Ghen Ghen: No reopening of universities, no presidential primaries, NANS warns FG over ASUU Strike [Details]

The National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, has said it will not allow political parties to hold their presidential primaries if the face-off between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, is not settled.

Universities in the country are currently shut down due to strike action by lecturers who claim the Federal Government has failed to meet their agreement.

Speaking with Vanguard, the National President, Sunday Asefon, lamented that politicians are going about their ambition for 2023 while students are left to idle away at home.

“We are still on our demands that the government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU and other staff unions resolve their differences and reopen our universities that have been shut down for about three months.

“We are also saying that we won’t allow any political party to hold their presidential primary in Abuja unless Nigerian students are back to their various campuses. They cannot continue to idle away and waste precious time because some people have refused to do the needful,” he said.
