Nigerian students protest prolonged strike action


Nigerian students have trooped out in their numbers across the country marching to different airports to ground activities at local and international airports.

This is coming less than 24 hours after the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS)announced that it will ground activities in airports across the country beginning from Monday, September 18 over the lingering strike action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

It said its decision to ground airports activities was due to the successes recorded in its road protest during which several highways were blocked.
The leadership of NANS, which  spoke in Akure, the Ondo State capital, said the grounding of airports was to make the rich share in the pains of the students occassioned by the prolonged strike action.

Meanwhile, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has assured that everything possible within the ambit of the law would be done to protect airports’ operations from being disrupted.

This is just as key players in the country’s aviation sector have described the contemplation of the students to shut down the airports as a wrong decision that will not bring the required solutions.
