ASUU Strike: Protesting students threatens nation-wide demonstrations and riots

Motorist plying Asaba-Benin highway were stranded as protesting students blocked the road by the Asaba-end of the bridge, thus causing a gridlock that lasted several hours, Wednesday, morning.

National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, Coordinator in the South-South and South-East, Comrade Chinonso Obasi, expressed worry that the students are feeling the brunt of the strike following the failure of the Federal Government and Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, to fully reconcile their differences.

He said: “We are appealing to the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, that since the Federal Government has been able to release N100 billion for infrastructural development and N30 billion for allowance, they should go back to classroom and continue their negotiation or agitation. This is our prayer and wish.

“We are giving them one week to open the schools or be ready to face corrosive consequences in form of nation-wide demonstrations and riots. We are ready to mobilise for that and it will be operation occupy Nigeria.”

This student association faction must have been brainwashed or bribed in my opinion!

ASUU is fighting for a reformed and well-equipped educational sector for the students and not the 'released' allowance alone. ASUU is not being selfish by calling of the strike after getting 'the promised' allowance. 

ASUU need not strike before a good government will see to the needs of the educational sector! China and other world powers spends more of their annual budget on education, hence the fascinating development and advancement we see and admire in this countries!
