NANS orders blockage of major roads Nationwide over ASUU Strike

The National Association of Nigerian Students has directed its members to block major federal roads in the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory on February 28, 2022 in protest against the ongoing ASUU strike.

The students’ body made this known in a statement on Monday jointly signed by its President, Asefon Sunday; and Secretary-General, Adekitan Lukman, titled ‘NANS National Action Against Incessant ASUU Strike.’

The statement read, “I am pleased to direct the immediate commencement of planning and mass mobilisation of Nigerian students and comrades across the 36 states of the federation and the FCT in line with congress decision.

“The line of actions is as follows: blockage of all major federal roads in all the 36 states of the federation to be led and coordinated by NANS JCC and zonal executive including national officials of NANS in the state.

“The Federal Capital Territory is to be blocked by the national secretariat in collaboration with FCT axis of NANS.

“These became sacrosanct once ASUU and FG fail to reach compromise and get our campuses reopened on or before February 28, 2022.

“In a clear term, Monday, February 28, 2022 is hereby declared as national action day against ASUU incessant strike action.”
