ASUU Strike: Students plan to block Lagos-Ibadan Expressway


The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), South-West zone, on Monday, said it would commence protests on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway (Sagamu Interchange) over the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

According to the association, the protest was organised due to the lingering ASUU strike. The association’s position was contained in a statement by its coordinator, Adegboye Olatunji.

 “Since the inception of this administration, we have seen how meagre sum is allocated to the educational sector. It is based on the foregoing that we declare a protest against the prolonged ASUU strike which has ultimately affected the progress of Nigerian students for the past six months. And, we also pass a vote of no confidence on the Minister of Labour, Chris Ngige, and Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu.

“The protest shall be held till the strike action is resolved. Convergence point: Lagos-Ibadan Expressway (Sagamu Interchange).”

NewsWireNGR reports that the Union had on February 14, 2022 embarked on industrial action and since then has been unable to reach an agreement with the federal government.

FG has also dragged the Union to the National Industrial Court requesting an order for ASUU to resume while the dispute is being addressed.

The Industrial Court on Monday however adjourned the case till Friday, September 16.
