School Reopening: NANS Urges Federal Govt, ASUU To Negotiate
With the reopening of schools in some states in the country, the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has come out to support the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in it’s negotiation with federal government regarding the ongoing strike.
NANS President Danielson Akpan came out to reveal the Union’s stand while speaking with newsmen.
According to Akpan, ASUU embarked on an indefinite strike because of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) issue, and failure of the government to fulfill other agreements reached with ASUU.
University students have been at home for over 5months due to the industrial action by the academic staff and the decision of the National University Commission (NUC) to shut down all schools over the coronavirus pandemic.
