The FG has issued a strong warning to the NLC regarding the planned Solidarity Protest.
Last week, the NLC made public its intention to stage a nationwide protest on July 26 and 27 “to send our kids back to school and support our unions in Nigeria’s public institutions fighting for quality education.”
The planned protest, according to Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture, was deemed unlawful because there was no active conflict with the government.
After the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting on Wednesday, Mohammed spoke to State House reporters.
The Minister also charged the NLC with having political motivations and advised the organization to “totally separate itself from politics.”
The National Association of University Students (NAUS) said that it would also be participating in the nationwide demonstration.
“NAUS will take part in the countrywide demonstration calling for a quick resolution to the conflict between the Federal Government and ASUU so that our students can resume their studies.
As a result, the statement said, “All NAUS stakeholders, including Students’ Union Presidents, Zonal Vice Presidents, Campus Monitoring Committee Chairmen, members, and the general public, are hereby put on high notice to mobilize, organize, and be ready to be part of this unprecedented revolution.
Since February 14th, ASUU has been on strike in an effort to pressure the government into granting its demands.
The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), the Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU), and the National Association of Academic Technologists are among the other university unions that are now on strike (NAAT).
On Wednesday, the Colleges of Education Academic Staff Union (COEASU) also said that their strike will be extended by three weeks.
On Tuesday, June 14, 2022, the Union began a one-month strike; however, they have since declared plans to prolong it, blaming the extension on the state government’s failure to accede to their demands.
