The President Of Nigerian Student Association Of Nigeria, (NANS), Comrade Sunday Asefon has said they will occupy the streets of Abuja, if the Federal government would not settle with the Academic Staff Union Of Universities (ASUU) over the ongoing Strike.
Following the extension of the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, the leadership of the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, has threatened to return to the streets of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja to show their frustration to the federal government.
Nigerian students have spent over a month at home since the commencement of the strike, and a protest organised by the national body of NANS was put off after the government appealed to the students, promising to open a fresh negotiation with the ASUU leadership.
In an exclusive chat with Legit.ng, NANS president, Comrade Sunday Asefon said:
“This means the Nigerian students will now return to the streets, particularly, we should all mobilize to Abuja. They should all come with their cooking materials, mattresses, food, and other things and permanently lock down Abuja streets.
“We will now resume school in Abuja since our schools are under lock and key. We can’t fold our arms for another two months.
“If you add the two months with the one month we have spent so far, it will be over a semester. We cannot continue this way. Like I have always said, after the whole strike, ASUU will still be paid. Salary for ASUU last month was paid. Who will pay the Nigerian students for the loss?”
Asefon further revealed that maybe, students should start contributing money and support the government if they don’t have money to meet lecturers’ demands
