Engr Nurrudeen Aliyu Hammanyero, a candidate of the Young Peoples Party (YPP) hoping to represent Mayo Belwa, Jada, Ganye, and Tongo Federal Constituency in Adamawa State, has said that the National Association of Nigeria Students (NANS) has taken the right decision in fighting to secure their destinies by opting to ground airports.
The Adamawa politician said the lingering Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike is becoming unbearable, leaving many Nigerian youth out of school for no fault of theirs.
Hammanyero reiterated the high level of insensitivity of Nigeria’s leaders toward the University system over the years.
According to him, a serious government will engage wisely with the demands of ASUU in the interest of the youth who are expected to be leaders of tomorrow.
Hammanyero whose dream of having a youth inclined representation if voted into power in 2023, backed their decision to stage protests across the country.
He said the protest may press the federal government and ASUU to come to terms because strikes and protests are the only languages the Nigerian government understands.
“For God’s sake how can a government be so insensitive to allow ASUU to close schools for almost a complete academic calendar? This is not fair to Nigerian youth.
” I’m backing the protest decision of the students to close down all airports in the country that will possibly press home their demands,” Hammanyero said.
He however, advised the students to be law-abiding by conducting a peaceful rally as good citizens of the nation.
