Following a prolonged strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Kaduna, has called on students of respective schools to assemble on the 21st September, 2022, for the total shut down of the Kaduna-Abuja road.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, the students’ task force Chairman, Comrade Dominic Philip said the protest would begin from Kaduna expressway and end at Gonin Gora by Federal Cooperative College, Kaduna.
Following this, he invited all National Excos, Zonal Excos in Kaduna, JCC Executives, SUG’s/ SRC Executives, parents, good-spirited countrymen and women.
However, the Kaduna State Government, on Tuesday night, warned against the danger associated with such a protest as Kaduna is a fragile State.
The State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, in a statement, said that the planned action by any group or individual was unacceptable.
He added that “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.”
However, the students’ leadership said on Tuesday night that nothing would stop the mobilisation of students for the protest.
