Laide Raheem, Abeokuta
The leadership of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has issued a seven-day ultimatum to the Federal Government to find a way of ending the indefinite strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU).
The ultimatum was issued, on Tuesday, by the National Public Relations Officer of NANS, Azeez Adeyemi, at a press conference held, in Abeokuta, Ogun state capital.
ASUU had, on Monday, embarked on an hour indefinite strike to press home their demand on the implementation of the 2017 agreement reached between it and the Federal Government.

But the national students body, through the spokesperson on Tuesday, called on the FG to immediately implement the agreement reached with ASUU in October 2017, with major component being funding the revitalisation of federal Universities in the country, among others.
According to Adeyemi, NANS will not sit idly and allow universities in the country to be shut for months over what it termed “federal government’s insensitivity and lackadaisical approach towards education at all level in Nigeria”.
