Students, under the aegis of the National Association of Nigerian Students, South-West Zone, on Tuesday, blocked the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Shagamu Interchange, in protest.
The protest is in reaction to the prolonged strike action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.
In a statement issued to the press on the protest ground, signed by the Coordinator and Public Relations Officer of the zone, Adegboye Emmanuel and Giwa Temitope, the students said the Federal Government, led by President Muhammadu Buhari, was failing in its promises to revamp education.
“There is no point arguing about who is at fault or what is to be done, it is very clear that the rulers underfund education and the Buhari government is failing in its promises to reconstruction education.
As it is today, no higher institution in Nigeria is world-class! Yet, our so-called public servants travell all over the world spending billions to send their kids abroad for studies.
