NANS has criticised President Jonathan government over its failure to tackle the problems of corruption, insecurity, unemployment and power. It accused the present leadership of practicing a religion of corruption which has negatively affected students.
President Goodluck Jonathan's government has been described as "inexpert and amateurish" by the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Joint Campus Committee (JCC), Lagos State.
The union, in statement issued on Monday berated the President Jonathan-led Federal Government under which they said Nigerian students have suffered a lot.
"The effect of the inexpert and amateurish governance of the federal government have heavy tolls on our members," the union said.
It added that students have not gained from Jonathan's government, emphasising the problems of power insecurity, unemployment and corruption.
"We supply our own power with generators and we can't even tell categorically the duration we use public power.
"80% of our axis in states like Borno, Yobe and Adamawa are under the hostage of Boko Haram - bombings are targeted at both Christians and Muslims, churches, mosque and schools."
"How many of our politicians have their children that are graduates sitting at home unemployed, bear the brunt of insecurity, send their children to public school, patronise government hospitals like we do," the statement further read.
The union condemned the nation's leaders who they say practice only the religion of corruption.
"The so called Nigerian political thieves are all over in the executives, legislature and Judiciary arms of government.
"The student community tags them "execu-thieves, legisla-thieves and judi-sharers.
"They dont have a religion that has bind them together other than the religion of stealing, looting and siphoning with impunity."
The statement was signed by the Chairman NANS/JCC, Lagos Axis, Sanusi Sulaimon and the P.R.O. Southwest Region (Zone D), Olatinwo Jeremiah,
