What is NANS saying about the 3 Months ASUU Strike 2022?
NANS PRESIDENT WROTE; 👇
ASUU STRIKE EXTENSION: THE SILENCE OF THE GOVERNMENT AND THE RULING CLASS; THE NATION MUST FEEL THE HEAT.
The 3months extension of the strike is totally condemned. The failure of the government to reach agreement with ASUU underscores their lack of concern and empathy to the plight of the common men and women of our nation who couldn't afford private tertiary institutions.
Having exhausted all window of constructive engagement with the government. I, on behalf of the national leadership of NANS therefore declare National Action from tomorrow 10th.
The National Actions is tagged "Operation Test Run" Operation Test Run shall be held in all the 36 State of the Federation. Federal Roads across the 36 States shall be occupied for a minimum of 3hrs.
The Operation shall be a precursor to a total shutdown that will be decided during our Senate meeting/pre-convention on Saturday 14th May 2022. Our decision from the pre-convention shall be binding. The action shall be total as the extension of the ASUU strike is a direct declaration of war by the Federal Government against university students in Nigeria.
Our proposal to congress on the 14th shall be total blockage of the airport roads across the country and total disruption of political party primaries, blockage of the national assembly until they are committed to passing legislation banning public office holders from sending their children to university abroad.
We therefore advise divisive elements or paid agents of government to stay clear of our actions as the consequences shall be severe.
By this release, all JCC Chairmen, Zonal Leaderships and Stakeholders are directed to act appropriately and ensure total compliance to the directive of "Operation Test Run" Shut down the Federal Roads in Your State, the nation must feel the heat.
I therefore call on NLC, TUC and Civil Society organisation to join us to savage the remaining crackers of our public tertiary education in Nigeria.
Let me assure you, I will lead from the front.
