The decision by ASUU to extend the ongoing strike action by 12 weeks has been met by a show of dissatisfaction by various students’ rights bodies.
This is as students and other concerned parties, including members of civil society organisations have continued to stage protests to demand an immediate resolution of the crisis between the workers’ unions and the Nigerian government.
Hundreds of students gathered on Monday in front of the entrance gate of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), Akoka.
Heavily armed and hooded security operatives were stationed at the university gates early on Monday ahead of the arrival of the protesters.
Meanwhile, student leaders in Ogun and Oyo states have also threatened to proceed with indefinite protest action.
They said the protest would continue until the government and the striking workers’ unions resolve their disagreement and the university campuses are reopened.
