NSUK: Jonathan Approves Construction Of Boreholes by Nobody: 8:30am On Mar 05, 2013
Following a protest which led to the killing of students of Nasarawa state University last Monday, President Goodluck Jonathan has approved the construction of boreholes in the state owned institution.

While the students were protesting against the persistent shortage of water in the school, a detachment of soldiers stormed the school hours into the demonstration and in a bid to disperse the protesters fired live bullets that killed least two of them. The students however claim four were killed and not two as claimed by the state government and other security agaents.

However, in a response to the uproar the incident had sparked, President Goodluck Jonathan on Monday approved N20 million to the management of the university for them to commence work on the construction of bore holes in the school.

Jude Imagwe, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Youth and Student Matters, presented the letter of approval for the boreholes to the Vice Chancellor of the University, Shamsudeen Amali, when he led other students union bodies to the school.

He quoted Mr. Jonathan as saying that the gesture was aimed at enhancing availability of water as well as to reduce the plight of students, which led to the last week students’ unrest.

“I am disturbed and worried about what happened in which some students lost their lives as a result of the protest,” the presidential aide quoted the president as saying.

“The sum of N20 million was approved to the institution to enable it sink more bore holes in order to reduce the problem of inadequate water supply in the institution.

“He who provides water provides life. Life will be unbearable to the students if there is scarcity of water in the campus. They (students) will not even concentrate on their academic activities at the same time,” he added.

The president described the incident that led to the killing of the university students as unfortunate and uncalled-for.

He urged the student union bodies to always employ dialogue and peaceful means in fighting for their rights.

Responding, the vice chancellor thanked the president for the gesture, saying it would go a long way in addressing the water scarcity in the school.

Amali promised to make judicious use of the money for the purpose it was meant.

He denied inviting military personnel to quell the students’ protest that led to the killing of two students of the institution.

The President of the Students Union Government of the University, Rabiu Tijani, thanked President Jonathan for the gesture, saying the steps taken by the state legislature to bring the perpetrators of the act to book was laudable.

This is a good gesture but must provision of basic amenitites in Schools be allowed to reach the height of students
demonstrating before they are provided?. The two students that were killled during the protest has turned to sacrificial lambs for the water project if I may say. My prayer is that this money be judiciously spent on the project rather than being embezzled by those concerned.

Re: NSUK: Jonathan Approves Construction Of Boreholes by talktimi(m): 9:12am On Mar 05, 2013
This is a state university & the president has no business doing this gesture. The state government & the vc of that school should bow their heads in shame. The blood of the slain students shall continue to haunt them all the days of their lives. I know personally that money is released yearly for all state owned tertiary institution in this case but university authorities prefer to siphon such monies to their personal use as they don't see students as human beings but rather animals who are brought to a slaughter slab.

I've seen this same topics in some other dailies today. There is nothing wrong with the Fedral Government bailing out some ailing states in their projects.This may be what is happening in Nasarawa state so it is a welcome development.

Well it really shows underdevelopment.Why would a president be the one to approve the construction of a bore-hole for a uni. Me I don't get it.Is this not the reason you have vice-chancellors and the likes?

Wait, really?? grin

This is unadulterated FUCKERY! undecided

We are so used to misgovernance that a common borehole is commissioned/approved by THE PRESIDENT and people are commending him. WTF guys?! Water that is every student's right, even those that haven't paid school fees. IT IS NOT A PRIVILEGE!

Imagine Obama commissioning borehole in Howard or CUNY and it makes news, i mean, even a Mayor wouldn't flippin' do that! Chai... Nigeria, ndo!

No source. Link is dubious. Work of Lagos boys, who have over the years mastered how to set confusion in Nigeria, and relax and watch everyone work for them, developing Lagos.

You have sense .... GEJ can even approve PIT TOILET just to add to his project and he can even go for the commissioning
