Controversial Nollywood actor Yul Edochie has frowned at the blocking of the ever-busy Lagos Ibadan road by members of the National Associations of Nigerian Students (NANS).
The Union kicked-off its protest on Tuesday in at the expressway, following the protracted strike action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, (ASUU) which is entering its seventh month.
Information Nigeria recalls that following the Federal government’s ineptitude to resolve the lingering strike, students blocked the Sagamu Interchange section of the expressway, demanding an end to the seven months old industrial action.
The development which left many motorists stranded yesterday provoked reactions from concerned Nigerians, including Edochie.
In his reaction, via a tweet, Edochie urged the students to take their grievances to the National Assembly and Aso Rock instead.
He wrote, “Dear students, it’s good to see you’re expressing your displeasure over the ASUU strike. However, this move doesn’t make much sense.
“Citizens don’t have to suffer bcos of the govt’s failure to resolve the strike. If you want to block the road, block the national assembly, block Aso Rock,” he advised.
