With the ongoing seven-months strike and conflict between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities, (ASUU) the National Association of Nigerian Students, (NANS) has declared that the it will stop operations in all International Airports in the Country
The National Executives of NANS, who met on Saturday in Akure, the capital of Ondo State, decried the way the Federal Government is treating the lecturers who were on strike as well as Education in general.
The students noted that the four-day closure of highways and expressways was a success and have decided to stop International travel beginning on September 19, 2022, so that the bourgeois and the Government will experience what the students have been going through for the past seven months.
The NANS National Task Force on “End ASUU Strike Now” Chairman, Ojo Raymond Olumide, explained that students are tired of pleading with both parties about the necessity of ending the strike during a press conference.
“The President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration must settle all outstanding arrears and the lecturers’ salaries”,
Olumide added that the Airports 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, 19th September 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 sweat and blood have their kids abroad jollying and flexing.’’
“We will, by this statement, not beg again. We shall be mobilising all students to shut down the country. No Education! No Movement!”
