ASUU Strike: NANS Mobilises Students For Nationwide Protest (News Central TV)

The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, is planning a two-day protest in support of the Academic Staff Union of Universities’ (ASU) striking members, and the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, has stated that it will support this action (ASUU).

Comrade Sunday Asefon, the president of NANS, announced this in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja.

He praised the NLC leadership for their resolve and resolve to work with well-meaning Nigerians to support the end of the lengthy ASUU strike.

He said, “While NANS has organised various protests in the past with no substantial results, also our advocacy and consultation has not yielded any desirable result. We have activated political solution and we are very hopeful that an end is in the purview.

“However, we are in total support of the planned protest by NLC as we believe this will stem up the advocacy and assist in no mean measure to put adequate pressure on the Federal Government to do all that is required to stop the strike.

“I, therefore, direct all NANS structures across the country to mobilise and join NLC protest. NANS will only be involved in the mobilization of students to the protest sites and will act based on the direction provided by the NLC. NANS structures across the country shall submit to the leadership of NLC all through the protest.”

Meanwhile, Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, to bring the prolonged industrial action embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and other university-based unions to a halt.

Buhari gave the directive Tuesday after receiving reports from the relevant government Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs) involved in the ongoing efforts to resolve the face-off with the university unions.
