Students Plan To Protest Over ASUU Strike On Friday, January 25

A group of students of tertiary institutions in Lagos under the aegis of Concerned Nigerian Students are planning to protest on Friday, January 25 2019 to express their displeasure over ASUU strike.

The students in a statement on Wednesday, January 23, 2019, asked the Federal Government to fulfil the agreement it willfully entered with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in order for them to get back to school.

Recall that the Federal Government and the ASUU leaders have had eight meetings to resolve the ongoing strike which has entered week twelve.

The statement reads in part: ‘’The March tagged #BlackFridayWalk which was earlier scheduled to start by 10am after a Press Conference at the University of Lagos was suspended till further notice for security reasons.

The leadership of the Coalition submitted a letter to the Police informing them of the peaceful protest and the only accepted reason given by the Police to suspend the March is the security situation in Lagos, citing the violence that claimed lives at the APC rally on Tuesday and the reprisal attacks they envisage.
