Meet ASUU demands – NANS tells Federal Government

Students of various higher institutions in Ekiti State have decried effects of the ongoing strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU on their studies.

The students from the Ekiti State University, EKSU, Bamidele Olumilua University of Science and Technology, Ikere Ekiti stated this in Ado Ekiti during a peaceful protest over the prolonged ASUU strike.

The students barricaded all major routes in the state capital which led to traffic jams.

Two of the students, Olaiya Aje and Tope Ogunleye said it was unfortunate the federal government signed agreement it could not implement with ASUU.

They were of the opinion that the strike would have negative impact on them and the Nation’s education system.

They posited that the strike would increase their stay on their varit campuses, thereby having negative impact on their future.

Addressing the students, the president, NationaI Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, Mr Sunday Asefon blamed federal government on its failure to meet the demands of the university lecturers.

Mr Asefon made it clear that, the nationwide protest would continue until federal government accedes to the requests of ASUU.

He told the students that they would relocate to the main gate of EKSU on Friday.
