Strike: NANS give ASSU, FG January 5 ultimatum
By Eunice Peter
National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS has given between now and January 5, 2021 to both the Federal Government and Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU resolve their differences and end the long-overdue strike.
NANS National President, Comrade Sunday Asefon, threatened that if both parties don’t agree by the given date, the association would take strategic actions.
The union made this disclosure on Sunday, 20 December 2020 in a press statement made available to IDEALPOSTS.
The union President, “The Federal Government and ASUU will face the students and tell us why we have to suffer this much”
Asefon said the ongoing strike is the longest in the history of the university in Nigeria. He explained that the strike has been long enough to be called off saying it is ridiculous that both the FG and ASUU have not found a common ground yet.
The unending nature of the strike the president noted has left students with no choice but to do all it can to bring an end to the strike.
Asefon also noted that NANS should have a third party representative in every FG and ASSU meeting for posterity sake and transparency in leadership.
The student union president again expressed delight over the safe release of the 344 abducted schoolboys in Kankara, Katsina State.
He said The welfare and safety of Nigerian students across all the 36 states and diaspora is one of his priorities and as long as he remains the revolutionary President of NANS.
