On Monday, September 12th, 2022, South-West zone of the National Association of Nigerian Students announced the start of a demonstration on the Lagos-Shagamu Expressway.
 
The association claims that the protest was organized as a result of the Academic Staff Union of Universities’ ongoing strike action.
 
The body also announced that it had voted a vote of no confidence in both Adamu Adamu, the minister of education, and Chris Ngige, the minister of labour and employment.
 
Adegboye Olatunji, the Coordinator of NANS for the South-West zone, sent a statement to PUNCH correspondent saying that for more than six months, ASUU has been on strike, consequently paralyzing academic activity on campus. Unfortunately, the Federal Government has shown little consideration for the emotions of Nigerian students, demonstrating that this administration has no interest in their academic aspirations.
 
It defies sense that the government establishes new institutions while downplaying the welfare of the instructors, resulting in a university closure that has lasted more than six months with no sign of an end in sight. A university lecturer committed suicide two weeks ago as a result of the government’s disregard for his wellness; he left behind three children. What would happen to the children he leaves behind is the question.
 
The statement continued by saying that since the beginning of this administration, they have observed the paltry amount allotted to the educational sector. They also observed the conflict between the ASUU members and the labour and education ministers over the protracted strike, which has no sign of closure. All of these were examined by the Senate Committee on Tertiary.
 
Based on the aforementioned, they have condemned the ongoing ASUU strike, which has negatively impacted Nigerian students’ academic progress over the past six months. They also express their disapproval of the Labour Minister Chris Ngige and the Education Minister Mallam Adamu.
 
The protest will take place concurrently with the strike action until it is over. Lagos-Ibadan Expressway is the convergence point.
