Imo state university students protest against ASUU strike, shut major road



Imo state University students on Friday protested against the ongoing Academic Staff Union of Universities strike.

The undergraduates threatened to shut the major roads in the state if ASUU and the Federal Government didn’t resolve their differences in the next seven days.

Alfred Jacinta, NAISS senate president, said   political activities is of more concern to the federal government rather than quickly resolving their differences with ASUU to enable ”we the Nigerian students to go back to classes and complete our academic programs.”

She said, “We are the senate arm of the National Association of Imo state Students.

“Here are our senators from different universities across Nigeria who are Imo indigenes. We are here to say that enough is enough.

“The Federal Government should quickly resolve their differences with ASUU so that we can go back to classes and complete our academic programs.

“They can’t keep playing with our futures. We have met countless industrial actions since we gained admissions into the universities. This should stop. We are not getting any younger. Many of us are a few months and years to 30 years old and that means we can’t be mobilised by NYSC.

“We are giving them seven days to resolve their issues, otherwise we will block all the major roads until our demands are met. We are not asking for too much.

“We are only asking that we need to be given the opportunity to complete our academic programs. It is time for us to say enough is enough and take our destinies in our hands.”
