NANS1The Rivers State chapter of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) on Monday called on the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to end their feud.

The leader of the group, Mr Jonas Adokiye, who made the appeal while addressing government house officials in Port Harcourt, said the lingering strike was doing harm to students.

He said the strike had turned most of the students into armed robbers and prostitutes, noting that some students had engaged themselves in various kinds of criminal activities, due to idleness.

The unionist urged well-meaning Nigerians to prevail on ASUU and the Federal Government to return to the negotiation table.

Adokiye who is also the Director of Action and Mobilisation of NANS, also called for the appointment of a senior special assistant to the governor to oversee student matters.

He pleaded with the Rivers Government to also provide buses to ease movement of students in Rivers, appealing for the payment of bursary to students.

The Permanent Secretary in the Rivers State Government House, Mr Fortune Oguru, commended the group for conducting themselves peacefully.

He appealed to students to be patient, promising to pass their message to the governor, whom he said, was away on official assignment.

Oguru assured the students that the outcome of the negotiations between government and ASUU would ensure better learning and teaching. (NAN)
