The National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, has described the ruling of the National Industrial Court that the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, should go back to work while the case involving it and the Federal Government is being heard, as a win-win situation for all the stakeholders in the matter.

The National President of NANS, Usman Barambu while speaking to newsmen on Wednesday described the court ruling as a sort of progress on the resolution of the face-off.

He however maintained that the Federal Government must, not see the ruling as a victory over ASUU.

Meanwhile, his reaction came few hours after members of the association threatened not to allow any political campaign hold across the country till students of public universities return to classrooms.

Chairman of NANS National Taskforce, Ojo Olumide, made this known while speaking at a press conference in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.

He maintained that if the government fails to conclude all the negotiation and agreement with ASUU within the frame of two weeks, there will be more protests and rallies all over the country
