The National Association of Nigerian Students has stood it’s planned nationwide strike scheduled for today (Monday) over the postponement of the Presidential and national assembly elections.
The Public Relations Officer of the students’ body, Adeyemi Azeez while speaking with newsmen in Abeokuta claimed the protest was canceled due to plans by some politicians to hijack the protest for selfish interest.
It could be recalled that the body had threatened to stage a nationwide protest today against the postponement of the elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
He, however, said that NANS is re-strategizing on ensuring that the body is not hijacked by selfish politicians.
He said: “I must say here, after going through all information in the public domain about the postponement of the presidential and national assembly elections, we have obviously seen that there is a hand of Esau and voice Jacob in the hullabaloo.
“It is based on these premises we want to emphatically say that NANS is not a tool to settle political issue. We say with utmost sincerity and seriousness of mind that we are not coward and he who runs away from a fight,’lives to fight another day’.
“Information from our intelligence has it that some criminals sponsored by some enemies of our nation and human rights have planned to hijack the voice of the people”.
