NANS protest over ASUU strike grounds Lagos Airport
The National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, stormed Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos on Monday to put pressure on the government to end the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) seven-month strike.
Remember that the students’ union had previously threatened to halt operations at local and international airports across the country beginning Monday due to the strike.
Ojo Raymond Olumide, Chairman of the NANS National Task Force on ‘End ASUU Strike Now,’ said students were tired of pleading with both parties to end the strike.
“Nigerian students whose parents created the commonwealth cannot continue suffering at home alongside our lecturers while the few who gain from our sweat and blood have their kids abroad.
“We call on students to rise and join us as we take our destinies into our hands. Our demands remain consistently clear and simple,” he said.
