Following the reactions from a media official of the Kogi state government, people of the state are pouring their divergent views over the government’s stance in the storming protest staged by the students of Kogi State University and National Association of Nigerian Students [NANS] on Thursday in Lokoja.
In a statement by the Senior Special Assistant on Electronic Media, Petra Akinti Onyegbule, she described the move by the students to ground business activities and stopping of travellers in the state’s capital as ‘ill-advised and unjustifiable’.
A facebook fan, Nuli Enzyme De-Nonyes feels the KSU students were ill-motivated by ASUU deciding to protest against the state government.
But Suleiman Oyiza Sarah believes the actions of the students were justifiable, admitting their clear demands for the school activities to come alive again after three months.
On the contrary, Simeon Omale has accused the government officials of mis-informing the public, insisting issues of worry for the students should be faced head-long against some contentious allegations against the ASUU and inciting.
