The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), has promised to shut down all private universities in the country if the ongoing strike by members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities continue.
The new NANS president, Sunday Asefon, stated this while speaking on a PUNCH Online interview programme, The Roundtable.
Asefon according to the Punch newspaper lamented that the ongoing strike is the longest industrial action embarked on by the university lecturers.
He said NANS would engage the Federal Government representatives and ASUU leaders to find a lasting solution to resolve the stalemate in negotiations between the two arms.
“After consultation with the two parties and should the strike not be called off as soon as possible, NANS would move in and shut down all tertiary institutions in the country,” the NANS president promised.
