Thursday or Friday.
Comrade Kadiri stated that his administration is poised to bring the lost consciousness and unionism amongst Nigerian students back to campuses.
His words: “There is something new about this event. It is the first time this association would be holding an inauguration like this on campus.
“However, the association would engage the new executive members in taking oath of office officially, at the event which would hold at the University of Abuja on Thursday.”
Kadiri disclosed that “the focus of the current administration under my leadership is to take NANS back to the campus. And, in doing this, we should be seen doing our activities on the campus. Also, our students inside and outside the campus, who would be coming for the event, would have a very good feel and be happy that such an event is happening within school vicinity.
“All of this is to also bring back the consciousness and unionism back to our campuses at different places in the country.”
He promised that there would be a lot of excitement and fun that would herald the event because “there would be enough mobilisation as students would be coming from various parts of the country to witness the inauguration and see new things happening in NANS.”
