NANS Calls on FG to Reverse Hike in Fuel Price, Electricity Tariff
The National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, has called for a reversal of the hikes in the petrol pump price and that of electricity as it is impacting negatively on the people.
The President of the Association, Comrade Danielson Akpan made the call during a news conference in Abuja.
He explained that such increase was coming amidst earlier increments in the value added tax and multiple taxations on goods and services with unbearable consequences on Nigerians.
Comrade Akpan noted that prices of food items, consumables, transportation and other essential services had skyrocketed.
Comrade Akpan also announced that students would engage in mass protest across the six-geo political zones and the FCT if the increased prize was not reversed.
