The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has frowned at the lingering fuel scarcity, saying it was imposed a significant burden amid citizens’ suffering economic hardship.

“If Mele Kyari fails to take decisive action to resolve the fuel crisis, we call for his resignation or removal from office,” NANS said. “Nigerian students cannot afford to suffer any longer under ineffective leadership. If the NNPCL fails to act swiftly and decisively to address the fuel crisis, Nigerian students are prepared to take mass action.”

NANS made its feelings known in a statement released by Comrade Akinteye Afeez, the Senate President of NANS.

The statement also said students would embark on mass protests to escalate their grievances, if the situation failed to improve.

It expressed dismay over the deteriorating fuel supply under the oversight of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation Limited (NNPCL).

“The recent episodes mark the worst fuel crisis in recent memory, severely disrupting daily life and academic activities,” Afeez stated.

According to NANS, the persistent fuel shortages and the resultant impact on electricity supply and general living costs are forcing students and the general populace to endure severe hardships.

“Nigerian students have never witnessed such prolonged shortages and disruptions to fuel supply, and we refuse to accept this as the new normal,” Afeez said.

He further emphasized the urgency for NNPCL to enhance transparency, accountability, and efficiency in fuel distribution across the nation.

“Immediate action from the NNPCL is essential to restore stability and ensure the efficient distribution of fuel. Bottlenecks and inefficiencies in the supply chain must be addressed without delay,” the statement added.
