The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) on Tuesday made a passionate appeal to the authorities of Bauchi State University, Gadau, to review its recent decision to expel some students from the institution and appealed for your refund.
The allegation of the Nigerian student coordinating body was contained in a statement signed by its Director of Administration and Strategy, Prince Mohammed Sani, which was made available to journalists in Bauchi.
Sani appealed for clemency for the affected students, whom he found guilty of having acted against the ethics and values of the institution, adding that the expelled students are sorry since their expulsion and have since turned the page.
He stated that the NANS was against the actions of university students that violated its ethics and values and urged the institution to temper justice with mercy in the case of the affected students.
The body then defended continued support for Bauchi State University, Gadau, by the state government.
According to him, “From our consultation with student leaders and institution stakeholders, we discovered that our students who were expelled from the institution were found guilty of acting contrary to the institution’s ethics and values.
“We are against the pattern of our students in the institution that goes against the values and ethics of the institution. We are hopeful and confident in the direction that they will temper justice with mercy. We also call on the Bauchi state government to continue providing support to the institution ”.
Meanwhile, the association has passed a vote of confidence to the rector of the University, Professor Auwalu Uba, for his exemplary leadership skills, tremendous contributions to the development, peace, unity and progress of the institution.
Sani noted that the university’s management is committed to the well-being of its students, ensuring that NANS will continue to embrace dialogue with the institution on student issues.
“We salute the management of the institution for its commitment and dedication to the well-being of the students. NANS will continue to dialogue on behalf of our students because confrontation cannot solve our problems.
“We also congratulate the Bauchi State Government for its significant achievements in the education sector and call for more adequate funding for Bauchi State University in line with global best practices,” said Sani.
