ASUU Strike Update: NANS Threatens To Boycott Elections If Strike Is Not Called Off
The NANS chairman, Abuja Chapter, Mojeed Omolaja, stated on Wednesday that it will boycott the 2019 general elections if their demands are not met.
He said this at a one-day conference organised by Online Publishers Association of Nigeria themed: “Free Press and objective reporting in the 2019 election year.”
He also distanced the FCT chapter of NANS from the faction led by one Akpan Daniels Bamidele who visited President Muhammadu Buhari and endorsed his re-election.
He said that the NANS officials who paid courtesy call to the President were not fair as a result of this, he also added that the FCT chapter of NANS stood for integrity.
“We the FCT chapter of NANS that controls different chairmen in different states have deemed it match to not participate within the election till once ASUU calls off the strike, because they can’t be playing with our future.
“It is sort of unfortunate that at this time in time students ar reception doing nothing.”
“Imagine someone disbursal seven to eight years to complete a four-year programme. It is not done abroad. Is it as a result of our folks don’t have the money muscle to send United States of America abroad?”
