NANS suspends nationwide protest over election postponement

The National Association of Nigerian Students has suspended its proposed nationwide protest scheduled for Monday (today) over the postponement of the Presidential and National Assembly elections.

The spokesperson of the association, Azeez Adeyemi disclosed this while speaking with newsmen in Abeokuta on Monday.

The body had threatened to stage a nationwide protest today against the postponement of the elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission.

He cited an alleged plan by unnamed politicians to hijack the protest as the reason for “standing-down” the protest

Adeyemi said, “I must say here, after going through all information in the public domain about the postponement of the presidential and national assembly elections, we have obviously seen that, there is the hand of Esau and the voice of Jacob in the hullabaloo.

“It is based on these premise, that we want to emphatically say that NANS is not a tool to settle a political issue. We say with utmost sincerity and seriousness of mind that we are not cowards and he who runs away from a fight, lives to fight another day.”

“Information has it that some criminals sponsored by some enemies of our nation and human rights have planned to hijack the voice of the people.”
