NANS set for nationwide protest over ongoing ASUU and ASUP strike

The National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, has issued a notice to all its structures and organs to commence mobilisation for mass action against the Federal Government, the Academic Staff Union of Universities-ASUU and the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics-ASUP.

This was contained in a statement signed by the association’s President, Danielson Akpan who blamed the parties involved of not making appreciable steps in resolving the crises.

Akpan accused the university lecturers of not showing enough commitment to end the strike, saying they staged a walk-out during negotiations with the government despite the latter meeting two out of their three demands which includes the non-payment of some academic staff salaries shortfall, non-release of operational license for Nigerian Universities Pension Management Company and non-payment of earned academic allowances.

The ASUU commenced a nationwide strike on November 4 2018 after lecturers accused the federal government of not implementing previous agreements.
