The association, however, drew the attention of the Federal Government to the need for increased vigour in checkmating decadence and criminal activities of the bandits across various states.

The students argued that insecurity, arising from kidnapping, robbery and banditry, has put the lives of so many people at risks.

The students also called on the Federal Government to handle the issues bordering on religious Shiites movement with diplomacy.

The association expressed concern about the Federal Government’s ministerial list which it said did not reflect enough youth inclusiveness in governance.

It called on the Federal Government to fully implement the upgrading of the appropriate polytechnics to degree awarding institutions.
