ASUU Strike: NANS To Halt Operations In All International Airports

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), has revealed its intention to halt operations at all international airports following the failure to bring an end to the seven-month strike of lecturers by parties involved.

NANS met over the weekend in Akure and condemned how Federal Government treated lecturers on strike and general education.

The students declared that the four-day closure of highways and expressways was a win, so they decided to stop international travel beginning on September 19, 2022.

Ojo Raymond Olumide, the Chairman of the NANS National Task Force on “End ASUU Strike Now,” revealed that students were already tired of beseeching both parties about the need to end the strike during a press conference.

“The President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration must settle all outstanding arrears and the lecturers’ salaries”, Olumide said, adding that the airports that would be occupied will remain closed until the strike is called off.

“We shall begin another round of protest next week by storming the airspaces on Monday, September 19 2022 to #OccupyTheAirports. We want to let the world know about the pains and anguish students are going through.

“Nigerian students whose parents create the commonwealth cannot continue to be suffering at home alongside our lecturers while the few who gain from our sweats and blood have their kids abroad jollying and flexing.

“We will, by this statement, not beg again. We shall be mobilizing all students to shut down the country. No Education! No Movement!” He stated.

While criticizing the Minister of Works, Babatunde Raji Fashola, over his comment on the barricade of federal roads by the students, NANS passed a vote of no confidence on both the ministers of Labour and Education.
