The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has called for the immediate sack of the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu over his role in the ongoing strike action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.

ASUU had on Monday, extended its industrial action embarked upon on February 14 by another four weeks as the Federal Government is yet to meet the demands.

NANS President, Sunday Asefon, in a statement, on Wednesday, asked President, Muhammadu Buhari, to sack Adamu over what they described as gross incompetence.

The NANS president alleged that the Minister lacks compassion and empathy for Nigerian students, stressing that ASUU had gone on strike for at least 18 months since he assumed office.

The statement reads, “This development calls to question his qualification to be appointed as minister of education in the first place. His total lack of compassion and empathy for the plight of Nigerian students speak volumes.

“Since he became minister ASUU has gone on strike for almost 18 months cumulatively and the entire educational structure of our tertiary education system is in total shamble under his watch”.
