It is with a deep sense of humility and
responsibility that the National President of Plateau
state students ( NAPSS ) writes to address some
issues bothering the plight and welfare of
Plateau State students.
University of Jos
The University of Jos is one of the most famous
universities known for peaceful learning
environment, academic excellence and the
production of competent graduates, it is however
unfortunate that the institution has found itself in
this present tussle. The recent happenings
in the institution is disheartening to say the least.
1. The university recently informed the general
public on the unanimous agreement between
the management, Students and parents on the new
school fee charges put at N45,000 .
However it was unfortunate to realize that the
management had given a wrong perception
when the SUG President of the institution clarify
the union’s stand on their resistance of the
new school fees structure.
2.SUSPENSION OF THE SUG EXECUTIVE ARM
The news of the suspension of the executive arm
of the Student Union Government of
Unijos, is unfortunate and unacceptable in a unified
community as Plateau state. The
university management did not just act childishly
but proved to the general public and
Plateau state (host community) that they are
financially dubious and lack prudence .
However it has become necessary of me to take
the following actions.
1. Demand the immediate reinstatement of the
Executive arm of the Student Union
Government of University of Jos between now and
the next 72 hours.
2. The university of Jos is to note, that Plateau
state is enjoying peace today not because
of her cowardice, but as a result of managing
situations and tolerance for one another, and
the efforts put in place by the Plateau State
Government to ensure peaceful coexistence of
all her citizens through the inclusive leadership
style of the Rescue administration led by Rt.
Hon. Barr. Simon Bako Lalong the Executive
Governor of Plateau state. Therefore as the
national President of Plateau state students the
host community of University of Jos will
not fold my arms and watch the university
management disrupt the relative peace we are
enjoying.
3. That the increment in the school fees is not just
injustice to the students, but to the
Plateau State citizens who are not financially
buoyant to be technically excluded from
sending their children to the University, considering
the fact that the University is Hosted by
Plateau state, though a Federal government owned
institution. We are in demand of the
downward review of the school fees charges within
the next 7 days (1 week)
4. All Plateau state students and Plateau Sons and
Daughters are to converge in Mass at
the Plateau State Polytechnic Jos campus by 8:am
to match to the University of Jos To
make the formal submission of our demands and
take on the issue.
Note: all Plateau state students and committed
Plateau state citizens must be oderly law
abiding and must not cause any form of chaos in
the course of our submissions.

Aluta Continua
Victoria Acerta
Signed
Alexander lugutnaan Daklong
National President of NAPSS
