Nasarawa Speaker Sympathizes With State Government, NSUK, Families Of Deceased Students

Speaker of the Nasarawa State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Danladi Jatau, has sympathized with the families of students that lost their lives and those that sustained different kinds of injuries due to the stampede at Nasarawa State University, Keffi during palliative distribution in the institution.

The Speaker also identified with the State Government and the management of the State University Keffi over the incident.

This is contained  in a statement he personally signed and made available to newsmen today (March 22, 2024) in Lafia.

Rt. Hon. Jatau said that the palliative distribution initiated by Gov. Abdullahi Sule was a good initiative but the House was sad over the stampede that led to the death of some students while others were injured.

“We have received with shock the news of a stampede at the Nasarawa State University, Keffi today.

“On behalf of principal officers and honourable members, I want to sympathize with the families of those that lost their lives and those that were injured as a result of the stampede.

“The House regrets the death of some students and may their souls rest in peace,” he said

The Speaker urged the parents of the victims and other people of the State to remain calm over the incident.

The Speaker commended the State Government for initiating a move to find out the cause of the stampede which is attempting to spoil its good intention to bring succour to the students.

Jatau assured the management of the Nasarawa State University Keffi of government intention to continue to roll out packages that will bring relief to students of the institution with full backing from the State Assembly.

It would be reported that on Friday, March 22, 2024, the sad incident was reported to have occurred when suspected hoodlums and some misguided students forced their way into the school’s convocation ground to cart away the rice kept at the venue meant for distribution as palliatives to students.

It would also be reported that the misfortune happened only hours before the scheduled official flag-off same morning, today, Friday.

It would be further reported that Engr. Sule had come up with the widely applauded initiative to distribute rice and N5000 cash each to students in all tertiary institutions in the State.
