Nigerian students may paralyse economic activities at the Apapa port in Lagos on Tuesday, following the ongoing nationwide strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), should the federal government fail to meet their demands.
Quest Times on Monday, September 19, reported that the protesting students blocked the roads that lead to the Murtala International Airport, Ikeja.
The students, whose schools have been shuttered since February, defied the heavy downpour in Lagos on Monday to demonstrate their displeasure with the seven-month-old ASUU strike.

The blocking of all access roads to the airport caused gridlock around the Ikeja area of Lagos state and also affected flight operations as airlines were forced to reschedule flights.
To further show their displeasure with the industrial action, the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has vowed to take their protests to Apapa Ports on Tuesday.
This was disclosed by the association’s South West Coordinator, Adegboye Olatunji, during an interview with PUNCH on Tuesday.
“We will be moving to Apapa seaports on Tuesday if the Federal Government refuses to do the needful. Students are tired of staying at home,” Olatunji said.
