The National Association of Nigeria Students (NANS), has rejected the behaviour of Ondo State Governor Rotimi Akeredolu who allegedly walked them out of his office during a meeting to discuss hike in tuition in the state owned tertiary institutions.
NANS in a statement sen to our correspondent likened Mr Aderedolu behaviour to that of Pharaoh and Adolf Hitler.
Before now, Ondo State Institutions have been shut due to hike in school fees.
Danielson Bamidel Akpan, NANS National President, who narrated their encounter with the governor alleged him of being unruly.
“After meeting with the governor on the need to address the issue, he displayed the highest level of arrogance by telling us to go to hell, that his decision is final and that he is not going to reduce the school fees. He whoever cannot pay should go to hell that schooling is not by force. And this is somebody who benefited from free education.”
“The governor threatened us that he is ready to order the security men to flush us out if we dare protest. Whereas peaceful protest is our right. It the last resort in negotiations.”
“We saw arrogance at its peak in Gov. Akeredolu when we met with him. It looks as if I was sitting with Adolf Hitler. It seems as if I was sitting in the presence of Pharaoh. Even when we met with President Buhari, he did not address us in such manner. But it is surprising that a governor whose power is limited within a state could put up that show of arrogance.”
“Two years is too long to chase him, it is now upon us, parents, students, artisans and entire people of Ondo State to stop this tyranny,”
