The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has appealed to the Federal Government to fulfill agreements reached with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), to ensure resumption of academic activities in public universities.
NANS National Public Relations Officer, Mr Bestman Okereafor, made the appeal in a statement issued on Sunday in Enugu obtained by ElombahNews.
The statement reads in part:
“The attention of the apex students governing body, NANS, has been drawn to the recent ASUU position and condition for suspension of the ongoing strike embarked upon by the union.
“NANS is also on the know that 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.
Mr. Okereafor passionately charged the Federal Government to fulfill its part of the agreements reached with ASUU in the best interest of Nigerian students without further delay.
