The meeting between the minister of education, Adamu Adamu, and protesting Nigerian students ended in deadlock as the minister walked out on them, Channels TV reports.
This development arose following the protest by the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) a protest against the lingering strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
The students led by the national president, Sunday Asefon, gathered on Monday morning, February 28, at the Unity Fountain in Abuja, displaying various placards and chanting songs of solidarity.
The protest was also held in other states across the country.
They were however stopped by security operatives at the NASS gate.
Asefon said the police officers are meant to join the protesting students because they have children in schools who are currently at home, due to the strike.
He insisted that education is a right of every Nigerian youth and the ASUU members need to resolve their disagreement with the Federal Government so students can go back to the classrooms.
