Comrade Sunday Asefon, the president of NANS, made this announcement in Abuja on Wednesday.

He praised the NLC’s leadership for their perseverance and willingness to join forces with well-intentioned Nigerians to call for an end to the protracted ASUU strike.

He stated, “While the NANS has organised several protests in the past with no tangible outcomes, our advocacy and consulting efforts have also been fruitless. We have activated political solutions and are optimistic that an end is imminent.

“However, we fully support the planned protest by the NLC, as we believe it will stem up the advocacy and help put sufficient pressure on the Federal Government to do all necessary to end the strike.

“Therefore, I urge all NANS structures across the nation to mobilise and join the NLC protest.” NANS will solely participate in the mobilisation of students to protest sites and will act in accordance with NLC directives. Throughout the duration of the protest, NANS structures across the nation shall subject to the leadership of the NLC.”
