    The Nigerian Students and Youth Association (NISAYA) as active and advocating union is committed in promoting and defending the interest of all students and Youth in Nigeria; and also championing the principles of Democracy as enshrined in the Nigerian Constitution by expanding access to equity and fairness to all the Youths and Students regardless of race, gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, finance, political, social or religious affiliations.

    Most esteemed ladies and gentlemen you will agree with me that the most valuable gift parents can ever give to their children is "Education." Any parent who deliberately deny his/her child Education is likely to be referred to as an arch enemy of both his past, present and future.

    If Edo State Government now decides to take Education out of our reach what does it portray ?????

    Moreso, the continuous shut down of College of Education Ekiadolor, College of Agriculture Igurorakhi, School of Nursing Benin City and Tayo Akpata University is highly condemnable and punishable by God.

    While College of Education Igueben, school of Health Technology Sapele Road, Edo State Polytechnic USEN, and Ambrose Alli University Ekpoma which has kept on strangulating Students off their resources without close monitoring by the Government with astronomical school charges just to keep these Institutions running at the expense of our poor parents. This is also very highly condemnable and punishable by the Almighty God.

    However, comrades and Leaders of the armless Aluta forces... We put it to the State Government that the rising insecurity, poverty, cyber crime and depression causing death especially among young people is largely as a result of the shutting down of most Higher Institutions in the State.

    If only the Government can get them working, small, medium and large scale businesses will thrive thereby creating employment opportunities for both the Host and neighboring communities where these Institutions are located among other economic benefits. For instance the University of Benin has been of economic importance to its host community and Benin city at large while Edo State University, Iyahmo which is neither a private nor public Institution yet is being funded with hard-earned tax payers money. This is also highly condemnable and punishable by God.

    Sequel to the above, our demands are:

    1. That Edo State Government should on or before seventy two hours (72hrs) publicly address Edo State students regarding the State of our Tertiary Institutions with a feasible date to end the above challenges by setting up a working committee we have to be part of for effective service delivery.

    2. That the law establishing Tayo Akpata University be repealed. If the Government is interested in a degree awarding Institution, the College of Education, Ekiadolor can be upgraded to a dual mode status or affiliated to a state own University like Ambrose Alli University (AAU) to be able to award a degree.

    3. We demand that immediate measures be put in place to check and forestall incidence of police brutality in the State particularly the wanton arrest and torture of innocent Students and Youth by the State Anti-Cultism department of the Police command in Edo State.

    4. That Edo State Government should begins the process for the payment of Bursary for indigenous Students. Also, Communities in the oil-producing local government areas of Edo State, comprising of Orhionmwon, Ikpoba-Okha and Ovia North-East have done nothing in terms of Bursary, scholarship or grant for Youth and Students under the supervision of Edo State Oil and Gas Producing Areas Development Commission (EDSOGPADEC), as indigenes in the communities like our counterpart in Delta, Rivers, Akwa Ibom etc.. Especially to children with disable parents and children with disabilities in our Tertiary Institutions.

    Your Excellency, "What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander" it is our hope that we will be able to achieve most of our demands without resorting to confrontation. But if these demands are not met on or before the expiration of SEVENTY TWO HOURS (72hrs) we shall not hesitate to Mobilize the over 1.4 million teeming Nigerian Students across the State and South South Zone in condemnation of the poor state of Tertiary Institutions cum Students welfare in Edo State.
