NANS president cries out - says Fayemi didn’t sponsor his election

The newly elected President of the National Association of Nigerian Students, Sunday Asefon, revealed that his victory at the just concluded election in Abuja last weekend was orchestrated by God.

He made this known while speaking to Journalists in an Online interview programme titled "The Roundtable".

When asked if his success at the polls was as a result of the support he received from E

kiti state Governor, Kayode Fayemi. He debunked such claims, emphasizing that the Governor didn't sponsor or interfere in the election.  

“I have not set my eyes on Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State. No politician sponsored me. I consolidated on my mandate and I was not sponsored by anybody. The students accepted my candidacy and the students gave me their mandates,” the new NANS president said.

The newly elected President also slammed his critics who were of the opinion that he was too old to lead the students’ body as a youth.

While responding to his critic, he made it known that any youth can become NANS president in as much as he or she is a student and garnered the collective mandate of the students.

He stated that he would not be distracted by critics who attempt to ‘frame’ him.

“I will not be distracted despite attempts to frame me. I have been given the mandate to raise the consciousness of the Nigerian students and liberate them from the shackles and manacles of oppressors,” he said.

While commenting on the violence that marred the election that led to his emergence as the new president, Asefon said gunshots rent the air at the election venue last week in Abuja due to ‘little misunderstanding’ during the accreditation process.

He claimed no student shot during the electoral process but security operatives intervened and shot in the air in a bid to scare unscrupulous persons from fomenting trouble at the election ground.

“I didn’t see any student with any gun. Security operatives shot to restore peace and scare those who wanted to disrupt the election,” Asefon stated.
