NANS, NAOSS commend Abiodun over Shuaib Ladejobi’s choice as APC Odogbolu LG flagbearer


The leadership of National Association of Nigerian Students Ogun axis and the National Association of Ogun State Students on Wednesday commended the magnanimity of the state governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun over the choice of Comrade Shuaib Ladejobi as APC chairmanship flagbearer for the Odogbolu Local Government in the forthcoming council election.

The two bodies described Ladejobi as a promising Nigerian youth with lots of passion for his people and would definitely make everyone proud.

Speaking during a press briefing at the Ogun NUJ secretariat Iwe Iroyin, Abeokuta, the General Secretary, NAOSS,Comrade Adebowale Gafar, noted that by this action the governor had chosen to stand by the youths and the students’ constituency.

He said, “The Governor’s decision is a massive step in the right direction.

“This singular act will give our youths hope in the future ahead.

“The appreciation from the duo of NANS Ogun Chairman and NAOSS National President was due to the decision to give Comrade Shuaib Ladejobi who is a students’ leader in his 30s, the Chairmanship ticket of Odogbolu Local government.

 “We are, however, confidently inspired by the transparent process by the Ogun State Independent Electoral Commission (OGSIEC) in conducting a free and fair local government election which will serve as model for national election.

“We urge Governor Dapo Abiodun not to rest on his oars in delivery the dividends of democracy to the people of the state.”

They equally hailed the governor on the decision of the Governor to pay bursary to Ogun State students, describing it “as a kind gesture that will never be forgotten quickly.”

 They argued that this became so, given the reality that the “last time students of our dear state enjoyed such benevolence was over 8 years ago.”

They, however, appealed to the Governor to ensure even distribution of the money so that the payment would be made to the right and appropriate quarters.
