My Comments On NANS Protest Was Misunderstood — Fashola

Gabriel Enenche —

Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, yesterday said his comments on the protests carried out by the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), describing it as “illegal”, were misunderstood. He disclosed that the words never portrayed the protests by the students’ body as illegal, rather the blockage of the Lagos-Ibadan road.

He said while every Nigerian has the right to a peaceful protest, it is against the law to block roads while exercising such right.

“I was a governor (of Lagos state), I managed protests, I was a student and protested, but blocking the road is a different thing, he said.

“The right to a peaceful protest is guaranteed but the idea of barricading/blocking the road is illegal. There’s nowhere in the world that such will be encouraged”, he added.
