NANS divided over Jonathan?s second term endorsement
« on: September 04, 2014, 10:35:59 AM »

Zonal leaders of the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, have strongly kicked against the endorsement of President Goodluck Jonathan for a new term by the association?s national leader.
The president of NANS, Yinka Gbadebo, who led the national executive members of the association on a courtesy visit to the First Lady, Patience Jonathan, had last Thursday endorsed Jonathan for a second term.

However, zonal leaders of the union say they were not aware of the development and would not back any political endorsement without adequate consultation and review.

?As for us in NANS ZONE B for south west, we have not declared our support for any aspirant, be you PDP or APC or Labour, because we have not seen reasons why we should come out now and say we are supporting any political person?, said Sunday Asafon, who is the coordinator Zone B, and a student leader at Ekiti State University.

?For us in Southwest, we have not and if we are going to declare support for anybody, I think it has to be an open thing; we have to invite the whole institutions. It?s not something someone will just do as an individual and anybody that said he has declared Jonathan for another term is on his own. We are not part of it, we are disassociating ourselves from it?, he added.

The Zone A coordinator of the North Central chapter of NANS, Abdulrahman Bala, said the zone will oppose the endorsement of President Goodluck Jonathan by its national body.

According to Bala, ?We were not consulted at all. We never knew about it. The pronouncement came out of the personal experience of the NANS president, and if there should be any endorsement, a memo has to be created whereby an input will be collected from various students so that it will be announced properly?, he said.

?We have not even discussed about the issue We are going against it because we were not consulted and as a leader, I think I should be consulted, likewise other leaders too before such matter would spring up?
