NANS Asks University Of Benin To Withdraw Fashola’s Law Certificate
Recently, The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola argued that it was unconstitutional for any group to interfere with the movement of other Nigerians.
The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has called on the leadership of the University of Benin to revoke the certificate of education issued to Minister of Labor and Housing Babatunde Fashole (SAN).
The minister said on Wednesday that NANS’ interference with the movement of vehicles on the Lagos-Ibadan highway is against the law. “The right to protest is a right that is well protected in the Constitution, but it does not include the right to cause pain or discomfort to others. It’s against the law in itself,” Fashola said.
In response, NANS spokesman Giwa Yisa Temitope said the minister’s statement showed he was embroiled in a major contradiction about what the law was supposed to say.
The student movement has called on leaders of the Academic Employees Union of Universities (ASUU) to kick off the Fashola law degree revocation process.
The statement read: “He is trying to trivialize a very important issue by downplaying the law. In addition to the obviousnature of the letters in part 2 of the constitution on basic human rights, Fashola should tell us how well-founded a protest is to the right to “cause suffering and injustice.” convenient for others?” “When it comes to NANS, Fashola has long shown that he does not understand Nigerian laws.
It was the same person who reported that a SANship in his name had attempted to destroy evidence of the very important Lekki Massacre.
Young Nigerians no longer respect Fashola and his false ideals. “The best thing is that the minister should go and make restitutions to the government of Buhari to pay ASUU now instead of calling for the suspension of the protest we have started.
“If Fashola continues to insult our protests, we will begin to prepare to prevent another attack on our movement. We know that it was Fashola who started contacting government agents and thugs to attack us. We want to warn that if anything happens to our students in any part of the country, we will hold Minister Fashola accountable. “However, we urge ASUU UNIBEN to initiate the process of revoking Fashola’s law degree.
We also reiterate our request for an early meeting with ASUU leadership. We need constructive synergy to win this war. “Finally, we apologize to all of our relatives and friends who have been affected by these protests.
We believe we must act because education at all levels in Nigeria is at stake. Victory is certain! “And, we also announced that a task force is in place to enforce compliance, led by a former vice president of the association, Ojo Raymond Olumide.
So, there shall be no going back and we shall continue this struggle.”
