Nigerian female students have been warned against protesting nude on the streets of the country over the prolonged strike action by members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.

Unconfirmed reports on social media had said some female students are planning to protest nude on the streets asking the government and ASUU to reach a compromise and call off the strike.

Reacting, Shehu Sani, a former Kaduna State senator and gubernatorial aspirant, urged students not to protest naked in order not to create distractions to their main cause.

His tweet read: The nationwide students’ protest over the ongoing universities strike is commendable and should be sustained.

“However, the threats by some female students to protest nude should be shelved, in order not to create serious distractions to the main cause of the struggle.”
