KWARA STATE

 

Unilorin students protest ASUU strike extension, threatening total shutdown.

Students of the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN), on Tuesday, staged a peaceful protest over the extension of the warning strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities
(ASUU).

Speaking on the sidelines of the protest in Ilorin, Mr Taofeek Opeyemi, the President of the Students’ Union, UNILORIN, said “this is a sad day for all Nigerian
students”.

He said that the protest was to sensitize and create awareness to federal and state governments as well as parents and Nigerians that they were disheartened by “what
is happening between the government and ASUU”.

He observed that they were placed in a difficult position and were bearing the brunt of the strike action by ASUU.

“We are tired of staying at home. Some of us that are supposed to graduate are spending more years.

“We understand that the Federal Government and ASUU are meeting and if nothing is achieved, we shall mobilize members of National Association of Nigerian Students
(NANS) and other institutions such as Polytechnics and Colleges of Educations to join the protest.

“We shall shut down all activities in the state until our demands are met,’’ he said.

Also speaking, Mr Isaac Adewale, the General Secretary, Students’ Union, UNILORIN, asserted that all Nigerian students “are not happy about the strike’’.

He said that education was not a privilege but the rights of every Nigerian child, adding that the government at all tiers must do everything to revamp the education
sector.

“We demand that our campuses be re-opened so as to avert any youth restiveness,’’ he said.

Adewale appealed to the Federal Government to emulate advanced nations on the progress made in the education sector.

In his reaction, Mr Salman Isa, the NANS Chairman, Kwara State chapter, affirmed that “unless ASUU lifts its strike actions and students resume school, NANS will
deploy its members from other institutions to join the protest.’’

Isa warned that the association would cripple all activities in the state.
