NANS To Reps Member : Stop Fanning Embers Of Discord Among Students Leaders In Ogun

... Samson Ajasa Defends Reps Member, Warns Damilola

... Don't Drag Me Into Your Politics, Lies, Hon. Adekoya Tells NANS

From Ayobami Ife, Abeokuta

Crisis within the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Joint Campus Committee, Ogun State axis has taken a worrisome dimension as the students body accused the federal lawmaker representing Ijebu East/Ijebu North/Ogun Waterside in the House of Representatives, Hon. Adesegun Adekoya of instigating division within its leadership.

NANS JCC advised Hon. Adekoya  to desist forthwith from further fanning the embers of discord in the leadership affairs of the association in Ogun State.

It alleged that the undue interference of Hon. Adekoya was capable of causing students unrest and subsequent political instability in the Gateway State.

Addressing newsmen in Abeokuta, NANS chairman of the Joint Campus Committee in Ogun State, Comrade Kehinde Damilola, recalled that the body held annual convention in Abeokuta where elections into the executive of NANS JCC Ogun axis were conducted, officers duly emerged and sworn in.

Damilola claimed that one Samson Adeyemi Ajasa never participated in the convention that produced the present leadership of NANS JCC Ogun axis, describing him as an impostor,  vowing that he would not fold his hand and allow any intruder or selfish politician to be sponsoring leadership crisis among students leaders.

NANS specifically appealed to the director, Department of the State Security Service (DSS) as well as the Commissioner of Police in Ogun state to hold  Hon. Adekoya responsible for any breakdown of law and order which may occur as a result of his continued interference in students election affairs in Ogun as alleged.

But responding, Hon. Adekoya tells NANS JCC leader in the state to desist from peddling unfounded report about him.

The federal lawmaker popularly called "attacker," also urged NANS not to drag him into its "politics and lies," saying he has nothing to profit from whoever wins or loses in students union election.

"To be candid, whoever is peddling such unfounded report against me is just being unfair to me. What do I stand to gain from such act? Is it because there's election this year or next year or for what purpose will I be interfering in OOU SUG elections?

" Walahi, I know nothing about what they are talking about, I believe those people are sponsored because this is something I know nothing about. It's all lies, I don't care who becomes what among the OOU students, it's their affairs and so they should not drag my name into their politics," Adekoya.

Also reacting, Comrade Samson Ajasa, claiming to be  the chairman, NANS Ogun JCC, absolved Hon. Adekoya of any interference in the affairs of the students body in the state and dismissed the allegations against him as false.

Describing Damilola as an impersonator, Ajasa alleged that the election that brought Kehinde Damilola and his executive into office was a kangaroo one.

He also drew  the attention of security agents within the state to take note of them and their actions as it may mar the safety and security of entire students in the gateway state. 

"The media statement credited to Abiodun Simeon, alleging Hon. Abdulmajeed Adekoya of dabbling into students affairs in the state is untrue. We also want to state categorically that t it is false, and misleading and an attempt by some unscrupulous elements to bring to disrepute the person of Hon. Adekoya. 

"We want to set the record straight that Hon. Adekoya is one of the few Federal Lawmakers who have been up and doing in ensuring that the students and youth constituency gets the dividends of democracy from their representatives. 

"It should be recalled that Hon. Adekoya recently donated laptops to students in the gateway state and also facilitated Google training that can enable students in Ogun state to be equipped with knowledge relevant to current tech situation, and this we appreciate," Ajasa stated.
