The protesting students, who have recently resumed nationwide protests following the failure of both the government and the striking ASUU to reach a compromise, vowed to “shut down” Abuja Airport and the Abuja-Kaduna expressway on Wednesday.
In a statement signed by the Chairman of NANS Taskforce to End ASUU Strike in Kaduna State, Dominic Philip, all national executive members of the union and student leaders across various campuses in the state are asked to converge on thek on Wednesday to demand an end to the strike.
The statement, which was obtained by CSONews24 reads in part: “In respect to the nation-wide protest by our dear association NANS in demand of ASUU strike to be called off, I write to inform you of the total shutdown of the Abuja – Kaduna expressway end at Gonin Gora by Federal Cooperative College, Kaduna.
“In this regard, all National Excos, Zonal Excos in Kaduna, JCC b7, SUG’s/ SRC Executives, Parents, good spirited country men and women, and gentlemen of the press are, by this circular, invited. All SUG’s in the state are to mobilise with their union vehicles and personal vehicles to the venue.”
