Taraba students union absolves self from protest

16 June 2015, 10:01Augustine Osayande

Abuja - Students from the Taraba State University have disassociated themselves from a protest that occurred at the institution on Monday.

The students distanced themselves through a statement jointly signed by Isa Inuwa, Shata Maikyau and Udi Aluta, the leaders of the union.

"We are not in support of the protest that is been organized, that it was done without the concern of the Union, and that even if we wants to hold a protest we will justify our corse. We call on the entire student of Taraba State University to please stay away from it, as we are not aware and have inform the security agencies of our unawareness of this act," the statement read.

The students' leaders said the protest was organized by those that are not from the institution and called on the students of institution to keep calm. They also expressed confidence on the current state government to resolve the ongoing strike action by the University.

"We have faith in the government of the day that it will call off the strike. We urge the process to be a bit stepped as we have stayed long at home, and hope to resume studies shortly. We plead with the Government to please come to terms with the ASUU so that they can go back to school."
