The Academic Staff Union of Universities’ ongoing strike has prompted the National Association of Nigerian Students to announce on Thursday that it would start the process of suing the Federal Government and Education Minister Adamu Adamu.
This was disclosed by the group in a statement provided to the PUNCH correspondent in Abuja. At a press conference, the minister urged the striking students to take ASUU to court.

However, Sunday Ashefon, the President of the NANS, stated, “We have come across a statement attributed to the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, suggesting that Nigerian students impacted by the ASUU strike should sue ASUU for damages incurred as a consequence of the strike.”

However, the student body demanded that ASUU prioritize student concerns over other interests.

We further demand that ASUU show regard for the interests of its students. ASUU’s attempt to keep the country hostage is selfish and unpatriotic.

Since the current strike should never have harmed state universities, we advise the state government whose postsecondary institutions are on strike to take all reasonable steps to ensure the resume of academic activities. We will assist the state administration in taking whatever action it sees appropriate to force public university lecturers on strike to return to their jobs.
