Nigerians seem to be channeling all their anger at the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS after the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU declared a four weeks warning strike.
The President of ASUU, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, declared a “comprehensive and total” strike at a press conference on Monday, February 14, 2022.
He said, “NEC resolved to embark on the four-week roll-over total and comprehensive strike as the government has failed to implement the Memorandum of Action it signed with the ASUU in December 2020.

“We invite all lovers of education to join our struggle for a greater Nigeria. Nigerian politicians keep proliferating educational institutions without prioritising education. ASUU will not relent in its historic responsibility of advocating an improved university system”.
“This is because it holds the key to our collective prosperity and better future for our children and our children’s children; so, let us work together to fix it.”
NANS, the umbrella body of all students’ organizations in Nigeria and in the diaspora, however, seem to be taking the heat for this decision.
Many have asked for reasons the association has been unable to wade in and avert the persistent clashes between the federal government and the University lecturers.
