Count us out of strike, ASUU’s faction, CONUA declare.
Asefon commended the leadership of the NLC for their steadfastness and
commitment to join forces with well-meaning Nigerians to advocate for the
end of the protracted ASUU strike.
“While NANS has organised various protests in the past with no
substantial results, also our advocacy and consultation has not yielded
any desirable result. We have activated political solution and we are
very hopeful that an end is in the purview,” he said.
He added:“However, we are in total support of the planned protest by NLC
as we believe this will stem up the advocacy and assist in no mean measure
to put adequate pressure on the Federal Government to do all that is
required to stop the strike.”
“I, therefore, direct all NANS structures across the country to
mobilise and join NLC protest.
” NANS will only be involved in the mobilization of students to the
protest sites and will act based on the direction provided by the
” NANS structures across the country shall submit to the leadership of
NLC all through the protest,”he further said.
