Following the protracted industrial action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), the National Association of Nigerian Students has appealed to the body to accept Federal Government’s offer and call off the strike.
NANS made the appeal, in a statement by its National Public Relations Officer, Comrade Bestman Okereafor, on Saturday.
“We are optimistic that the storm in the universities will be over soonest.”
Against this backdrop, delegates of the Federal Government had on Thursday met with ASUU and agreed to set up a seven-man joint committee to look into ASUU demands and also release funds for infrastructural needs in universities.
ASUU delegates at the meeting accepted the offer but they would take the proposal to their members in various states and universities chapters.
