ASUU strike: Serious Protests Going up in Ife as OAU students Ignore Security Operatives

Men of the Nigeria Police Force had militarised the venue of the protesting students of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State.

The protest which began with barely a hundred students had since grown into a mass movement on the Ife-Ibadan expressway.

The PUNCH could confirm the presence of policemen who were being booed out by the agitated students.

See pictures below:

One of the students who spoke with our correspondent, Testimony Jesutofunmi, said, “we are using this opportunity to send message to the Federal Government that they should value our education over elections.

“These people enjoyed free education but they don’t want to give us. They keep wasting our time. Our house rent keep wasting. People that are selling something on campus can’t survive. The bus drivers cannot make income, a lot of people are affected.

“We are using this opportunity to say no to ASUU strike, we want FG to settle ASUU’s demads, that is all we are saying.

“End ASUU strike, fund education, we don’t want this kind of education, where we spend extended years for a four-year course.”

A statement released on Thursday by the President of Students’ Union Government, Akorede Afeez, stated that the protest would commence at Under Bridge, Oru, Ago Iwoye, Ogun State.
