The National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, has heavily lambasted the alleged inconsistent and hostile treatment that Nigerian students in the United Kingdom are currently facing.
NANS national Vice President, Akinteye Babatunde Afeez, had made the condemnation on Tuesday, November 22 via a statement. In his statement, he had said that Nigerian students in the diaspora, most especially in the UK are facing a vulnerable, perplexing situation in the pursuit of their academic quest.
According to Afeez, the association’s concern was in line with the NANS President for the UK Chapter, Comrade Michael Obakhavbaye, who bemoaned that several Nigerian students were currently at risk of deportation, owing to the difficulties in processing their tuition fees and certain financial dues that must be met.
Afeez had however, promised that NANS would continue to be the voice of the Nigerian students and had called on the Nigerian Ambassador to the UK, Ambassador Sarafa Ishola, Abike Dabiri, and the Federal Ministry of Education to take ‘actionable steps’ with regards to the hardship Nigerian students were now facing in the diaspora.
