The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), has emphatically declared that no political campaign will hold in Nigeria if the ASUU strike is not called off.
The Chairman, NANS National Taskforce, Ojo Olumide made the statement at a press conference on Wednesday, in Abeokuta Ogun state.
With just a few days remaining to the official date for candidates to kick off their campaign as announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the NANS has declared that “no campaign will hold if the ASUU strike is not called off”.
“Our blocking of access to public roads and ports is just a warning. If the government fails to conclude all the negotiations and agreement with ASUU within the frame of two weeks, they will witness more protests and rallies all over the country, they will also witness the annoyance, anger, and frustration of Nigerians Students who have been at home for the past seven months.
“As we promise them that we will not allow any political campaign to hold across the country until we are back to class. This government has pushed so many Nigerian students into depression. We say enough is enough; we can no longer bear the brunt of this avoidable crisis in our nation’s public ivory towers again,” he said.
The Academic Staff Union of Universities has been on strike since February 14, 2022, as talks between the Federal Government and lecturers of public universities broke down.
