NANS Demands Immediate End to UniAbuja ASUU Strike.


The National leadership of the national association of Nigerian students (NANS) has called for an end to the strike action by a section of the academic staff union of universities (ASUU), university of Abuja branch.

The student body made the call in a statement signed by its national president, comrade Lucky Emonefe. He urged the striking lecturers to see reasons and resume work immediately.

Emonefe said it is saddening that ASUU always ignores the interests and plight of Nigerian students and parents before opting for their actions.

The NANS president commended lecturers who are members of the national association of medical and dental academics (NAMDA) and the congress of Nigerian universities academics (CONUA) for rejecting the strike.

He also commended the house of representatives committee on university education for their prompt intervention in the matter and their call on the striking lecturers to return to work.

Emonefe noted that NANS will support the federal government and the university of Abuja management to take appropriate steps and measures to bring the infamous strike to an end.

The statement read, in part, “Our position is that gone are the days when staff of tertiary institutions (both teaching and non- teaching) would so cavalierly down tools and refuse to work, rather than dialogue and amicably resolve grievances. The lack of sensitivity and regards for students, parents, and the education system, is unacceptable and unbecoming of an otherwise union of intellectuals who should have known better. Strike actions in our institutions only disrupt, derail and destroy, but never address any problems.”
