Yet again,the National Association of Nigerian Student (NANS) has come into limelight along the Ibadan -Ife expressway road on Thursday leaving thousands of communes stranded as a roadblock was mounted at Gbongan Bypass.
This development follows as the students are getting tired of the nine-month-long strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).NANS spokesperson, Giwa Yisa Temitope, said Nigerian students are tired of staying at home. He added that the Federal Government has failed young people.
The protest brought vehicular movement on the ever-busy expressway to a halt, leaving passengers stranded. Some were forced to take barely motorable alternative routes to avoid the protesters, while others drove against the traffic in order to beat the traffic jam the protest caused.
On Wednesday, the students also blocked the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway to protest against the lingering dispute between ASUU and the Federal Government. They blocked the inbound and outbound sections of the expressway.The members of the association said the protest in now essential in order to press home their demand for immediate resolution of the face-off between ASUU and the Federal Government..
