The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has urged the federal government and Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to sit down at the negotiating table to avoid another strike.
The group also appealed to ASUU and federal government to sheath their sword in the interest of the Nigerian students and work together to ensure continuity in the academic calendar so as to improve the quality of education in tertiary institutions.
The call was made by the President of NANS, Comrade Sunday Asefon while speaking at the 2021 International Students’ Day held at the Federal Polytechnic, Bauchi on Wednesday.
He added that strike action has not brought anything good to the education sector of the country. stressing that students in Nigeria have multifaceted challenges ranging from insecurity, inadequate funding, instability arising from incessant strike actions, quality of pedagogy, research and output along others.
