The Joint Campus Committee (JCC) of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has endorsed the sack of vice chancellors of 12 federal universities and that of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), saying the action was legal.

The students said this at the weekend in Abuja, at a press conference addressed by Comrade Daniel Dansho and Comrade Joshua Ariyo, JCC chairmen of Plateau and Oyo zones respectively.

They said the sack of the vice chancellors was in accordance with the provisions of Universities (miscellaneous provisions) Decree no 11 of 1993.

“We believe that the sack of the vice chancellors of the 13 universities was done according to the law.

“The universities act does not have provision for elongation or renewal of tenure of vice chancellors. Those who are misjudging the actions of the Minister of Education should seek knowledge on public service rules and regulations. They should stop heating up the polity”, he said.

The JCC leaders decried the actions of Tijjani Usman whose tenure as NANS president, they claim expired last year.

“Tijjani Usman should stop parading himself as NANS president since his tenure expired in September last year. We are calling on both public and private organizations as well as individuals to note that Tijjani doesn’t represent NANS and whoever deals with him does so at his own peril. We are also calling on Comrade Usman to halt his campaigns against the federal government and organize a free and fair election for Nigerian students as soon as possible,” the group said.They announced that NANS election was scheduled for May 31, 2016.

“At the last meeting held by the Convention Planning Committee (CPC) of NANS, it was agreed that NANS election should hold between May 31, 2016 and June 4, 2016. It should be noted these dates are sacrosanct and must be upheld,” it added.
