ASUU STRIKE: Our Right To Protest Is Lawful, NLC President Tackles Lai Mohammed

It’s elementary knowledge, that the right to peaceful assembly and protest is fundamental global right guaranteed by the UN charter on Human and Peoples’s right and the constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria. It’s not a solidarity protest , NLC is directly involved in the current dispute in our university system. All the four trade unions involved are affiliates of NLC. Secondly as citizens , our children have been out of school for 5 months, majority are children of working class and the less privileged, this alone should call for urgent action.

All peaceful assembly are lawful and does not require any permission under the law.

In a democratic society such statement is not consistent with the rule of law.

Ayuba Wabba mni,
NLC President
