The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) have backed the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) on its demands before the federal government and its ongoing protest over the lingering ASUU strike.
Protesters at the Lagos international airport road
National President, ASUU, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, in an interview with newsmen commended the students for fighting for their rights.
He said, “We commend NANS members for fighting for their rights. It is their right. The pro-chancellors are doing well too. We hope the government will listen to them because they (pro-chancellors) understand what is happening in the Nigerian universities.”
The ASUU president added that the union will meet with the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila on Tuesday.
The NANS protest comes on the heels of the ongoing strike by the members of ASUU.
NANS have followed up on their promise to ground major highways including the Lagos international airports on Monday.
Protesters at the scene blocked the road in a bid to air their grievances over the lingering strike.
