Nigerian Students have plans to organize a mass protest on Tuesday due to the on-going ASUU Strike that has crippled the University System. The protest organized by Joint Action Force (JAF) will kick off at eh Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) office at Yaba, Lagos at 8am. Protesting students in the South-West zone may block all roads leading to Lagos State tomorrow.
Other zones in the protest include Kano, Ibadan, Owerri, Calabar, Abuja among others. The aim of the protest is to draw attention to the bleak future that awaits Nigerian children due to the neglect of public education, “while children of top politicians and government officials are trained in private schools in Nigeria and abroad with funds looted from public coffers.”
ASUU Strike has entered 41 days today and issues have not been resolved. The government has not fulfilled its own part of the 2009 agreement with ASUU.ASUU said there is no going back this time around.
