NANS started enormous protests on Tuesday, depicting what it described as the “Federal Government’s irresponsibility” towards education, particularly resolving and settling issues with the striking lecturers.

ASUU has been protesting for a considerable length of time, since February 14, 2022,, with resumption hope still dashed for many students as the union and the FG are still at loggerheads over issues of lecturers’ welfare, revitalization of university system, and payment platform among others.

The PUNCH reported that the Federal Government through the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, dragged ASUU to the Industrial Court earlier in the week over the strike, alleging the refusal of the union to call off its strike despite the government’s intervention.
