New NANS president outlines plans, condemns renewed #EndSARS protest
Sunday Asefon, the newly-elected National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) President, has kicked against the renewed #EndSARS protest, aimed at ending police brutality across the country.
According to him, the protest would not solve the problem of police brutality because the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu had dissolved the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) unit of the Force.
The NANS president who spoke at a press conference in Abuja, said the association does not recognise the #EndSARS movement because it does not have a leader.
Any protest that is faceless, NANS under my watch will not be a party to it,” he said.
Asefon said leaders of the association would be meeting the federal government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) towards ending the eight-month-old strike.
He said he would be consulting with the representatives of the two feuding parties to find common ground to end the prolonged strike.
“I am convinced that this high-level consultation will yield a positive result, and we will not have to resort to mobilising students to mount any protest to this ridiculous long stay at home.
“NANS, under my watch, will not be complicit to such an unending strike and never again will Nigerian students have to stay home this long,” he said in a statement.
