The new President of the National Association of Nigerian Students, Sunday Asefon, has disclosed plans to shutdown all private schools over the prolonged ASUU strike.
Asefon vowed to use his position to ensure that all private universities in the country were closed if the nine-month strike embarked on by members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities continued.
The NANS president said this while speaking with The PUNCH. He lamented that the ongoing strike is the longest industrial action embarked on by the university lecturers.
According to him, 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.
He added that if after consultation with the two parties, and the strike is still not called off, NANS would move in and shut down all tertiary institutions in the country.
