The National Association Of Nigeria Students yesterday had publicly denied Musiliu Obanikoro as not fit to be a minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in view of the role he played in the Ekiti State election scandal that was later exposed by Captain Sagir Kola. NANS yesterday took to the street of Lagos in Ikeja to protest and they were led by the Vice President (External Affairs) Ogunkuade Oluwatosin. The students called in Obanikoro to take perpetual leave of politics and leadership aspiration in Nigeria stating that, his actions have not only destroyed the fabric of democracy but also eroded the hopes of Nigerian students, that the ideal of democracy will ever be celebrated in the country.
He also denied rumors that Nigeria Students have endorsed President Goodluck Jonathan for the election, explaining that the meeting convened by Jude Imagwe, the senior special assistant to President Jonathan on student and youth was attended only by some selected youths and a minute fraction of the NANS executives.
He said, no right thinking Nigeria Student would endorse President Jonathan for a second term, drawing attention to the death recorded in student communities expecially in the northern parts of Nigeria and all the strikes that have affected academic stability in the country.
