…As NANS Block Lagos-Ibadan Expressway
The National Association of Nigerian Students has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to reverse the no-work-no-pay policy on the striking Academic Staff Union of Universities.
The body made this known while addressing stranded commuters along Lagos- Ibadan Expressway when NANS members blocked the highway to express their displeasure about the ongoing strike.
A statement jointly issued by the NANS National Public Relations Officer, Giwa Temitope, and the Ogun State NANS Chairman, Kehinde Damilola said students resulted to self-help after staying at home for seven months.
They accused the government of underfunding education in Nigeria and of failing to fulfill promises made to the people.
They demanded solutions to the issue in the interest of young Nigerians and the future of the country.
Meanwhile, the Federal Road Safety Commission in Ogun State has appealed to road users to use alternative routes as traffic flow has been affected on both sides of the Lagos Ibadan Expressway, starting from Sagamu Interchange to New Makun City.
The FRCS noted that its officials and other sister security agencies are on the Expressway to manage the situation.
