The President of the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, Chidi Iloegbe has urged the Federal Government to make haste to resolve the lingering issues that have led to the over seven months strike by ASUU so that students can go back to classes; adding that the gains of this resolution cannot be overemphasized.
This was disclosed by the NANS president while he was speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Enugu on Friday on national issues affecting Nigerian students recently
He said: “We urge the Federal Government to resolve all issues with ASUU within the next seven days.
“NANS also calls on the Presidential Taskforce on Covid-19 to quicken the process of releasing the comprehensive protocols that will allow Nigerian tertiary institutions to reopen for lectures.
“We shall within the next few days before transiting to a new team that will carry on from where we stopped vigorously engage the government with a view to finding lasting solutions to these issues’’.
Speaking on students’ alleged involvement in #EndSARS protests, Ilogebe noted that the government and ASUU/NASU should settle their differences to make students go back to their classes and yet again become productive in their academic pursuits adding that reopening tertiary institutions across the nation will help depopulate the Protest.
