The Staff Union crisis in Lagos State owned Institutions has drawn the attention of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS).
The attention of the leadership of National Association of Ngerian Students (NANS), Joint Campus Committee, Lagos Axis led by Comrade Ogunsanya Rasheed has been called to the set back on the anticipated reopening of Lagos State owned tertiary institution.
This set back is said to have emerged from the lingering issues between the staff unions in the various institutions and the state government over payment of minimum wage and other fringe benefits.
While we are committed to protecting the interest of the entire Nigerian students in the State, NANS JCC Lagos uses this medium to apologize to students for the disappointment and also encourage students not to be violent or do anything that could deter the hinder the quick reaction of the government.
While we appreciate the willingness of the Lagos State government to reopen our schools, it is much more important that all parties involved are reached out to and all grievances be settled for proper academic resumption.
We appeal to our staff unions to be modern in resolving dispute as we frown at locking of school gates at the detriment of anxious students who can’t wait to resume classes. We urge all staff unions to please sheath their swords. We expect the potent executive governor of Lagos State to have receive the ugly news, while we expect his team swift into action and fulfill the state obligation to allow academic activities continue in peace.
The students should note that the leadership of NANS Lagos JCC is behind them and there is no need to fear, actions are being taken and by the end of the day we will be briefed on the next line of actions.
Students are therefore encouraged to adhere strictly to the COVID-19 protocols as the interest of the students is second to known under the leadership of Comrade Ogunsanya Rasheed.
