The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has issued a noticed to all its structures and organs to commence mobilization for mass action against the federal government, the Academic Staff Union of Universities, and the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics.
Based on ASUU nationwide strike and the Federal Government unresponsiveness and the association had earlier issued an ultimatum of two weeks to FG, ASUU, and ASUP on December 23, to call off the strike or face confrontation, the NANS has therefore issued a notice for the commencement of mass action against all parties.
Mr. Akpan accused the university lecturers of not showing enough commitment to end the strike, saying they staged a workout during negotiations with the government despite the latter meeting two out of their three demands.
The three major issues, the NANS leader said, include the non-payment of some academic staff salaries shortfall, non-release of operational license for NUPEMCO (Nigerian Universities Pension Management Company), and non-payment of earned academic allowances.
ASUP which doesn’t improve lots of Nigerian students arises,” Mr. Akpan said.
He urged all structures and organs of the NANS to begin meetings and mobilization immediately ahead of the mass action commencing on January 7, 2019.
