Occupy The Airports Is The Next Step For ASUU Strike


The National Association of Nigerian Students(NANS) have held a world press conference at Akure-Ondo State to deliberate the way forward to end the standoff between ASUU and the Federal Government to make sure that Universities strike of more than seven months come to an end.

While you could not say the Students have not been patient enough, they have bear a lot. After series of attempts by the students to halt process in the nation to get the government to notice them and yet to no avail, they are now taking what could be a no-brainer decision.

Their next step is operation #OccupyTheAirports at all international airports in the country.

The NANS National Task Force “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!”
