NANS Stages Peaceful Protest In Kano Over ASUU Strike

The National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, on Monday staged a peaceful protest in Kano State, against the on-going strike of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.

The association had threatened to hold peaceful protests across the country and also institute a legal action against the union if it failed to call off its four-months-old strike action.



    “We want ASUU to accept the N130 billion offered by the Federal Government since there is room for further negotiations. ASUU is not being fair on its demands; it’s time to let the whole world know that their demands are unrealistic,” President of NANS, Yinka Gbadebo, said.

    He noted that the lingering strike had negatively affected students across the country and also appealed to the governor of the State, Rabi’u Kwankwaso, to intervene in efforts to persuade ASUU call off its strike.

    “I want to appeal to our father, Governor Rabi’u Kwankwaso, to intervene in this lingering crisis by prevailing on Dr Nasir Fagge to call off the strike. We also hope Dr Fagge will assist us by talking to all ASUU members to return to the classroom,” he said.

    Hundreds of university students staged the peaceful demonstration at the premises of the Federal College of Education, FCT, Kano and security personnel were on hand to monitor the protest to guard against any breakdown of law and order.
