The meeting between the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, and protesting Nigerian students, on Monday February 28, 2022 in Abuja, ended in deadlock as the minister walked out on them.
NANS National president, Sunday Asefon who addressed the Minister insisted that education is a right of every Nigerian youth and the ASUU members need to resolve their disagreement with the Federal Government so students can go back to the classrooms.
The meeting however ended with no resolution as the Minister of Education walked out on the students
The students who had earlier occupied the gate of the National Assembly, defy Security Agents to demand an end to the lingering strike by members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
‘ASUU Must Go! Open the gate!’ the students chanted as they headed from the Unity Fountain to the gate of the National Assembly.
“We are not here to fight. We are here to meet the Minister of Education,” Asefo said as the students stood at the gate of the NASS complex.
Representatives of the students were later allowed in and a meeting was held with the Education Minister which later ended in deadlocks.
