ASUU strike: NANS storms venue of Atiku’s meeting with PDP Governors, chieftains

Members of the National Association of Nigerian Students on Wednesday stormed the venue of a meeting the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party for the 2023 elections, Atiku Abubakar, was holding with stalwarts of the party in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

The students, led by their National Public Relations Officer, Yisa Giwa, demanded to see him over the lingering strike.

According to the students who had earlier conducted the Day 2 of their protest over the strike by blocking the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, the former Vice President was yet to speak categorically on the seven-month-old strike.

They wanted him to address the issue.

They thus stormed the venue of the interactive session between Abubakar and his running mate, Ifeanyi Okowa, the Governor of Delta State, on one hand, and the members of the party on the other, at Theophilus Ogunlesi Hall, University College Hospital, Ibadan.

Yisa said Abubakar has not taken any position to identify with the students since university lecturers began the strike.

Those at the programme included the Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, and the leadership of the PDP in the South West, made up of Lagos, Ogun, Oyo, Osun, Ondo and Ekiti States.

However, The Eagle Online recalls that Abubakar had made several pronouncements on the ASUU strike and how he would treat education, if elected in 2023.
