AAUA students protest, urge ASUU, FG to end strike
NEWS DIGEST – On Friday, students of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko (AAUA), had a peaceful protest over the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
The students of the university took over the highway linking Abuja-Akure, singing demonstrative songs with placards showing their displeasure over the prolonged strike.
Earlier, the students’ union had announced embarking on an indefinite protest until the strike is over.
President of the Students’ Union, Kolade Ogunsanmi, decried the ceaseless strike and continual closure of government-owned universities which has reduced the development of the education sector.
He implores the striking lecturers and the Federal Government to without delay end the strike.
He said, “It is an undeniable fact that our University had been shut just because the FG failed to honour the 2009 agreement it made it ASUU”
“We Nigerian students, Adekunle Ajasin University students are on the street of Akungba to express our displeasure to the Federal Government and in no distant time the government should answer ASUU so that our Universities can reopen.”
