Newly-elected National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS President, Sunday Asefon, has kicked against the #EndSARS protest, aimed at ending police brutality across the country.
According to Asefon, 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, speaking at a press conference in Abuja, stated that the association does not recognize 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 stated that 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.
