» NANS threatens to shut down private universities if ASUU strike persists


President of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Sunday Asefon, has vowed to shut down all private universities in the country if the disagreement between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is not resolved soon.

NANS threatens to shut down private universities if ASUU strike persists

The NANS president made this known during an online interview. He mentioned that the student body will engage the Federal Government representatives and ASUU leaders to find a lasting solution to the lingering strike.

While stressing that students are at the receiving end of the impasse, the student leader said that the ongoing strike is the longest industrial action embarked on by the university lecturers and called for both parties to shift grounds so that students can go back to the classroom.

“We have three Cs, we have embarked on the first C which is ‘Consultation’ and we are going to ‘Consolidate’ on our ‘Consultation’. We will get to a stage before the end of this year when we will get the two of them seated on a roundtable. We will force the two parties to make a decision because they are toying with the lives of Nigerian students.

“If they fail to resolve the issue, we are going to embark on the third C which is ‘Confrontation’. We are going to shut down all private universities in this country. And after that, we are going to engage in mass action. Because the majority of the children of ASUU (members) and the rich are in private schools and they are not affected. That is why they are toying with the lives of the common Nigerian students,” NANS president stated.
