In response to the elongated ASUU strike, the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has enjoined students to occupy the streets of Abuja with their cooking pots, mattresses and others, as they protest against the ASUU Strike.
The President of NANS, Sunday Asefon, revealed this in a letter dated March 25, 2022 to zonal coordinators of the union.
According to the letter, which was titled, ‘Urgent Notice Of Immediate Commencement Of Mobilisation’, the protest was necessary since the ultimatum previously issued by NANS yielded no results.
“Sequel to our ultimatum issued to Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities to find lasting solution to their face-off for our university to reopen on or before 28th March 2022.
“With no hope in sight for resumption of academic activities on our campuses, you are by this notice directed to commence immediately, mass mobilization of students to resume their academic activities on the newly created University of Street, Abuja.
“Students are enjoined to come along with their cooking utensils, mattresses, mosquito-treated net and other needed logistics to make the stay conducive as the protest may last longer than expected until campuses are reopened.
“The Coordinator of NANS Zone C, Abah Owoicho has been appointed as Registrar of the New University of Abuja Street and coordinator of the mass occupational protest.
“While looking forward to your swift consideration for immediate action, please accept our regards,” the letter read.
