As the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) remains at an impasse with the federal government on the issue of the ongoing indefinite strike, the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) is calling on the parties to engage in constructive engagement.
NANS convened an emergency meeting in which they urged both bodies to engage”with a human face to resolve the lingering issues”that led to the declaration of the strike to save the education sector. According to NAN, the students body decried the incessant and prolonged strike as one of factors responsible for the falling standard of education in Nigeria.
Comrade Chinonso Obasi, the president of NANS said the lack of agreements or lack of adherence and implementation of duly executed memorandum of agreements between the FG and ASUU does not reflect and demonstrate commitment to the sustainable development of the nation’s education sector and the development of the nation’s human capital development.
According to reports, NANS asked the government to resolve the crisis in 21 days or face the wrath of youths across the country.
