ASUU Strike: NANS to engage ASUU and FG

ASUU Strike: NANS to engage ASUU and FG

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) on Monday said it would engage the Academic Staff Union of Universities and the Federal Government with a view to prevailing on them to end the nine-month-old strike embarked on by ASUU.

NANS described the strike as “ridiculous” but expressed optimism that its consultation with both parties would yield a positive result.

Sunday Asefon, the new President of NANS, stated these in Abuja during his maiden press conference which came after his electoral victory.

According to Asefon, NANS under his administration would fight against arbitrary expulsion, suspension, and rustication of students for dissent and peaceful protest.

He said, “Again, I assure Nigerian students of my resolve to do all within my abilities to protect our interests, place the interest and welfare of Nigerian students above all considerations and reposition our association to take its rightful place in the center of our nation’s polity.

“To this end, I will immediately set out to engage stakeholders within the educational sector to add our strong voice against the overstayed ASUU strike. We will be consulting with the representatives of the Federal Government and ASUU with the aim of prevailing on them to find a center point for an amicable resolution to ensure we return to school.

“The engagement is going to be now and not later. ASUU strike started before the COVID-19 pandemic. We are convinced that this high-level consultation will yield a positive result and we will not have to resort to mobilizing students to mount any protest to this ridiculous long stay at home. NANS under our watch, will not be complicit to such unending strike, and never again will Nigerian students have to stay home this long.”

The National Association of Nigerian Students also distanced itself from the second phase of the #EndSARS protests. “We are not going to be part of any protest that doesn’t have leadership. We are not part of #RevolutionNow,” Asefon stated.
