The Factional President of the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, Umar Farouk, threatens mass action from students if the Federal Government fails to immediately resolve the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

The student union said it will occupy the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu until he resolves the ASUU strike.

“Federal Government through the Ministry of Education should within a few working days resolve the lingering ASUU Strike.”

“As we shall mobilise our students towards occupying the ministry of education until our demands are met,” Farouk said.

Farouk also urged the Federal Government to prioritize education and increase the budget allocation to the Ministry of Education so it can meet the UNESCO threshold.

“There is rising unemployment that has affected the growth and development of the Nigerian economy thus it becomes important that the government creates a conducive environment,” He added.

On the 14th of February, ASUU declared a month warning strike which then escalated to an indefinite strike.

(Today) Friday, the 9th of September makes it 207 days since the industrial action by ASUU.
