NANS disrupts movements at Ibadan tollgate


Students under the aegis of the National Association of Nigerian Students, on Wednesday, took protests to the Ibadan tollgate, en route Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

The students, who blocked vehicular movements on the route, leaving motorists stranded, thereafter headed for the venue of the stakeholders meeting of the Peoples Democratic Party, which is currently ongoing in Ibadan.

The students have also vowed to continue their protests tomorrow, as they sought the immediate resolution of the ongoing strike action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.

“This agitation shall be sustained to the latter. We have begun a significant action and we shall sustain it till our demands are met,” a statement by NANS National PRO said.

“It is embarrassing that for the past seven months, Nigerian students have been denied access to education. This deliberate act insults the collective intelligence of Nigerian students both home and in the diaspora and it shows the lackadaisical attitude of the ruling elites towards the plight of the Nigerian people.

“No one could have imagined that there would be a time in the history of this country when ivory towers would be under lock and key as a result of governmental crass irresponsibility. Alas! It is happening right in our time,” he added, vowing that they were ready to shut down the country including the Presidential villa, if the Federal Government would not resolve the strike.
