Strike: Protesting students block Lagos-Ibadan Expressway

Students, under the aegis of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), have blocked the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Shagamu Interchange, in protest.

The protest is in reaction to the prolonged strike action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities(ASUU).

During the protest, the Coordinator, South-West Zone, and National Public Relations Officer of NANS, Adegboye Emmanuel and GiwaTemitope, respectively, said the Federal Government was failing in its promises to revamp education.

They called on ASUU leadership for a meeting as soon as possible to discuss solidarity actions and plan for the next phase of the struggles and urged the federal government to pay all outstanding arrears and salaries of the lecturers.
