ASUU: NANS to shut down Yola airport Friday over lingering strike

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), says it will on Friday shut the Yola International Airport in Adamawa State over the lingering strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

The Zone E chapter of NANS further said it will be in line with NANS nationwide ‘Occupy The Airport’ protest over the prolonged ASUU strike.

In a request letter to the Adamawa State Commissioner of Police by the NANS Zone E Coordinator, Alhassan Adam, it showed that the protest will begin at the Airport Gate by 9 am.

According to the letter, NANS asked the state police commissioner, CP Sikiru Akande, to protect its members to prevent hoodlums from turning the intended peaceful protest into something else.

“In line with the directives of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) to shut down all the airports in Nigeria till ASUU calls off the strike, Zone E will not be exempted, and we have scheduled our date of protest on Friday 23rd September, 2022.

“Sir, we deem it very necessary to write to your office and request for security cover in order to prevent the protest from being hijacked by hoodlums,” the letter stated.
