Ondo students, NAOSS discredit NANS claim on Akeredolu
Students from Ondo state under the auspices of National Association of Ondo State Students (NAOSS) on Tuesday, discredited the claims of its parent body on the outcome of a meeting with the state governor, Mr Rotimi Akeredolu.
The students’ leaders in the state denied being harassed or intimidated by Akeredolu saying the governor never threatened to close down tertiary institutions in the state.
The rejoinder by NAOSS leadership is coming on the heel of the allegation of the President of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) who alleged that the leaders of the union and its team were chased out of the governor’s office last Monday
Addressing the press, the National President of the NAOSS, Comrade Emmanuel Akeredolu alleged that the NANS delegates were sponsored to disrupt the peaceful dialogue process between the leadership of students in the state and the state government to review the tuition fees.
In his words, ” we have earlier gotten information that the NANS national delegates will be in the state for an assignment and the job is to aggravate the dialogue process and consequently cause unrest in the state.
“The NANS President, Danielson Bamidele Akpan claimed that he has not been enjoying the patronage of the Ondo state government and was, therefore, ready to jeopardise the efforts of student leaders in the state.
“We, therefore, admonish and implore all students and the general public to shun any act of violence as plans are already established towards looking into the crisis rocking our institutions.”
