Written by on September 13, 2022

Students, under the aegis of the National Association of Nigerian Students, today blocked the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Sagamu Interchange to protest the ongoing industrial action embarked upon by public university lecturers.


In a statement issued to the press on the protest ground, signed by the Coordinator, South-West Zone, and National Public Relations Officer of NANS, Adegboye Emmanuel and Giwa Temitope, respectively, the students said the Federal Government is failing in its promises to revamp education.


The Students demand a meeting with the leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities to discuss solidarity actions and plan for the phase of the struggle.


They also passed a vote of no confidence to Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, and Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, vowed to mobilise towards shutting down the Presidential Villa if their demands are not met.
