He said: “We would block of all major federal roads in all the 36 states of the federation. The unfriendly action will be led and coordinated by NANS JCC and Zonal Executive including National officials of NANS in the state.

He stated that the Congress resolved to act decisively to rescue the tertiary education system which is their major concern from total collapse, in addition to the fate of Nigerian students who rely on public university for education.

He said: “Nigerian students can’t continue to pay for sins we never committed, as we are paying for our education, we strongly believe we deserve the best. At the end of every industrial actions, ASUU members are paid their salaries and other entitlements, likewise Government officials in charge of education supervision.

“It’s only Nigeria students that get nothing but a waste of everything, the house rent is non refundable, the age count is irreversible. The extension of stay on campus didn’t only affect our academic journey but destabilize our life plans, as many misses NYSC mobilization due to age limit, many lost job opportunities arising from age factors while many became exposed to risks and crimes following the avoidable idleness mode the strike action imposed on Nigerian stridents.”
