The leadership of National Association of Nigerian Students, Southwest Zone has condemned the habit of students showing accolade to politicians at the expense of discrediting image of the students’ body.
A factional coordinator of NANS Zone D, Comrade Kowe Amos said this in a statement issued and made available to newsmen on Tuesday.
Amos stated that, the students’ body was not an extension of politics but a pressure group that demands accountability from the government.
He noted that his leadership supported the probing of Ibikunle Amosun led government.
He called on Governor Dapo Abiodun to priorities students welfare by renovating lecture theatres and provide remuneration for lecturers in the state.
The statement partly reads “It is shameful and an insult on the collective intelligence of all Nigerian students for some impostors to be making use of the name of the association to praise-sing politicians while discrediting dissents all in the name of political correctness.
“NANS as a students’ body is not meant to be an extension of any politician or government but to always act as a pressure group that it is by demanding for accountability and transparency while speaking up when it matters most especially in the area of taking radical position on issues of governance.
“We throw our weight behind the call that was made by NAOSS for the probe of the administration of Sen. Ibikunle Amosun and we also call on the State government to prioritise students’ welfare most especially by paying serious attention to the educational sector of the State which include but not limited to; Renovation and construction of lecture theatres across the State-owned educational institutions and Remuneration of lecturers across the State-owned educational institutions in the State”.
