The National Association of Nigeria Students (NANS), Osun State chapter, has joined the ongoing June 12 protest, contrary to the decision of the national leadership of the student body.
Recall that NANS President, Sunday Asefon, announced in a Friday statement that the body was pulling out of the nationwide protest because some unnamed politicians planned to hijack it.
However, NANS, Zone D (South-West) also on Friday distanced itself from Asefon’s announcement, insisting that the planned protest would go on.
Coordinator, NANS Zone D, Kowe Odunayo Amos; and Secretary-General, NANS Zone D, Giwa Yisa Temitope signed the statement countering the earlier one by Asefon.

NANS Zone D insisted that Asefon did not speak for the association.
The Herald can report that the Osun State chapter of NANS linked up with the coalition of civil society organisations for the protest in Osogbo, the state capital.
Chairman of NANS JCI in Osun State, Comrade Oyelayo Afeez led his members to join the protest against bad governance, unemployment, insecurity and poverty in the country.
