The National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS has given the Federal Government till January 5th, 2021 to resolve its standoff with the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.

NANS while describing the ongoing strike action as the longest so far, said in Katsina state that it would mobilise its members to block all federal highways indefinitely at the end of the ultimatum until the issue is resolved.

President of NANS, Sunday Asefon, who addressed a news conference after a visit to the rescued Kankara schoolboys, noted that it is ridiculous that government and ASUU have not found a common ground yet, and this is leaving the students with no other alternative than to do everything within their power to bring an end to this strike.

They also required the inclusion of students’ representatives on the negotiating team so that no one will come out of the meeting and deny anything.
