The National Female Student Association of Nigeria (NFSAN) has given the Federal Government until February 28, 2022 to resolve the issues which led to the declaration of a one-month strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
The body of female students urged the warring parties to resolve every conflicting issue and allow students to return to school by Monday, 28th February 2022.
NFSAN President, Modupe Adetiba, said failure of the Federal Government and ASUU to heed to NFSAN’s demand would result in a nationwide demonstration of grievances in a most unpleasant manner.
Adetiba said: “In furtherance of the above, we will collaborate fully with NANS and mobilise our female students to join NANS on Monday 28th February on the proposed mass action against the incessant ASUU strike. We will no longer take the back seat while our progress is deterred by reckless and careless handling of issues of national importance like education.
“We reiterate our commitment to maximising the happiness of our members, and we will openly oppose any policy or actions that defy such. Therefore, we charge the government to abate this crisis as soon as possible, as we will resort to open confrontation should this hardship linger….
“As a representative of the Nigerian mass heralding the emblem of dignity for all Nigerian Female Students, it will be so inconsiderate of us to let things slide. We fault the Federal Government, the Ministry of Education, and the Ministry of Youth, Ministry of Labour for substituting the comfort and happiness of the Nigerian citizenry with misery and pain. For what it’s worth, the people deserve a better living as promised by the current administration on assumption of office.”
She listed the institutions the strike has affected their exam schedule to include, Federal University of Technology Akure (FUTA) and the University of Lagos (UNILAG).
