ASUU strike: Why we stopped protests – NANS



ASUU Strike - Students protesting

NATIONAL Association of Nigeria Students (NANS) has explained why it has suspended its nationwide protest over the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

  The leadership of the association accused the Federal Government of sabotaging the genuine protests to compel the lecturers to reopen public universities.

  ASUU on February 14 embarked on a one – month strike which it later rolled into two months.

  At the end of the two months strike, the university lecturers announced another three months strike to enable the government to address its demands.

  Some of the demands included the non – implementation of the 2009 agreement, failure of the government to deploy the University Transparency and Accountability Solution payment software among others.

  NANS Senate President, Chuks Okafor, in a statement said: “In the area of ASUU strike. We have done our best in liasing with government agencies but we can only take the horse to the stream but you cannot force it. But as leadership of Nigerian students, we will keep reaching out to the government and leadership of ASUU to ensure this strike is called off soonest.”
