The leadership of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has announced its intention to halt operations at international airports across the country following a seven-month deadlock between the federal government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
Addressing a news conference in Akure, the Ondo state capital, the national body of NANS faulted the attitude of federal government towards the striking lecturers as well as education as a whole.
According to the students, the four-day shutdown of busy highways and expressways had been a success, hence the move to disrupt international travels as from September 19, 2022.
According to NANS, this is being done to make sure that the government understands the suffering that students have been going through for the past seven months.
Speaking with newsmen on the move, the Chairman, NANS National Task Force on ‘End ASUU Strike Now,’ Ojo Raymond Olumide, disclosed that students were already tired of pleading with both parties over the need to end the strike.
Olumide emphasised that the airports that will be occupied will remain grounded until the strike is called off.
