Students of public and state universities in the country have been ordered by the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) to commence street protests against the continued strike action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
The directive was issued on Friday by NANS president, Comrade Sunday Asefon in a statement made available to DAILY GIST
He told the students to carry their cooking pots, mattresses, and other items and occupy the streets of Abuja, the nation’s capital city.
The directive was contained in a letter titled, ‘Urgent Notice Of Immediate Commencement Of Mobilisation,’ dated March 25, 2022, and addressed to the zonal coordinators of the union.
It would be recalled that ASUU under the leadership of Professor Emmanuel Osodeke had declared a one-month warning strike on February 14, 2022, over what it termed the failure of the federal government to address its demands and agreements.
ASUU then extend the nationwide strike by two months on March 14tg after inconclusive meeting with the federal government
