Members of the South East zone of the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, and their counterparts in Ogun and Oyo in the South West region have given the federal government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, a nine-day ultimatum to open all public universities in Nigeria.

They lamented that the strike embarked upon by ASUU and other unions had not received the sincere attention of the federal government.

ASUU had extended its three-month old warning strike by yet another three months. The union had embarked on a nationwide warning strike on February 14, 2022.

The industrial action was aimed at pressing home its demands which include revitalisation of public universities, earned academic allowances and the deployment of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution for payment of university lecturers.
