The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has kicked against the alleged anti-poor and anti-masses recruitment requirements of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corp[oration (NNPC).

NNPC recruitment ended last week Thursday and candidates await the next step.

Mr Adeyemi Azeez, NANS National Public Relations Officer (PRO) has revealed in a statement on Sunday in Abuja that would not allow the deliberate and well-structured resolve to play out many graduates, especially those from the poor background by NNPC during the recruitment exercise.

According to him, it is no longer news, that regular occurrences of incessant strikes in government-owned universities have been responsible for the continued downfall in the education sector of the country. Therefore, ordinarily, an undergraduate that applied for a four or five-year programme will eventually end up staying nine or 10 years on campus pursuing a bachelor degree. He also pointed out that NANS will not fall cheap of this deliberate attempt of disenfranchising majorly the real and qualified Nigerian graduates.

These graduates, who have gone through rigorous stages within the Nigerian Universities and polytechnics, should not be disenfranchised of this opportunity.

NANS issued NNPC a 72 hours ultimatum to withdraw all alleged anti-poor and anti-masses conditions.

Failure to comply with this ultimatum, NANS will move out en-mass to protest or shut down the activities of NNPC.

The association will also not hesitate to expose many of the ongoing and recent past frauds being perpetrated by this corporation.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the criteria for Graduate Trainee among others require applicants to have graduated from an accredited University/Polytechnic/Monotechnic not earlier than 2014. The criteria also required that applicants must not be more than 28 years of age as at Dec. 31, 2018. (NAN)
