The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has been on a protracted strike, and the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Kaduna, has called on students at the different schools to gather on September 21, 2022, for the complete closure of the Kaduna-Abuja expressway.
Comrade Dominic Philip, the task force chairman for the students, stated in a statement on Wednesday that the demonstration would start from the Kaduna expressway and terminate at Gonin Gora beside Federal Cooperative College, Kaduna.
He then extended an invitation to all of the National Excos, Zonal Excos in Kaduna, JCC Executives, SUG/SRC Executives, parents, and decent citizens.
However, given the insecurity issues in Kaduna, the Kaduna State Government issued a warning on Tuesday night against the risk posed by such a protest.
In a statement, Samuel Aruwan, the state Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, said that the planned action by any group or person was unacceptable.
“Citizens may kindly be reminded that collective security should remain the first and most important consideration at all times.
“Individuals, unions and other groups are, therefore, urged to note this advisory for strict compliance,” Aruwan said.
But the leadership of NANS in the state, it was learnt, has vowed that there was no going back in carrying out the protest.
