The National Association of Nigerian Students NANS and South East APC YOUTH FRONTIERS, have made an assessment of Ministers who served the immediate past administration and after due considerations of their  achievements scored the  immediate past of state minister for education, Rt.Honourable Goodluck Nana Opiah high. 

At a joint news conference at Chida Hotels, Abuja the two bodies after a review of  the good moves made so far  by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the education sector clamoured for the need to have the immediate past Minister of State for Education, Rt Hon Opiah to return to the position based on achievements he recorded in the ministry. 

The leaders of the groups;  Comr. Victor W.C. Ezenagu,  Vice President  National Affairs National Association of Nigerian Students NANS and Comrade Ogbonna Collins for the South East APC Youth Frontiers made a case by asking for the  return of Opiah who they said did well for another chance in the education sector. 

The two groups expressed concern based on the planned implementation of the Education Loan law President Bola Ahmed Tinubu needs the  services of Rt.Hon.Goodluck Opiah for  the perfect execution/implementation of the Students loan recently passed to law and proper funding of tertiary institutions with Financial Autonomy granted to them.

“We once more congratulate our dear President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on his emergence, especially as he is fulfilling his campaign promises on all the sectors of the economy, with particular interest in the education sector.It is recently that we can see the possibility of Fuel Subsidy Removal, Students loan for Nigerian Students, Financial Autonomy to tertiary institutions,Proposed increased budgetary allocation to the education sector in line with International best practices.It is a step in the right direction.We call on  all the various stakeholders in our country Nigeria to close ranks and work with the government of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to achieve succeess and move Nigeria forward.As we watch and help the president in serving our country better,we recommend the Father of Nigerian Youths and Students who served shortly between July 2022 to May 2023 as Education minister State Rt.Hon.Goodluck Opiah, to help the government is achieving the best in Education and Youth development,as seen recently.It is worthy of note that Rt.Hon.Goodluck Opiah from IMO State while assisting Mallam Adamu Adamu as Senior minister saw to the establishment of seven Polytechnics across the country with thirty five private universities issued licences, commencing academic activities for hunman capital development.We also saw his youthfulness in touring round most higher institutions, either representing former president or standing for the education ministry in Convocations,Award of Honours,Project Commissioning etc, which made always meeting and interacting with students and staff of various Higher institutions,profering far reaching solutions.He tried his best and we believe he will do more if granted the chance”
