A statement by NANS’ President, Mr. ChinonsoObasi says the call was part of the resolutions at the association’s emergency meeting on the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
NANS also declared that as critical stakeholders in the education sector, it was imperative that ASUU consults with it before embarking on any strike in the future as the interest of students must be considered and prioritized at all times.
According to Mr. Obasi, part of the resolution was that an appeal should be made to the Federal Government to channel the recovered loots to education sector.
He said that because of the prevailing economic situation,NANS resolved to stay action on the planned mass protest over government’s inability to resolve the ongoing strike within twenty-one days.
MrObasistated that the Senate was of the opinion that dialogue was the only panacea for resolving issues especially at this period of agitations across the country.
