Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, on Tuesday warned members of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) against blocking the Kaduna-Abuja road for any reason.
The students had vowed to block the busy highway to protest the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
NANS had last week blocked the Lagos-Ibadan expressway to drive home their demand for immediate resolution of the Federal Government and varsity teachers’ dispute.
They also staged a protest at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, on Monday.
The governor, who gave the warning in a statement issued by the state’s Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, said the government has uncovered a plan NANS to extend their protest to Kaduna by blocking the highway over the ASUU strike.
He described the plan as unacceptable and warned the people of the state to drop the idea.
