It expressed disappointment over the outcome of the last meeting between the ASUU and the Federal Government, which ended in stalemate.
The National Public Relations Officer of the association, Comrade Okereafor Bestman Opeyemi made this known on Wednesday, through a press release he sent to DAILY POST.
According to the statement “The attention of the apex students’ governing body, National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, has been drawn to the outcome of the last meeting between ASUU and FG which ended in stalemate despite our series of plea to both parties.
“NANS have widely consulted and equally consolidated on the over 2-month old strike and left with no option than to use the third C of aluta which is confrontation.
“We consider this strike that has negatively affected Nigerian Students as a deliberate attempt to disenfranchise Nigerian Students in the forthcoming general elections, which will be completely resisted, knowing fully well that millions of Nigerian students registered in the campus environments.
“In view of this, NANS presidency is fully supporting the largest zone in NANS, ZONE B, led by Okereke Godson C Bishop’s decision to resist the continued strike by relocating the Secretariat of NANS to the very busy Niger Bridge on the 30th of January, 2019. This shall be extended to other zones until our students are returned to campus.
“Finally, we are joining our voice with ASUU in calling on the FG to consider replacing Wale Babalakin with immediate effect, as the head of the renegotiation team, as this team is yet to yield any fruitful result so far”.
