NANS drums support for Ogun East, Ogun central senatorial candidates of green party
The national leadership of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) said it had resolved to rally supports for two of their comrades aspiring for the senatorial seats of Ogun east and Ogun central under Green Party.
A statement signed by Mr Adeyemi Azeez, its national Public Relations Officer (PRO) and made available to newsmen in Abuja on Wednesday.
The comrades are Armstrong Akintunde and Abimbola Majekodunmi.
Azeez said the decision was made after the association’s emergency executive/stakeholders meeting held at the University of Abuja on Monday, Jan. 18 .
According to him, NANS make bold to say that these comrades have remarkably served the organisation with worthy and enviable accumulated records of achievements.
“For reference purpose, Comrade Temitope Akintunde was the first president of National Association of Ogun State Students who fought and mobilised local government bursaries across the 20 local government in the state.
” It was during his days as national president that some academically excellent indegienous students of Ogun state got free sessional hostel accommodations across campuses of higher learning in Ogun state.
” Also, it was during his tenure as president that the indegienous students of Ogun state got access to free notebooks and textbooks coupled with free tutorial classes to equip them ahead of exams.
“However, history will also not forgive NANS, if we fail to appreciate the unrelenting efforts of Comrade Mrs Abimbola Majekodunmi, a former director of Gender, NANS, who ensured during her days that some offices at the NANS national are automatically reserved for the females.
Azeez, however, called on Majekodunmi to continue on her BSC ( Beyond School Certificate) programme organise to train Nigerian students vocationally, thereby making them self sufficient while in school and after.
He, therefore, called on Nigerian students and Nigerians at large to as a matter of developmental interest rally round supports and cast there votes respectively to their members in the coming National Assembly Elections.
