JUST IN; Tension gridlock, as Students ground Airport road over ASUU strike
There is tension currently at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos following a total clampdown by students who are protesting over the seven-month industrial strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
It will be recalled that the protesters reported to be members of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) had earlier threatened to ground activities at the local and international airports across the country beginning Monday due to the strike.
While speaking at the protest group earlier today, Chairman, NANS National Task Force on ‘End ASUU Strike Now,’ Ojo Raymond Olumide, 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.
