The National Association of Nigerian Students has announced its Lagos students week, which will begin on November 15th, 2021.
The Lagos Students week is in line with the International students day which is worldwide celebrated every year to highlight students activism and contributions to National and Internationall development.

The one-week celebration will take place from November 15th to November 18th, 2021, and will include programmes such as a students summit, leadership awards, an essay competition, an awareness walk, and others.

“The theme of the programme, which will be held in Lagos, is Student Unionism: Pathway to a Democratic and United Nigeria. “In the last year, our administration has been able to improve the effect programs and activities towards the development of Students in the state.

“We organised the Lagos Students Security Summit last year, facilitated the distribution of Sienna buses to all student unions in the state, and collaborated with YCMA to train our student leaders in the state. We actively participated in the fight to reduce school fees at Lagos State University, and we represented the state at both zonal and national programmes.”

Eko digital, as mentioned above, refers to all programmes that have contributed to the development of students in Lagos in accordance with the current administration’s T.H.E.M.E.S agenda.
However, the leadership is pleased with the increase in budget for education in Lagos state, as well as His Excellency Gov. Babjide Sanwolu’s ongoing efforts through the office of Special Adviser on Education Mr Tokunbo Wahab, which have seen institutions in the state compete with other institutions in Nigeria and around the world.

“We urge the state government to consider merging Lagos State College of Health Technology, School of Nursing, and Lagos State Teaching Hospital to form Lagos State University of Medical Science, in light of the current administration’s efforts to elevate Mocped, Aocoed, and Laspotech to recognised awarding institutions.
We are grateful to the management of all institutions in Lagos for allowing Students Unionism to thrive, particularly the management of Yabatech for resurrecting the Students Union, and we appeal to the management of the University of Lagos to think in this direction.”

“We extend our greetings to all Heads of Institutions, Government officials, Political Elites, and other well-meaning Lagosians for the growth and development of the association.”
We also use this medium to raise awareness about the security challenges that institutions face,
Such as the insecurity that led to Comrade Yusuf Nurudeen Omomewa’s death, rising cultism, drug abuse, and other related offences in our tertiary institutions.

We strongly urge the government and school administration to take action.
After careful consideration of the performance, Mr Governor, we are ready to continue constructing a peaceful environment in which your administration can operate.
