[Abuja]– The National Association of Nigeria Students have called upon President Muhammadu Buhari to establish special anti corruption courts to fight corruption cases in the tertiary institutions.

The call was made by NANS President, Chinonso Obasi, while speaking to pressmen in Abuja, on March 12, 2017.

The President who had declared special prayers for the President before his arrival, said he thanked God for answering the prayers of over 40 million Nigerian students for the safe arrival of the President.

He requested that the President shed the anti corruption light on the tertiary institutions, by establishing anti-graft agencies and anti corruption courts.

While he said that the body will submit an an anti corruption report to the President, he mentioned that students have often been marginalized, as such, left to suffer the high level of corruption cases in tertiary institutions.

“The urgent appeal I am making to Mr President, which is why we prayed for him to recover and come back, is to urgently order the anti-graft agencies to beam their searchlight on our tertiary institutions.

“We have done a lot of work underground; any time within the week, we will be submitting our report on anti-corruption war we have been fighting.

“We believe so much that he will swing into action.”

“We are pleading with Mr President to set up a special anti-corruption court; there is no gainsaying, we are fighting corruption and people found guilty keep on appealing,’’ he said.
