Nigerian Students Threaten Abuja APC And PDP Conventions, Says No Presidential Primaries Until ASUU Strike Is Resolved

  • Vows to invade and scatter the conventions and ready to die in the hands of Security Agents

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) on Sunday declared that no political party, especially the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will hold their National Conventions to select their 2023 Presidential Candidates in Abuja until the lingering strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is tackled and resolved.

NANS President, Sunday Asefon, said in a statement titled ‘End ASUU Strike Or Forget Political Activities In Abuja,’ that “we have also in the past weeks seen those saddled with great responsibility in the education sector and those saddled with responsibilities of resolving labour crises declaring interest to contest for the seat of the President come 2023.

“We are surprised by their effrontery and total disrespect to the Nigerian people, for having the courage to even mute the idea of contesting, talk less of picking up the 100 million naira Presidential form, while Students languish at home because of their collective failures.

“Politicians have shown no concern to the plight of the Students, but are only busy in their selfish and inordinate ambitions to become the next President.

“Let me say without mincing words, the two major political parties should forget any political gathering in Abuja, go elsewhere, except there is a solution to the lingering ASUU strike.

“We will frustrate all the activities leading to the selection of party Candidates, if we remain on strike. We also want to advise the government and the Politicians who are busy campaigning to be President, to either resolve the ASUU crises or give direct orders to the Security Operative to shoot us at the site during party Conventions to select a Presidential Candidate. If we remain on strike, they should just forget it.”
