Comr. Bamidele D. Akpan (NANS President)




















In what she described as unfortunate, she noted to the press that the allegations were reckless, devoid of truth and unwarranted.

Also the minister of police, Mr Bheki Cele who accompanied her to the state visit at Tanzania in his statement noted that most crimes in South Africa is committed by Nigerians against Nigeria Nationals including the Taxi violence in western Cape where two suspects has been arrested.

The Press Briefing as captured by News Crew Reads:

“The protest as said to be in response to alleged killings of Nigerians by south Africans, as you are aware, these allegations are devoid of truth, they are reckless and unwarranted.
We find these statements most unfortunate, as they don't reflect the strong relations that exists between the people and the governments of south Africa and Nigeria.
Firstly, there is no targeting of any any group of Africans in South Africa.
Secondly, our law enforcement agencies are making every effort to fight crime and arrest all criminals.”

The South Africa minister of police, Mr Bheki Cele added by saying:

“We have investigated some of these crimes, we have established that 16 of murder crimes committed in South Africa; now its not allegation because we have investigated it, are committed by Nigerian Nationals against Nigerian nationals. That includes the murder that has taken place about a week or two in Western Cape which falls within the Taxi violence and we have arrested two Nigerian nationals against the murder of that Nigerian National.”



Lady Pandor also noted that South Africa is comforted by the assurances given by the Nigerian government on the safety of South Africans and their business in Nigeria.

She also extended an invitation to Nigerians, aimed at reciprocating the assurances the Nigerian government has given.




She said: “I am hoping that with the support of our high commission in Nigeria we’ll be able to invite to South-Africa some of the leaders of the student organisation leading the course of protest against South-African businesses in Nigeria.” while calling on the head of the South African parliament to invite the President of the Nigerian Senate and their delegation to visit South-Africa to see that Nigerians are living in Peace with South-Africans.


On the other News, President Muhammed Buhari has accepted invitation for a state visit to south South Africa Slated for first week of October this year.







NANS gives 7 days ultimatum to South Africans to vacate Nigeria.




The Ultimatum which was given in a press briefing by the Nigeria Student body States:
SOUTH AFRICANS MUST GO; NIGERIANS RETURN HOME FROM SOUTH AFRICA.




Gentlemen of the Press
You may recall that Nigerian students as directed by the NANS leadership has been on the street in major cities of Nigeria in the last two weeks enforcing the picketing of South African businesses to draw global attention to the mindless killings of Nigerians and looting of their properties in South Africa.
Interestingly, the picketing exercise was peacefully carried out in the hope that the government of South Africa and her citizens would once and for all end all forms of attacks on citizens of other African nations.
Behold, the killings have continued and has even assumed a more dangerous dimension. This worsening development calls for a swift reaction.
Importantly, we want to call on Nigerians in South Africa to reconsider their stay in South Africa and return home.
Having gone through the first phase without any remorse or practical action to end xenophobic attacks in South Africa, we wish to announce that Nigerian students have decided to take on South Africans same way they are doing to our people. We have seen the helplessness of the South African government in reining in their citizens and wish to condemn in unambiguous terms the continued pampering of those involved. Every nation has her own internal crisis hence no citizen of other nation should be sacrificed for criminal activities of South Africans or any other.
Since the economic prosperity of Nigerians can no longer be tolerated and their lives secured in South Africa, there's no need also to condone the continued flourishing of South African businesses and her citizens in Nigeria.
We therefore wish to officially ask all South African owned businesses in Nigeria to relocate in the next 7 days. We specifically want MULTICHOICE, MTN, STANBIC IBTC BANK, SHOPRITE and others to close their businesses in their own interest within 7 days commencing from today. In the same vein, we request that South African nationals in Nigeria should return to their home country as we no longer can watch them enjoy peaceful living in Nigeria while our citizens in their country continue to pay with their dear lives for no reason other than being industrious and resourceful in their businesses and career.
We have consistently maintained that diplomacy has failed in addressing the xenophobic question. We have heard and seen diplomatic measures put in place without any sincere action taken by the South African government. We have seen again that the people of South Africa are not committed to peaceful coexistence with other nationals hence the wanton killings and destruction of other Africans.
We have now come to a point where action is required to safeguard Nigerians and enforce their dignity.
To this end, we announce the commencement of 'Operation Clampdown' on South Africans and their businesses in Nigeria.
The Central Coordinating Committee of the entire student movement in Nigeria is hereby activated for mass action.
We thank all those who have shown genuine concerns in ending the xenophobic madness and wish to reassure our citizens everywhere across the globe of our determination to fight this to a logical conclusion.
Dare to Struggle, Dare to Win!
Signed:
Comr. Danielson Bamidele Akpan, GCNS
Worldwide President, NANS.

THE SACRIFICE OF EID-EL-KABIR, A TIMELY SERMON TO THE CONSCIOUSNESS OF NIGERIANS - FAMUYIBO OLUWASEGUN (CAPTAIN)


As we celebrate Eid-el-Kabir, the celebration of the greatest sacrifice, we join the Muslim faithfuls all over the country, most especially Nigerian Students in sharing the joy of the greatest sacrifice and the celebration of its gains.

In sober reflection of our National experience, we celebrate the sacrifices of our combatants soldiers in keeping us safe especially those who at the cause of protecting our lives, sovereignty and territorial integrity has paid the supreme price as a sacrifice for the safety and security of Nigerians.

We as people must therefore seize the opportunity provided by this season of unconditional love, to continue to make sacrifices to the security and unity of this nation.

We must pay more attention to those variables that further unite us as people of collective destiny irrespective of our ethnicity, religion persuasion and political affinity. 

We must all do our best in commitment to see the end to killings, kidnapping, banditry and terrorism in Nigeria. 

As we celebrate fellow Nigerians, we must remember to continue to pray for our nation  Nigeria, we must pray for her peace, stability and economic  prosperity.

Still in the spirit of celebration of the greatest sacrifice, we remember the lives and sacrifices of Nigerian Students whose lives were cut short recently in Bauchi in the unfortunate but avoidable bridge collapse accident. 

We therefore call on every one in position of authority to pro-actively take conscious and deliberate actions to protect the sanctity of human lives and place premium on actions that will further place value on lives of every Nigerian.

Leaders at every level of our National life must borrow from the core message of this season and continue to see Public Service as a sacrifice to God and the people.

God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria!

God bless Nigeria Students!!

God bless NANS!!!
