Members of the National Association of Nigerian Students have said they will be blocking the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja, and Kaduna-Abuja Expressway today Wednesday, September 21, as they protest the lingering strike of the Academic Staff Union of Universities.
Recall that on Monday, September 19, the aggrieved students also blocked the access roads to both the local and international terminals of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, leaving people stranded.

Responding to the scheduled block of major roads by the member of The Nigerian students on the Kaduna-Abuja expressway, the Kaduna state Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, in a statement released said that the state government was not depriving citizens of the right to express discontent, public security and safety must always be the foremost contemplation.

The statement read “The Kaduna State Government wishes to remind members of the public that any move to block the Kaduna-Abuja Road (or any routes) to express dissatisfaction, is unacceptable and a prelude to the breakdown of law and order. The danger of barricading a strategic route like the Kaduna-Abuja Road is better appreciated within the context of ongoing security operations covering the route, and other areas of interest. Citizens are therefore strongly advised against participating in such processions.”
