How can Buhari who cannot manage his cow farm develop Nigeria? - Atiku

From now on, you must consult us before embarking on strike - NANS orders ASUU

Posted: 11 September, 2017 at 11:50 am

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has been warned against embarking on any future strike action without prior notice, by the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS).

According to Vanguard, the association also urged the federal government to channel recovered loots into the educational sector.

Tyhe group made its comments in a statement released by its president, Chinonso Obasi, in Abuja, on Sunday September 10.

The group insisted that henceforth, it must be consulted by ASUU before they decide on embarking on another strike action.

The statement read in part: “As critical stakeholders in the education sector, it is imperative that ASUU consults NANS.

“Anytime ASUU wants to embark on strike, it is proper for them to consult student leaders led by NANS.

“ASUU should also apply other means of negotiation so that the strike will not have a direct negative impact on the students.

“ASUU has been striking to use students as their bargaining power. The interest of students must be considered and prioritized at all times.

“Part of the resolution was that an appeal should be made to the Federal Government to channel the loots recovered from anti- graft agencies to the education sector.”
