Mr. Obi emphasized the necessity of implementing immediate measures to address the escalating financial burdens faced by students, particularly in light of the high cost of living. He stressed that such assistance is crucial to ensure that students are not impeded in their pursuit of education.

Furthermore, NANS called upon the government to provide shuttle buses for students in all tertiary institutions to alleviate transportation difficulties, which further exacerbate the financial strain on students.

Recognizing the pivotal role of education in national development, NANS underscored the importance of creating a conducive environment for academic excellence by addressing the financial constraints hindering students’ progress.

In addition to providing immediate relief through palliatives, NANS emphasized the significance of education grants as a means of further supporting students’ well-being and academic pursuits.
