NANS reacts as court sacks Oyetola, declares Adeleke winner

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has hailed the declaration of Sen. Ademola Adeleke as Governor of Osun State by the election petitions tribunal, saying it is hope awakening.

Mr. Adeyemi Azeez, National Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the association, made this known in a statement on Friday in Abuja.

According to Azeez, NANS described the tribunal victory of Adeleke as a clear hope for the nation’s democracy.

“NANS equally commends President Muhammadu Buhari for once again proving the Nigerians that he is a man of integrity and would not for any reason manipulate or economise the integrity of this country’s democracy for any selfish or party interest.

“We commend the determined sincerity and commitment of the Osun guber tribunal for not compromising the truth.

“NANS hereby implores other states gubernatorial tribunals, to emulate the worthy and sincere practise of the Osun tribunal,” he said.

Azeez added that the judgment would go a long way in restoring, redeeming and repositioning the integrity of Nigeria’s hard earned democracy.
