NANS, AWC Urge Nigerians To Rise Against Worsening Living Conditions, Others



 From Ayobami Ife, Abeokuta
      
National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) and workers under the aegis of All Workers Convergence (AWC), have said they would mobilize Nigerians in peaceful protest over the worsening living conditions due to the comatose economy and alleged Government's unwillingness or failure to decisively address it.

In a statement by the National  Coordinator, AWC, Comrade  Emelieze Andrew, Coordinator, NANS Zone D, Kowe Odunayo Amos and 
Secretary-General, NANS Zone D, Giwa Yisa Temitope, which was made available to The Daily Crucible,
the three expressed worry over what they claimed to a precarious and degenerating situation facing the country.

In the statement titled,"Letter To The Nigerian People. Nigerians Arise," they deplored the increasing devaluation of life in the country, stagnated development and reign of terror, also calling on Nigerians to start mobilizing in this month of May immediately across the federation.

NANS and AWC also called on Nigerians to demand a halt to the drift and sufferings in the land. 

The joint statement read : "We the Nigerian workers, students  and youths bring you greetings and our best wishes. We write you this letter with a troubled heart, because we are disturbed at the pace of things in this nation. We are afraid about the further degeneration of the situation of things in Nigeria. We are also worried by the implications of this abnormality on the future of Nigerians. We are equally suprised that despite the EndSars movement and despite all indications that we are sitting on a keg of gunpowder, our government has refused to improve.

"The situation of things across the country have assumed an alarming proportion to the extent that our living conditions are daily drifting from bad to worst. Great Compatriots, we are tired of lamenting over the woes visited on us as a result of a failed system and bad governance in Nigeria. In our own country, our daily existence is not different from a war situation.

"Human lives no longer matter as our people are daily massacred and, most unfortunately, the killings are not abating. Our national economy is in comatose with our so-called government delibrately devaluing our naira. The lives of the Nigerian people have been made meaningless and miserable to the extent that our people now resort to suicide. Development has been stagnated and there seem to be no hope of a better tomorrow.

"The questions we want to ask ourselves is that  how long are we going to cope with these abnormalities? Obviously, we know that we are all not comfortable with the pace of things in Nigeria neither are we happy with the reign of terror in the land.

"The next question is that, are we ready to end the ugly situation?

"We are quite sure everyperson is saying that  WE ARE READY! It is to this end that we are calling on all and sundry to start mobilizing for mass protest across the federation starting from now and culminating in mass action from 24th May, 2021 and the protest should continue until the people triumph.  

"However, immediate protest  can also commence across the country while all efforts should be made to ensure that the protest goes national on or before May 24. Our destiny is our hands and we must not wait for anyone to mobilize us, we should mobilize ourselves."
