The leadership of the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, Southwest Zone, has said it is not part of those endorsing the Tinubu/Shetima presidential ticket or any other ticket.
Source reports that the association also warned opportunist against attempts by some people to commercialise student union platforms for selfish reasons.
In a statement by the Zonal Coordinator, Comrade Adegboye Olatunji, the Deputy Coordinator, Comrade Alao John and the Public Relations Officer, Comrade Awoyinfa Opeoluwa, of the association said the former National President of NANS, Comrade Sunday Asefon, acted on his own and without the support of the body when he recently said students in the zone had adopted Tinubu/Shetima ticket for support.
“It is therefore well within our rights and an imperative task for us to quash any attempt to commercialise or take undue advantage of the collective efforts of thousands of living and late comrades as well as students.
NANS also advised politicians to purge themselves from the habits always falling prey to impersonators who go about demanding money with the association’s name collecting money from politicians with the promise of mobilizing students to vote for them, adding that such persons were on their own.
NANS added that it would only endorse a candidate that could prove beyond reasonable doubt that he or she has the interest of Nigerian students and the education sector at large at heart.
