NANS to go on indefinite strike as from Monday
The National Association of Nigerian Students, (NANS), has vowed to embark on sustained, indefinite nationwide protest on August 21 should ASUU and the Federal Government fail to reach a compromise and call off the strike.
It described the Federal Government’s attitude towards the education sector as sardonic and satanic.
Its Senate President, Comrade Taiwo Bamigbade, said after due consultation with various Students Union Government that constitute the Senate Arm of National Association of Nigerian Students, the association agreed to embark on a national protest.
He said: “When we commence the protest on Monday, we will not stop until ASUU and the Federal Government resolve the issue and call of the strike.
“We have agreed that all Students Union Governments in various institutions would join forces to begin the national protest, if by Sunday the Federal Government fails to reach at a compromise with the leadership of ASUU.”
According to him, the Students Union Government President of each state would anchor the protest.
He said further: ‘’we are resolute in our quest to secure and protect our future from being ruined. There is no going back in our struggle to emancipate Nigerian students from the shackles of oppressions.’’
However, investigations revealed that some universities did not fully comply to the ASUU directive.
