The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) on Tuesday blocked the Shagamu interchange of the Lagos-Ibadan expressway to protest the ongoing ASUU strike.
Hundreds of the protesting students demanded an immediate end to the prolonged strike urging the Federal Government to meet the demands of the striking lecturers to enable them to return to class
The Nation reports ASUU commenced a warning strike on February 14, 2022.
NANS’ South West Zone and National Public Relations Officer Adegboye Emmanuel and Giwa Temitope, in a statement, said the strike was too much to bear.
The statement reads: “There is no point arguing about who is at fault or what is to be done, it is very clear that the rulers underfund education and the Buhari government is failing in its promises to revamp education.
“As it is today, no higher institution in Nigeria is world-class! Yet, our so-called public servants travel all over the world spending billions to send their kids abroad for studies.
“As major stakeholders in the educational sector, we are the ones who can save ourselves. We have monitored the yearnings of students from campus to campus through their social media platforms and also in their public writings. Students all over Nigeria stand with ASUU.
