The National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, has called for a reversal of the hikes in the petrol pump price and that of electricity as it is impacting negatively on the people.
The President of the Association, Comrade Danielson Akpan made the call during a news conference in Abuja.
He explained that such increase was coming amidst earlier increments in the value added tax on goods and services with unbearable consequences on Nigerians.
Comrade Akpan said prices of food items, consumables, transportation and other essential services have increased.
He also announced that students would engage in mass protest across the six-geo political zones and the FCT if the increased price was not reversed.
