On Saturday, the National Association Of Nigerian Students (NANS) urged the leaders of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to go back to negations with the Federal Government to call the strike off.

Mr Bestman Okereafor, NANS National Public Relations Officer said “There is a need for ASUU to continue its negotiations with the Federal Government to find a common ground to resolve issues that led to the union’s ongoing strike.

On Saturday, Okereafo in a statement in reaction to ASUU’s threat not to suspend its action added: “We consider this decision as devilish and not in the best interest of Nigerian students.

“We are calling on the leadership of ASUU to reverse its decision and consider returning to the negotiation table.’’

“We wonder how the lingering disputes will be resolved if meetings are boycotted.

The students’ umbrella body also urged the lecturers to work towards solving the dispute and suspend the strike before Jan. 1, 2019 in the interest of Nigerian students.
