The President, National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, Comrade Sunday Asefon, on Thursday, accused Nigerian leaders of ignoring the plights of Students who are at the receiving end of the ongoing strike action embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.
Comrade Asefon who also said that the leaders have diverted attention to the 2023 general elections, reassured that his Union would disrupt the forthcoming primary elections of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, if the industrial action is not called off.
He spoke during the breakfast programme of the Channels Television ‘Sunrise Daily,’ accusing the Federal Government of a lack of commitment and sincerity in resolving the impasse between it and the striking university workers.
The NANS President who equally threatened that the University of the Streets protest which kicked off at the University of Benin on Wednesday would spread nationwide, also said “If we fail to fight now, our unborn generation will inherit this problem. ASUU strike is over 40 years in our university system and no government has been able to find a solution to it.
