NANS condemns UniAbuja ASUU strike

The national leadership of the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, has called for an end to the strike action by a section of the University of Abuja chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.

In a statement by the National President of NANS, Comrade Lucky Emonefe, on Monday, the striking lecturers were urged to see reasons and resume work immediately.

He said that it was saddening that ASUU always ignores the interests and plight of Nigerian students and parents before opting for their actions.

Emonefe noted that NANS will support the federal government and the University of Abuja Management of our understanding and support should they take appropriate steps and measures to bring the infamous strike to an end.

He said, “Our position is that gone are the days when staff of tertiary institutions (both teaching and non teaching) would so cavalierly down tools and refuse to work, rather than dialogue and amicably resolve grievances.

“The lack of sensitivity and regards for students, parents, and the education system, is unacceptable and unbecoming of an otherwise union of intellectuals who should have known better. Strike actions in our institutions only disrupt, derail and destroy, but never address any problems.

“Just consider that between 2020 and 2023 the Nigerian university system has lost over 16 months to ASUU strikes. This is the height of insensitivity.

“We wonder why ASUU always embarks on strike actions at the least prompting when other options of dispute resolutions are open for considerations.”
