2015: Give Us 30% Or Lose Our Support, Students Tell Politicians

Students in Ogun have stated that their political support will only be given if a 30% youth inclusion is guaranteed.

Politicians in Ogun have been asked to give youths at least 30% percent inclusion in the affairs of the state as a condition for getting the support of students in the forthcoming general elections.

Speaking at a joint news conference in Abeokuta under the aegis of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) and the National Association of Ogun State Students (NAOSS), the students insisted that  past Students Union Government (SUG), NANS and NAOSS leaders must be given a place in the political affairs of the state.

NAOSS president, Ifemosu Adewale and NAN Secretary-General,  Apoyin Taiwo in their respective statements said aspirants will be considered above the political platforms on which they choose to run.

They also called on the state government to improve the standards of education and students' welfare in all state owned institutions.
