NANS Threatens To Shut Down Private Varsities If ASUU Strike Persists

The newly-elected president of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Comrade Sunday Asefon has warned that private universities may be shut down if the lingering strike by members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) remains unresolved for much longer.

He noted however that the union will first try to mediate between the federal government and ASUU with a view to resolving the disagreements but if this move fails, then private universities will be shut down by the students association.

Asefon who lamented that the current ASUU strike is the longest in recent times, made his position known during a Punch online interview programme, The Roundtable

According to the NANS president, it is their wish that all parties will consider those negatively affected by the strike action as soon as possible but if this is not achieved, NANS would shut down all tertiary institutions in the country.
