The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), has called on the Federal Government to fulfill agreements reached with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), to ensure resumption of academic activities in public universities. The NANS National Public Relations Officer, Mr Bestman Okereafor, made theisappeal in a statement issued on Sunday in Enugu.
The statement states that the attention of the association has been drawn to the position of ASUU and the condition the union has given for the suspension of the srike and called on the Federal Government to fulfil its part pf the agreement without further delay since ASUU had vowed that the ongoing strike would not be called off until the Federal Government fulfills all the agreements both parties reached in their last meeting.
“NANS salutes ASUU for negotiating and reaching an agreement during her last meeting with the Federal Government delegation. “We believe they (ASUU) have done honourable,’’ Okereafor said.
According to him, NANS is passionately appealing to the Federal Government to fulfill its part of the agreements reached with ASUU in the best interest of Nigerian students without further delay.
