Governor Yahya Bello of Kogi State has cautioned Nigerian students to desist from their planned national protest for security reasons.
The governor has cautioned the students while speaking on Arise TV on Wednesday, adding that the students should learn from the outcome of the EndSARS protest and not take to the streets.
The Daily Reality reported that the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) had protested against the lingering strike at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.
The aggrieved students had threatened to shut down the airport if the conflict between the Federal Government and ASUU has not been resolved.
He said, “Let me admonish the NANS and the younger generation just like I did during #EndSARS when it was just starting then, please don’t take the law into your own hands.
“Our candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is deeply concerned, and even Mr President. We are all concerned about this lingering crisis. What this administration failed to do is to remove the political aspect of ASUU and other associated problems from the academics and that is why we are facing what we are facing today.
“Now, don’t take the law into your own hands. With EndSARS, we knew exactly what happened. If you take to the streets, there are hoodlums out there who are ready or who have been sponsored to hijack the protest from you.”
