Ogun NANS JCC Insists Call For Amosun's Probe Not Political

ABEOKUTA - The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) in Ogun state has insisted that, the call for forensic auditing of the past Senator Ibikunle Amosun's led administration should not be tagged as political or misplaced. 

NANS in a counter press statement on Tuesday signed by its Ogun JCC chairman, Tomiwa Bamgbose and the PRO, Sodiya Abayomi maintained that the call by its sister body, National Association of Ogun State Students (NAOSS) on Prince Dapo Abiodun led government to probe past eight years administration of Senator Amosun was for accountability and transparency. 

THE ENCOUNTER NEWS reports that, a factional NANS Zone D leader, Oladimeji Uthman had earlier condemned NAOSS position on the probe of Amosun's administration, describing it as political and playing to the gallery. 

Uthman who is the factional Deputy Coordinator, Zone D disassociated the zone's leadership from the purported probe. 

But the NANS/JCC Chairman in the state noted that, the call for probe on the past administration in the state was due to many abandoned projects left by the Senator Amosun despite borrowing money to execute the projects. 

The students' body therefore urged the state government to set up an agency that will review the activities and spending of past administrations in the state to curb corruption among political office holders. 

The statement reads further, "the leadership of NANS OGUN STATE having observed political activities in the State in recent years wishes to state categorically that the call for forensic auditing and accountability on the part of the Senator Ibikunle Amosun's led administration should not and must not for any reason be tagged political or misplaced.

"An adage says "a guilty conscience fears accusation". For record purpose, it is very important to note that the last administration in the Gateway State examined the financial activities of the Otunba Gbenga Daniel's led administration. It is also important to note that some students were mobilised by the former administration to rain series of insult on Otunba Gbenga Daniel during one of the Court hearing in Ogun State against Otunba Gbenga Daniel. 

"So, the call on Prince Dapo Abiodun by the national leadership of NAOSS to probe the activities of the former adminstration most especially in the area of projects and financial engagement of the former administration in Ogun state should not for any reason be tagged political.

"It is also important to note that Senator Ibikunle Amosun left behind a lot of uncompleted projects in which the government borrowed a lot of money to execute but it is very sadenning and embarrassing to note that many of the projects were left uncompleted. 

"It is on this note the Apex students body in the Gateway State call on the Government of Ogun State to establish a body or agency that will review the activities and spending of  all former administrations in the State to give room for accountability and to also serve as a check on political office holders in curbing corruption in our polity.

"As students, we make bold to assert that the way and manner the resources of the State is being mobilised is of great and serious concern to us as against what was written by one impostor, Uthman Oladimeji who parades himself as the Deputy Coordinator of NANS Zone D."
