Naija News learnt that Walz who is a rapper failed to observe the mandatory Students Industrial Work Scheme (SIWES) and that meant he could graduate with his colleagues.

He allegedly tried lobbying his supervisor to grade him despite not observing SIWES and she refused.

It was gathered that her decision severely infuriated him.

NANS threatens to disrupt political campaigns

The leadership of the Lagos axis of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has threatened to disrupt political campaigns and make the coming weeks ugly for Nigerian politicians until the Federal Government puts an end to the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

The chairman of Lagos axis of NANS, Olusesi Tolulope, said on Friday that resolving the strike has already become an ego fight between the Federal Government and ASUU, saying students were the ones paying the price.

He said the students were at the receiving end of their inability to resolve all issues around the seven-month, warning that if the ruling of the National Industrial Court, which ordered the lecturers back to work was not complied with, and the Federal Government also refuses to do the needful, the society would be sitting on a time bomb.

  They are on leave- Ngige mocks ASUU

Tolulope stressed that students could not be rendered ‘useless’ while campaigns for the 2023 general election progress.

“Our lives also count, and we won’t be afraid to make the next few weeks ugly for those politicians too,” he warned.

He pleaded with ASUU to return back to class or at least suspend the strike while negotiations with the Federal Government continue.

“Actually, Nigerian students through NANS have been more supportive of ASUU due to some of their demands, which we found logical enough and appealing to our interest. Nevertheless, there is no agreement between NANS and ASUU on putting an end to the strike,” he said.

He added that NANS expects ASUU to address Nigerian students and the general public on their position on the court ruling, which has mandated them to return to class.

“We are hoping to hear from them in the next 24 hours,” he noted.

Tolulope appealed to Lagosians to treat the rumoured impending protests on the Third Mainland Bridge and Apapa as fake news, saying NANS does not intend to organise further protests in the state.

He added that “feelings of fear, frustration and resentment should not be created in the minds of Lagos residents out of this volatile information.”

Tolulope appreciated the Lagos State government for its understanding, tolerance and provision of security during the peaceful protest that was held on Monday, September 19, 2022.

Obey court ruling first – FG tells lecturers

Obey court ruling first – FG tells lecturers

The federal government has told the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to obey the National Industrial Court ruling and call off its seven-month strike.

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, gave the advice while fielding questions from journalists on the margins of the 77th United Nations General Assembly, UNGA, and the Official Launch of the Nigeria Integrated National Financing Framework Report (NIFF).

The industrial court on Wednesday, ordered ASUU to call off its ongoing nationwide strike, pending the determination of a suit filed by the Federal Government.

The federal government had dragged the lecturers to court in a bid to end the strike.

“I’m not ASUU but the maximum in law is that when there is a court judgment or ruling or order you must first obey and then we can apply for an appeal if you so desire or apply for stay that is stay of execution.

  They are on leave- Ngige mocks ASUU

“So the maximum in law, jurisprudence and everything about the law, is that you obey the court’s ruling, judgment or order, no matter how bad. The qualifying thing is that no matter how bad and no matter how you disagree with it, you first obey. Like the military people say, obey before complain.

“So we expect them to get back to the classrooms but that doesn’t foreclose negotiations, the negotiations should be on as a matter of fact, it will be on officially and non officially.

“For example, the House of Representatives had invited us to come and brief them. And together, they are stakeholders. You heard Mr President said to the committee of Pro-Chancellors when they visited him, that he would do consultation as per the two request on putting an icing on the cake on the government offer to ASUU members and the issue of resettlement fund to cushion the effect of the “no work no pay” situation they found themselves in.

“So, President will look at it, the House of Reps are stakeholders, Ministers we are not only stakeholders, we are advisers to Mr. President by the provisions of the Constitution, Section 5 of the Constitution and 147, that appoints ministers one from each state of the Federation, and we hold regular meetings with him, so we are his chief advisers.

  Again, FG frowns at ASUU warning strike

“So, we will interface with the House of Representatives and all of us collectively will advise Mr. President,” Ngige said.
