ASUU Strike: Dialogue with FG or we expose you, NANS threatens ASUU

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has threatened to expose the real issues behind the industrial action embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

The NANS president, Comrade Yinka Gbadebo told journalists in Abuja that the union’s demands are egocentric and has so far been largely responsible for the corruption and rot in the university system.

The student association who questioned the demands of the union warned ASUU to refrain from politicising the strike, but should embrace useful solutions like the call for a National Education Stakeholders Dialogue.

This threat is coming at the heels of the strike embarked upon by members of ASUU entering its 100th day.

Thousands of students, including those undertaking postgraduate programmes have been idling away at home since July 2.

The failure of the federal government to fulfil resolutions reached with ASUU in 2009 and non-payment of accumulated earned allowances owed the university lecturers are yet to be addressed.

What are you waiting for Mr. Gbadebo?! Expose them already and stop threatening!

Sadly, NANS unlike before has been relegated to be an embarrassing tool in the hand of our corrupt politicians! A caged lion of sort, or more like a tamed cat!

The govt has since agreed on lecturers' demand for improved allowances, but the selfless ASUU is still fighting for better and improved infrastructures in Nigerian universities so that graduates from our universities can compete with others from US or UK universities.

I equally pray ASUU to relax their demand and call of the strike for the sake of the students, but by compromising their stance, the solution and proper change and recognition we desire in our educational sector will not be achieved.

"Those who stand for nothing fall for anything."


  1. NANS,ASUU and FG are all playing d game of politics.and it is regretably regroubious dat we nigerians are relyin on such nicompoops as our leaders.

  2. Who to believe now? Goverment, ASUU or NANS?
