Akinteye Babatunde Afeez a.k.a Babtee, the National Union of Nigerian Students (NANS) National Vice-President External Affairs, has frowned at the difficulties faced by Nigerian students in the diaspora and has equally thrown a fist.
Newsbreak.ng reports that Nigerian students in the diaspora are faced with a perplexing situation that has rendered them vulnerable to adverse situations in the pursuit of their academic trajectory.
In light of this, Afeez frowned at “this inconsistent and hostile treatment of Nigerian students in the diaspora.”
Several Nigerian students are facing the risk of deportation due to difficulties in processing their tuition fees and other financial dues that must be met.
“We are calling on the Nigerian Ambassador to the United Kingdom, Ambassador Sarafa Ishola, Hon. Abike Dabiri and the Federal Ministry of Education to take actionable steps with respect to the hardship facing Nigerian students in the diaspora,” Afeez said.
“An injury to one is an injury to all. Nigerian students deserve better and it is a must that we enjoy the dividend of Governance.
“In solidarity, we call out the Central Bank of Nigeria to make available foreign exchange and transactions of the Nigerian currency to the Nigerian students in the diaspora for their comfort and wellbeing.
“The Nigerian students will take proper measures if the necessary measures are not enacted as soon as possible.
“We also use this medium to call on the CEO of the Nigeria Diaspora Commission, MRS Abike Dabiri Erewa to be more proactive in her duties, in as much as we are commending her in the areas she has done well, we are also reiterating the fact that more is expected of her in protecting the interests of Nigerian students in the diaspora.”
