The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has begun its mobilisation of students for the solidarity protest by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC).
The labour congress had announced a two-day solidarity protest, slated for July 26 and 27, 2022, in consideration of the lingering ASUU Strike.
Hence, NANS, having tuned in to participate in solidarity action with ASUU, have called on all all students across the country to prepare to join.
The statement was issued by NANS president, Comrade Sunday Asefon, in Abuja on Wednesday.
“While NANS has organised various protests in the past with no substantial results, also our advocacy and consultation has not yielded any desirable result. We have activated political solution and we are very hopeful that an end is in the purview.
“However, we are in total support of the planned protest by NLC as we believe this will stem up the advocacy and assist in no mean measure to put adequate pressure on the Federal Government to do all that is required to stop the strike.”
“I, therefore, direct all NANS structures across the country to mobilise and join NLC protest.
“NANS will only be involved in the mobilization of students to the protest sites and will act based on the direction provided by the NLC.
“NANS structures across the country shall submit to the leadership of NLC all through the protest,” he said.
