Students of various universities in Kwara State affected by the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, today took to the street on a peaceful protest with various placards and inscriptions to express their disappointment over the lingering ASUU strike. The students, who gathered at the front of the Federal Secretariat Complex along Fate road in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, called on both the Federal Government and ASUU to shift grounds in order to end the lingering ASUU strike.
Addressing reporters during the protest, the Students Union President of the University of Ilorin, Wisdom Okoko, and other students’ leaders noted that the students are now fed up as a result of the strike which has demoralized many of them calling on the Federal Government to Fund the educational sector.
The students also noted that the lingering ASUU strike has led many of them into social vices while the female ones now bear untimely pregnancies. The students maintained that the peaceful protest will continue until the Federal Government listen and do the needful.
