National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has assured that the outcome of the ongoing efforts with other education stakeholders and policy makers in the country will soon bring a lasting framework to solve the lingering strike action embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in the nation’s universities.
Speaking during a presentation of NANS Best University award to University of Ilorin, on Thursday, the coordinator of NANS, Zone C, Comrade Adio Odunjo, lamented that strikes by the ASUU had become an annual ritual.
“We are convinced that the outcome of our interaction and discussions with these policy makers and stakeholders will provide a framework for finding a lasting solution to the problem in our universities,” he said.
The NANS leader also said that Nigerian universities could only rank among leading ones in the world when university authorities embraced culture of academic consistency and excellence, adding that the culture had distinguished University of Ilorin among its peers.
He said that the education sector held the key to revitalisation and national development, adding that education contributed to the country’s development indices.
