NANS Urges Adebayo Adelabu, Other Non-performing Ministers To Resign

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), the umbrella body of students in Nigeria, has expressed concern over the deteriorating socioeconomic situation in the country and called for the resignation of the Minister of Power, Adelabu Adebayo, and other underperforming government officials. NANS President Comrade Akinteye Babatunde Afeez stated that after 10 months in office, many Nigerians are frustrated and disillusioned by the lackluster performance of government appointees.

NANS criticized the Ministry of Power, led by Minister Adelabu Adebayo, for worsening the electricity supply situation in the country. They argued that electricity availability has significantly declined since the minister assumed office, leading to frequent power outages that have negatively impacted businesses, daily life, and the nation’s progress. NANS emphasized that a stable and reliable power supply is essential for economic growth, attracting foreign investors, promoting industrialization, and creating job opportunities.

The association called for the resignation of inactive ministers, particularly Minister Adebayo, who they believe lacks the necessary expertise and understanding in the power sector. They argued that many ministers seem to hold their positions as figureheads, without making meaningful contributions to their portfolios. NANS stressed that this trend of inertia and complacency within the government cannot be tolerated.

NANS highlighted the recent increase in electricity tariffs despite the inconsistent power supply, expressing concerns that students may face difficulties accessing learning tools and universities may struggle to afford electricity bills for digital learning infrastructure. They urged ministers who have exhibited incompetence and ineptitude to step down from their positions. The association emphasized that their call for resignations stems from a genuine desire to see Nigeria thrive and prosper, and to hold those in power accountable for their actions or lack thereof.

NANS threatened to stage a walkout on the Minister of Power if the necessary actions are not taken within seven days. They called on the government to listen to the voices of its citizens and take decisive action to address the issue of underperforming ministers. The association urged Minister Adebayo and others in similar positions to gracefully step aside if they are unable to meet the demands of their office.
