The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has threatened to jeopardise the chances of Muhammadu Buhari winning the 2019 presidential election if the President refuses to meet the demands of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and Colleges of Education Academic Staff Union (COEASU).
In his words, “We won’t continue to serve a government that does not understand the value of education. If you choose not to yield to the demands of ASUU and COEASU, we will continue our protest.
“Mr. President, NANS is giving you this for free that, come 2019, we are going to show you the road through our votes to Daura if after today’s nationwide protest, you still refuse to respect the voice of over 50 million Nigerian students.
Adeyemi, also expressed concern over the state of tertiary institutions across the country, accusing the Buhari-led government of budgeting low funds for the education sector.
