ASUU Strike: National Association of Nigerian Students Reportedly Suspends Lagos Protest, Awaits Outcome Of Gbajabiamila’s Intervention

Written by on September 20, 2022

The National Association of Nigerian Students has reportedly suspended the protest in Lagos over the continued shutdown of Universities.

Recall that students on Monday paralysed activities at Murtala Muhammad International Airport in Lagos, subjecting travellers and motorists to hardship as traffic gridlock was experienced in different parts of the state.

Also, multiple flights were rescheduled while some passengers missed their flights on account of the blockage created by the students.

After earlier vow to continue the protest today and even extend to the seaports to demand an end to the 7-month ASUU strike, the Chairman of the National Association of Nigerian Students, Lagos axis, Comrade Olusesi Tolulope said the protest had been suspended as a result of the intervention of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila.

Gbajabiamila is reportedly expected to meet the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, the leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and other stakeholders over the lingering strike.
