On Monday 19th November 2018, the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) Abia State Chapter paraded through the streets of Umuahia protesting against the ongoing Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) nationwide strike.
The protesters, who carried placards with different inscriptions, appealed to the Federal Government to negotiate with the striking teachers in order to urgently end the action.
Some of the placards read: “Government don’t commercialise education”, “Save education, save the future”, “Seven per cent budgetary allocation is a misplaced priority,” amongst other
Cokey Nwachukwu the NANS representative in the South East Zone said that the students were tired of staying at home doing nothing and were anxious to return to school.
“Some of us are supposed to be doing four or five-year courses but as it is now, the years are likely to be extended because of the strike.
“Most of us sitting at home are supposed to be mobilised for the National Youth Service Corps.”
The students also impel the Federal Government to address the security challenges urgently especially in the North-East Region
