The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has vowed to block federal roads across the country following the extension of strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
In a statement on Monday in Abuja, the National President of NANS, Mr Sunday Asefon, said the decision to block major federal roads nationwide was arrived during the association congress’s held in Sokoto.
He said, “Following the resolution of our congress held on Feb. 19, 2022, in Sokoto State University among, other matters discussed and considered, it was resolved we act decisively.
“I am pleased to direct an immediate commencement of planning and mass mobilisation of Nigerian students and comrades across the 36 states of the federation and FCT in line with congress decision.
“The line of actions is as follows: blockage of all major federal roads in all the 36 states of the federation.
“This will be led and coordinated by NANS Joint Campus Committee (JCC) and Zonal Executives including National officials of NANS in the states.
“This becomes sacrosanct once ASUU and Federal Government failed to reach a compromise and get our campuses reopened on or before Feb. 28.
“This is to rescue our future and the tertiary education system which is our major concern from total collapse.” (NAN)
