We use this medium to appreciate every Unilorites and Nigerian Students who came out to participate in the peaceful demonstration held earlier today against the continuous ASUU strike.

The protest which held at the University gate led by the President of the Union, Comrade Taofik Waliu (OMOLUABI) also had in attendance Union executives, faculty presidents, NANS officials, newly-elected SU officials and the general student populace.

It also featured the presence of the security agencies to maintain law and order as well as the media for coverage.

As said by the President while addressing the students and the media, the intention is to kickstart a continuous movement that will put pressure on the Federal Government to attend to the demands of the striking varsity lecturers.

Students who were on board showed their grievances towards the lingering strike by holding placards and banners with different inscriptions that communicate their various displeasures.

We also commend the efforts of our colleagues who joined the movement on Twitter and other social media platforms to ensure that the hashtag #IlorinProtest trend.

Further directives as regards subsequent protest are going to be announced if occasion demands.
