National Association of Polytechnic Students (NAPS), the apex body governing all students studying in polytechnics, monotechnics, colleges of technology and all other allied institutions awarding national and higher national diploma certificate across the six geopolitical zones of the federation and diaspora, has called on the President Buhari administration to fish out those behind the threats issued by a group that claimed to be Fulani Jihadists to Governor Ifeanyi Okowa over his support for the ban on open grazing in the south south.
In a publication, the threat to the Okowa adminstration on Sunday, said the governor had 72 hours to withdraw his support, saying that failure to do so they would attack places in Asaba and Agbor, the local government area Okowa hails from.
Although the police command in the state said the threats should be ignored and MEND, a militant group in the Niger Delta vowed to retaliate any attack on Delta soil, NAPS, the second largest students movement in Africa continent, with the conglomeration of all SUG Presidents within the polytechnic divide as senators, forming the senate assembly with over 40.1 million armless battalion of students as membership strength, said the Senate leadership of NAPS received distressed calls from her teaming members, particularly polytechnic students in Delta state, the host state of NAPS senate secretariat concerning the trending and online circulating release signed by one Fulani Jihadist Group, claiming to unleash terrors on unsuspecting Deltans.
According to a statement signed by H.E Gen DIO, Oghale Emeka Rex,
President of the Senate, the student body said it is pathetic to note that Buhari’s administration is beginning to fail Nigerian students which he swore an oath to protect both her lives and properties, adding that the Nigerian students movement wish to state unequivocally that he should as a matter of urgency address the security threats in the country and most particularly Delta state and ensure that who or those involved in perpetuating the unrest are brought to book.
Continuing, NAPS said: “It is our duty as an association to advocate and press for the demands of the betterment and general welfare of our students and parents,” adding that “the leadership will not seize to mobilize her teeming members nationwide to resist any action that is tantamount to cause havoc and disrupt of our academic calendar.”
“In as much as NAPS is a law abiding association, our silence shouldn’t be taken for weakness. We also acknowledge the efforts of His Excellency, Sen Dr Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa, the executive governor of Delta state to tackle insecurity in the state and our campuses amidst scarce resources which has earned him the honor as the most students friendly governor.
NAPS senate leadership called on the president to seize the medium of the seven (7) day ultimatum to rise to the occasion and address this particular threat by the FULANI JIHADIST to avoid security breach and unforeseen unrest on or before monday 21st of June 2021, saying that upon the expiration of the ultimatum and he fails to address the threat to lives and bring the culprits to book, NAPS leadership will not hesitate to take a drastic measure, mobilize, use all legal and constitutional actions to press their demands home.
