The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), said it will not condone any attempt to truncate the smooth running of the university by any group.
This is contained in a statement signed by the association’s National Director, Travels and Exchange, Dominic Philip, and made available to the media in Kaduna yesterday.
The statement also cautioned Zazzau Emirate Development Association (ZEDA), against comments that would disrupt the current peace in Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria.
The students body was reacting to a statement signed by ZEDA President, Alhaji Ahmadu Maccido and Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Sani Tanko on the emergence of Prof. Kabir Bala as ABU Vice Chancellor.
The group had called for the suspension of the appointment and the setting up of a committee to investigate the processes that led to the emergence of Bala as the new VC, which they claimed did not follow due process.
However, the students described the allegation as “baseless” and advised the group to desist from any act that would lead to the disruption of peace in the University.
