The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan has appealed to students through the National Association of Nigerian Students not to disrupt political activities. He made this appeal to the NANS President – Sunday Ashefon, during his visit to the senate office on Tuesday.

Students already staged protests in different parts of the country threatening to sabotage all political activities until the government makes an agreement with the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, to call off the strike.

Lawan implored students to continue on the path of consultation and avoid confrontation.

I want to advise, I don’t think it will be necessary to disrupt political activities. We should not do that and we don’t need to do that, he said.
What we need to do is to continue to follow the path of consultation, consolidation and avoid confrontation. It is when you emphasize consultation, that it’s much easier for us to find something that you can consolidate.

Lawan assured the students that the Senate will do its possible best to ensure they return to school as soon as possible.

“Your prayer is that you want the Federal government and ASUU to negotiate and resolve the issues. We have taken this prayer and have endorsed it and we will work on it as quickly as possible,” he added.

He used the opportunity to make a plea to ASUU, asking them to suspend the strike for a certain period and create a window for negotiation.
