ASUU Strike: South West Youths Pledge To Join NANS Protest At Airports

Youths in the country’s south-west have declared that they will stand with students nationwide as they urge their demands on the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, or ASUU.

On Sunday, the youths affiliated with the Oodua Youth Coalition (OYC) supported the National Association of Nigerian Students’ (NANS) call to suspend operations in airports all over the nation.

The NANS leadership decided to disrupt the airspace starting on September 19, 2022, in Akure, the capital of Ondo State.

According to Oluyi, all OYC members should join the protest in their respective states, stressing that education should be a right and not a privilege.

“The industrial action has left the fate of many Nigerian students hanging in the balance by the inconsiderate dispositions of the parties involved.

“We, the Oodua Youth Coalition, a socio-cultural youth group with over five thousand members affected by the lingering industrial action declare total support for the leadership of NANS on the proposed clampdown of airspace’s tomorrow.
