ASUU vs FG: NANS threaten to shutdown major airports in Nigeria
If the standoff between the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the Federal Government continues, the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) Zone D has threatened to shut down key airports.
Mr. Adegboye Olatunji, the NANS South West Zone Coordinator, stated this in Abuja on Monday during a demonstration at the All Progressive Congress (APC) Secretariat in support of Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun's bid for a second term.
Olatunji believes it is past time for all parties to work together to fix the issues that led to the strike, as students are suffering as a result.
“We are planning to block government organisations that generate money for them if the ASUU issue is not resolved."
“We have been protesting this issue by occupying major roads in the South West, but we believe if we ground airports, the government will do something about the strike,” he said.
NAN reports that inscriptions such as' Moving Ogun Forward ’, we need Dapo Abiodun, Dapo Abiodun, a silent achiever, Dapo Abiodun, the people’s choice ’, among others, were written on the placard during the protest.
