Students of the University of Lagos, UNILAG, will be staging a protest today to call for the end of the 10-week old strike action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.
The protest has been dubbed #EndASuuStrike and #BlackFridayWalk and will be kicking off at MRS filling station right beside UNILAG.
According to tweets shared by some of those expected to partake in the protest today, the students are angry that the political class are busy campaigning for the 2019 elections while students are wasting away at home due to ASUU strike.
ASUU are on strike due to demands for adequating funding of Nigerian higher institutions. They’ve held several meetings with the Federal Government of Nigeria all to no avail.
Below are screenshots of some of the tweets calling for students to join the protest.
