ASUU Strike: No going back on protest – NANS ignores Kaduna govt warning

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), in Kaduna State has called on students of respective schools to come out in mass today, Wednesday for total shut down of the Kaduna-Abuja road.

The student body made it known that the protest is necessary following a prolonged strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU),

In a statement issued on Wednesday, the students’ task force Chairman, Comrade Dominic Philip said the protest would begin from Kaduna expressway and end at Gonin Gora by Federal Cooperative College, Kaduna.

He invited all National Excos, Zonal Excos in Kaduna, JCC Executives, SUG’s/ SRC Executives, parents, good-spirited countrymen and women.

However, the Kaduna State Government, on Tuesday night, warned against the danger associated with such a protest as Kaduna is a fragile State.

The State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, in a statement, said that the planned action by any group or individual was unacceptable.

He said, “citizens may kindly be reminded that collective security should remain the first and most important consideration at all times.

“Individuals, unions and other groups are, therefore, urged to note this advisory for strict compliance.”
