ASUU must henceforth consult us before embarking on strike - NANS

NANS demands consultation first before University Lecturers embark on any industrial action

The National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, has warned university teachers against embarking on industrial action without prior notice.

The students’ body also tasked the federal government to channel the money it claimed to have recovered from those who looted the country’s treasury to the education sector, saying such measures would reposition the deteriorating state of the nation’s education.

NANS President, Chinonso Obasi, in a statement, yesterday in Abuja, insisted that lecturers must consult NANS before embarking on any strike in the future.

Obasi said the decision was a fallout of the association’s just concluded emergency Senate meeting held at the Kwara State College of Education, Ilorin.

NANS, according to the statement, demanded that the Federal Government should channel the money recovered by anti-corruption agencies to the education sector in Nigeria to address some of the burning issues.
