ASUU Strike:NANS Gives FG 21 Days To Make A Move.

on

The National Association of Nigerian Students
has called on the Federal Government to look
into the plight of the Academic Staff Union of
Universities to avert the indefinite strike.
Mr Chinonso Obasi, National President, NANS
made the call in a statement made available to
newsmen in Abuja on Monday.
“It is with deep pain and regret that NANS
received the news of another indefinite strike by
ASUU over the Federal Government’s
indifference to their plight.
“Nigerian students see the break down in
negotiations as a further proof that political
leaders don’t care about their
future. Consequently, we wish to call on the
Federal Government to do all it can to get ASUU
back to the classrooms.
” Consequently, we wish to call on the Federal
Government to do all it can to get ASUU back to
the classrooms.
“The demands of ASUU are reasonable and
touch on the integrity of government, especially
in the light of the fight against corruption,” he
said.
According to him, NANS finds it hard to believe
that past governments would fail to honour
agreements with members of ASUU for more
than seven years.
Obasi, however, said the association in the light
of the foregoing gave the Federal Government
21 days to resolve outstanding issues with
ASUU in the interest of long-suffering Nigerian
students.
He explained that the students would be forced
to bear the brunt of the break down in the
negotiation between the union and the
government.
He added that NANS would be meeting in the
coming week with leaders of ASUU to find out
their irreducible minimum in their demands.
He threatened that if by the expiration of 21days
ultimatum, the issue was not resolved, Nigerian
students would be forced to ground activities in
the country.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that ASUU
on Monday officially announced the
commencement of its nationwide industrial
actions at a news conference held in Abuja.
