Written by on May 20, 2022

Motorists and commercial motorcyclists, yesterday had a hectic day in Ado Ekiti, Ekiti State capital, as students under the aegis of National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) blocked major roads to protest against the prolonged nationwide strike declared by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

The rally was organised by the NANS/Joint Campus Committee, Ekiti axis, to reawaken the federal government to hearken to ASUU’s demands.

The protest led by NANS’ National President, Sunday Asefon, was attended by students of Ekiti State University and the Federal University, Oye Ekiti.

Their counterparts from other institutions also joined the protest in solidarity.

The visibly enraged students chanted various anti-government songs to deride  President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government for lacking the administrative acumen and deft political move to resolve the lingering crisis.

The NANS president said the body is still planning a bigger rally under the nomenclature ‘Operation test-run’, that will shake the country over alleged inefficiency and ineptitude of the federal government to resolve the issue.
