The Nigerian National Student Association, Uyo University chapter, embarked on a peaceful demonstration on Friday, calling on the federal government and university academic staff unions to resolve their differences and allow students to return to school. .

The protesters who blocked the Ikpa road of the municipal campus of the University at 9:30 am gave the federal government seven days to agree to their request.

The students in their songs of solidarity also threatened to close Aso Rock and the National Assembly if their requests are not met within the stipulated deadline.

Some of the inscriptions on the posters read: “We want the ASUU strike to be resolved now,” We are tired of staying home, “” Our rent is going to waste. “We can’t wait any longer.

Addressing students along the way, Zone D, UNIUYO’s NANS Coordinator and mass communication student, Mr. Etinyene Offongekpe, called for an immediate end to the long-running ASUU strike.

“We are sending this message to the federal government and ASUU. We are tired of staying home, our rentals have expired. We want to go back and complete the academic year. We can no longer accept this.

“We call on the federal government to comply with the agreement it signed in 2019 and on ASUU to change ground. We have come to express to the world that we cannot take it anymore.

“We are under instructions from the NANS Secretariat to close Abuja within seven days. We are mobilizing to move to Abuja, we will close the National Assembly and Aso Rock, ”he said.

The President of the Government of the University Student Union, Comrade Emmanuel Akpan, also asked the President, Muhammadu Buhari, the National Assembly, the Minister of Education and all relevant authorities, to resolve their complaints with the ASUU to avoid the collapse of the educational system.

“Nigerian students are tired, I am tired, we are all tired. Seniors have been a senior for two years. It is unacceptable

“We are demonstrating to call on the federal government, the National Assembly, the senators, the minister and all the relevant authorities to resolve the complaints with ASUU and allow the students to return to school.” He said.
