The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has described the yet-to-be-settled drama generated by the N90 billion fraud allegation leveled against the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo as a calculative efforts of the critics to rubbish the anti – corruption crusade of President Muhammad Buhari-led federal government.
The association made this known in a statement signed by its National Public Relations Officer, Mr Adeyemi Azeez and made available to newsmen in Abuja on Thursday.
Azeez strongly condemned the allegation and passed a “vote of confidence” on the Vice President.
He said NANS found it exceedingly important to make its views known on critical issues of national concern to all stakeholders in the country.
He emphasised that critics of the Buhari led administration had identified Osinbajo as a “clear major standing factor” for which many, including the international communities are still respecting the federal government today and are looking for ways of bringing him down, “an effort which cannot stand”.
“For his giant strides especially at the times when the president was out of the country: we pass our vote of confidence on His Excellency, Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo and we remain firm with him against any odd”.
“Retrospecting on the challenges facing the country since independence till date, the largest students’ body applauded President Buhari’s effort at repositioning Nigeria, urging him to shun antics of the opposition that are capable of causing disaffection in his government.
NANS also applauded efforts of the Ogun state governor, Dapo Abiodun at stepping up security as well as repositioning the education sector in the state.
“In Ogun state, we must appreciate the giant strides of the Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun in procuring 100 patrol vans and 200 motorcycles for the security of the state with a view of achieving a crime free state under his watch”.
“We also want to appreciate the Governor for his quick intervention in some of our campuses domicile in the state such as MAPOLY, DS Adegbebno ICT polytechnic and TASCE among others which were undergoing some challenges as at the time of his emergence”.
NANS however, urged the Ogun state governor to be weary of praise singers “who are posing to be your friend for the sake achieve a selfish interest” as well as those it described as oppressors “who may wants to seize the opportunity of your newness in office to amass more unclean wealth and as well paint you black in the eye of the general public”
