The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has said it supports the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in its negotiations with Federal Government regarding the ongoing strike.
NANS President Danielson Akpan on behalf of Nigerian students told The Nation Newspapers that ASUU embarked on an indefinite strike not only because of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) issue, but because government had not fulfilled other agreements reached with ASUU.
“We cannot be against ASUU because we have urged government to meet up with the agreements reached with them. We followed up and played our part, but government didn’t comply. In fact, it is not only ASUU that is on strike, COEASU is on strike too,” he said.
