IBADAN — The organized students union body on Wednesday had protested at the main gate of the University of Ibadan (UI) against the prolonged industrial action embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU)
The security operatives were strategically positioned at the main gate of the University to forestall the breakdown of law and order as protesters moved around with placards, calling for an end to the face-off between the Federal Government and ASUU, noting its effect on the students.
They threatened that if the situation remains unresolved, members of the union would disrupt activities at Federal government establishments nationwide.
Some of the placards read: ‘No to Commercialization of Education, ‘We align with ASUU in its demands, ‘Our future is in jeopardy’ No resumption of academic activity, no 2023 general election.”
Some of the protesters said: “We have given the parties involved in the crisis enough time to resolve their differences Enough is enough.
“The Federal government and its relevant agencies are toying with our careers and future.
“With the prolonged ASUU strike, we have stayed beyond the duration of years that we are supposed to spend. A 4-year course duration has been extended to 7 years.
“We are tired of staying at home. The Federal government should do the needful by shifting grounds, and critically looks into and grants the request of ASUU.”
