On Tuesday, March 8, Nigerian students in the southwest region of Nigeria launched a protest against the federal government over the ongoing Academic Staff Union of Universities strike.

The angered students, issued a seven days ultimatum to resolve the embarked strike by ASUU.

More-so, according to the students, the current fuel scarcity in the country is a strategy created by the federal government to skyrocket the price of petroleum and products across the nation.

The students flooded both sides of the expressway around Car Park C, Mowe, in Ogun State while carrying inscribed placards.

However while addressing them the chairman of NANS in Ogun state, Kehinde Simeon said Nigerians have continued to suffer under the leadership of the federal government.

Driven by this philosophy, our aim has been to create a platform where every voice, every narrative – provided they are decently expressed –  is allowed expression. Our belief is that by promoting unfettered competition of ideas, the truth will eventually emerge. Obviously, doing this while resisting any temptation to be captured by any special interest or tendency makes survival as an online newspaper more challenging.
