in the quest to abruptly end the strike that has begun since February 14, the National Association of Nigerian Students on Sunday declared that no political party will hold a convention to select any presidential candidate in Abuja.



NANS President, Sunday Asefon, made this known in a statement made available to our correspondent.

The Peoples Democratic Party picked the Federal Capital Territory for its May Convention to select its presidential candidate amid 15 aspirants from all over the country. The ruling All Progressives Congress is also reported to have considered Abuja for its presidential primary later this month.

However, NANS, in its statement, told the political parties to either end the strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities since February 14, 2022, or forget about holding any presidential primary in the nation’s capital.

The apex students’ union body also expressed anger that those saddled to ensure the smooth running of the education sector including Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba; and Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige; have picked up the outrageous N100m presidential forms of the ruling APC.
