We’re ready to embark on protest – NANS

National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) President, Sunday Asefon, says the union is prepared to protest the strike embarked on by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

Asefon spoke during an interview with Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily yesterday.

He lamented that the Federal Government appeared not to be interested in ending the strike, as it was focusing on the coming 2023 general election.

He urged the government to stop playing politics with the ASUU issue and resolve the prolonged strike.

Asefon said: “We are talking about education, we are talking about life.

“Our lives are no longer being discussed by the leaders, these leaders that we elected. Rather, their focus now is on the election because of their selfish interest.

“We are battle-ready; the worst they can do is to shoot us. If they ask their police to shoot us, if we die, the generation coming will know we died because of fighting for them. They will also know that they shot us because they were preparing for the election. We need to take action now.”
