NANS threatens confrontation against ASUU over strike Action
Written by News Room on February 14, 2022
The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has rejected the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU)’s decision to embark on a four-week strike to compel the Nigerian government to accede to its requests.
The union threatened to embark on actions including confrontation to make sure that the strike is suspended and students and lecturers go back to classes.
Following a marathon meeting that lasted through the weekend at the University of Lagos, (UNILAG) Akoka, ASUU declared a four-week warning strike starting from Monday, February 14, 2022, to protest the government’s failure to implement its agreement with the union.
Speaking to newsmen on Monday, NANS President, Asefon Sunday, lamented that the Nigerian students are always at the receiving end of the skirmishes between the government and ASUU.
The union said the impact of the last nine-month strike suspended in December 2020 by the union is still being felt across universities.
