Strike: ASUU blows hot on NANS for threating to withdraw support

Breaking: ASUU extends strike again

Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, the chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has slammed the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS).

Recall that the NANS leadership had threatened to stop supporting ASUU and the strike action it embarked on since February.

Reacting to NANS’s threat, Osodeke who appeared on Channels Television’s Politics Today programme on Tuesday, Osodoke stated that NANS had never supported ASUU’s course.

He stated that what the students’ leadership does is hobnob with politicians.

He said, “The question is, has his group ever supported the struggle for Nigerian students? Any day students and parents take over this struggle, we will not have this problem. Has his set ever supported any of the programmes, apart from running from one government office to another? So, leave that one alone; go and ask the ordinary student on the street, not those leaders.”

Meanwhile, the University of Lagos has restated its commitment to the ongoing ASUU strike.

A statement signed on Tuesday by the Chairperson of the branch, Dele Ashiru, read in part, “The attention of the leadership of ASUU-UNILAG has been drawn to a fake and dubious news purporting that ‘ASUU-UNILAG chapter gives up for the first time, votes for suspension of strike.’

“This is to inform the general public that the strike in UNILAG is still in force and there is no threat to it whatsoever.

“ASUU-UNILAG is convinced that the strike action is a just and patriotic struggle to save the public university system in Nigeria from imminent collapse.”
