ASUU Strike: We’ll Block All Roads Linking To Abuja If The Strike Is Not Called Off – NANS

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has threatened to block all roads to Abuja if the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU)’s strike is not called off.

The association said that it will also match the Abuja streets on Monday to protest against the strike action by ASUU.

Speaking to BBC Hausa on Tuesday, the vice president of the union, Yazid Tanko Muhammad, said the protest had become necessary in order to rescue the educational system of the country from incessant strike actions.

He said: “The reason we choose to embark on a protest is that it is the only language that can be understood and it is the only way we can show the world our situations and feelings towards the strike.

So, it is a protest which if we start, will not stop until the issues are resolved and the lecturers resume work.

So we will block the roads linking Abuja from Kogi, Abuja from Kaduna and Abuja from Nasarawa states.

That means we will block the whole Abuja on that day. We will also block the Federal Secretariat.

That is why we are calling on Mr President to show concern and solidarity to us by not attending to work on that day.

He should please remain at home. Since everyone is a student, either a Minister, Senator, House of representatives member they were all students before they reached the level they are now.

So, we are doing this because of the future of our education and the country.

We can’t just stay at home and watch. No country in the world can go on strike for a whole month without any concrete reasons like a pandemic or similar things.”

He said the protest will involve students, parents and civil servants who will join them to tell the world the situation they are facing in the country with regards to their education.
