The National Panel of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has abused its Ogun state leader Tomiwa Bamgbose for convicting the federal and state government of Ogun for closing schools to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
NANS said it distanced itself from the Bamgbose “outbreak” and described its statement as ruthless.
DAILY POST learned that Bamgbose had condemned the federal and state governments’ decision to close schools and said the decision was “not the right move”.
The Ogun student leader is also said to have said that he did not support the government’s actions because fatal coronavirus disease was not widespread in Nigeria compared to countries like Italy and Spain.
In response, NANS ‘National PR officer, Comrade Azeez Adeyemi, said the association distanced itself from the position of chairman of the state of Ogun, which he described as a “ruthless conversation.”
Adeyemi said Bamgbose did not speak on behalf of the entire student community in the state and across the country, but only expressed his personal opinion, which he was entitled to.
However, Adeyemi said: “We at NANS strongly want to say that his position is not the general view of the student community in the state, nor is it the general opinion of the national organization of NANS in the country.”
The NANS national spokesman stressed that Bamgbose could not speak for Nigerian students because he was only a chairman of the 36 heads of state, and stressed that he was unable to speak on behalf of the country’s entire student population.
Adeyemi said, “We therefore urge all students in the country, the federal government, and the government of the state of Ogun to ignore this ruthless statement because it does not reflect the general opinion of students in Nigeria.
The national NANS-PRO therefore called Bamgbose to order and warned him not to make unsupervised statements that could plunge the nation into chaos.
