Following a seven-month stalemate between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, has disclosed its intentions to stop operations at all international airports in the country
The national body of NANS met over the course of the weekend in Akure, the capital of Ondo State, and condemned the manner in which the Federal Government was treating the lecturers who were on strike as well as education overall.
Students claimed that the four-day closure of highways and expressways was a succes, which is the reason they chose to stop international travel starting on September 19, 2022, so the common and the government would encounter the suffering that students had gone through for the past seven months.
The NANS National Task Force on “End ASUU Strike Now” Chairman, Ojo Raymond Olumide, revealed that students were already 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 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, 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 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!”
While berating the Minister of Works, Babatunde Raji Fashola, over his indicated remark on the blockade of federal roads by the students, NANS passed a vote of no confidence on both the ministers of Labour and Education.
