The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has given the Buhari-led government till January 5, 2021, to resolve its impasse with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
According to the student body, the ongoing strike action by ASUU is the longest so far, adding that it would mobilise its members to block all Federal highways indefinitely at the end of the ultimatum until the issue is resolved.
The President of NANS Comrade Sunday Asefon, while addressing a press conference after a visit to the rescued Kankara school boys said that, “it is ridiculous that government and ASUU have not found a common ground yet and this is leaving us with no other alternative than to do everything within our power to bring an end to this strike.
“If by January 5, 2022, there is no resolution, we will take take strategic actions including mobilising all students from all over the country to march on the streets and block all Federal roads indefinitely.”
