The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) on Saturday, blast the River State Governor, Nyesome Wike for terminating the appointment of 344 lecturers and other members of staff of Rivers State Polytechnic.

According to a statement issued yesterday in Abuja and signed by its President, Comrade Tijani Usman, called on the governor to rescind his decision in the interest of progress.


The Students’ body stated that it was regrettable that the governor who is supposed to champion the cause of education haven served as Minister of State and substantive Minister of Education would allow political sentiments prevail over administration of the sector.

Usman stressed: “Nigerian students condemn in totality the action taken by the Rivers State governor as it lack any moral and rational justification. Sacking 344 lecturers and other staff of the institution in one fell swoop under the guise that their employment did not follow due process is a demonstration of administrative rascality.

“It is sad that rather than concentrates on providing dividends of democracy as promised, he is busy carrying out vengeful vendetta.”

It would be recalled that the newly sworn Rivers State governor, Ezebunwo Nyesom Wike, on June 17, 2015 terminate the appointment of 344 lecturers of the State Polytechnic, Bori.

The sack lecturers as gathered by our correspondent were recruited during the immediate past administration of former Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi.
