ASUU: UNIBEN students ground activities at federal secretariat in Edo

Activities at the Federal Secretariat in Benin, Edo State were Monday grounded following the protest by students of the University of Benin (UNIBEN), over the ongoing Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike.

The student barricaded the gates of the secretariat and asked the workers to return home.

President of the UNIBEN Student Union Government, Foster Amadin, said they decided to shut the federal government offices in the state to press home their demand for the resolution of the crisis.

“Education has been taken to an unserious level and the federal government is busy with the election, forgetting the fact that there are many students at home due to the ASUU strike.

“We are appealing to those concerned to step in and find a solution.

“All the Federal offices in the state would be shut down. We have also written to Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in the state to inform them that election will not hold in Edo until students return to classes.”
