1 The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) on Tuesday blocked the Lagos–Ibadan Expressway in protest against continue closure of the nation’s universities over the prolonged strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
4 All entreaties to the aggrieved students by motorists and commuters did not yield any result as members insisted that they would not leave the road until their demands are met by the Federal Government.
6 The protesting students, armed with placards of various inscriptions, were chanting solidarity songs, saying that they were tired of staying at home and demanded an end to the strike.
7 They also insisted that the Federal Government should yield to the demands of their lecturers for them to call off the strike.
9 Adeleke said, “The protest was due to the lingering impasse between the Federal Government and ASUU, which had defied all solutions.
10 “We want the Federal Government to end ASUU strike permanently, that is why we are on the road protesting.
11 “This is just the tip of an iceberg.
12 We are just getting started.
14 “And, tomorrow, by the special grace of God, we will be at another location, next tomorrow the same thing, until our voice is heard,” Adeleke said.
