NANS Ask Students to Occupy Abuja Streets as Protest begins

Being a student of a non-private University has always been problematic from time but the hope was that it was going to be better. However, that hope, that little light that signifies the hope students have had is barely a flicker now.

With all the issues in the country right now, as a student you also have to deal with the regular battle between the Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

On February 14, ASUU announced they were going on strike for a month. When the month was up on March 14, the union extended the strike by another 2 months. The President of the Union, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, said the strike was extended to give the Federal Government time to meet ASUU’s demands.

Now, the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) on Friday announced the start of their protest. The Association asked students to occupy the streets of Abuja with their mattresses protesting the ASUU strike.

Earlier this month, NANS had passed a vote of no confidence in the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige; and the Ministry of Education, Adamu Adamu, to continue to lead the government’s negotiation team.

“They are either incompetent to engage productively with ASUU at the highest level or they lack the goodwill and trust to build consensus and find an amicable resolution,” ASUU said.
