NANS urges governors to appoint student representatives as advisers


The National Association of Nigerian Students has appealed to state governors to engage with students by appointing their representatives as special advisers.

The association said the engagement of students’ representatives would make state governors understand their needs and concerns.

The association’s Senate President, Akinteye Babatunde, in a statement made available on Thursday, urged governors to prioritise investments in education and provide adequate infrastructure and resources for learning institutions.

He stressed that by investing in the education sector and prioritising the welfare of students, governors can contribute significantly to the development of our nation and ensure a brighter future for all.

He, however, commended Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State and Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State for “their exemplary leadership and unwavering commitment to the welfare of students.”

According to him, Sanwo-Olu’s decision to appoint student leaders as Senior Special Assistants is a commendable move that demonstrates a willingness to engage with and empower the youth.
