NANS Gives FG One Week Ultimatum Over ASUU Strike
By Onuminya Ochowechi In Sokoto
National Association of Nigeria Students (NANS) has issued a one week ultimatum to the Federal Government to resolve its disagreement with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) or face a national mass action by all Nigeria students across the country.
President of the students association, Sunday Adedayo revealed this in Sokoto shortly after signing the reviewed Constitution of the association at the Sokoto state government house.
Mr. Adedayo said the students union has given the federal government between now and the 28th of February to meet and resolve the issue with ASUU or face a national mass action by Nigeria students.
He described as unfortunate the attitude of the federal government who he accused of playing hide and seek with ASUU since 1999 they signed the agreement with the academic union.
Mr. Adedayo said the government has bastardized the education system at the primary and secondary level and NANS is not going to open its eyes and watch the government destroy the tertiary education.
NANS is in Sokoto for its constitutional review conference where the association reviewed its forty years Constitution at the Sokoto state University.
The reviewed Constitution was signed at the Sokoto state government house in the present of Sokoto state governor Aminu Tambuwal.
Speaking earlier, Sokoto state governor Aminu Tambuwal appealed to the Academic Staff Union of Universities to find a way of resolving their disagreement without embarking on strike.
Governor Tambuwal also called on the federal government to find a way of meeting the demands of ASUU despite the fact the country is facing economic challenges.
He advised the academic union to find a way of resolving crisis other than strike action that has affected the academic pursuit of Nigeria students.
