45 Year Old Civil Servant Emerges NANS President Amidst ASUU Strike


ABUJA - The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has elected Sunday Asefon as its new President amid chaos and violence that characterised its convention at the old parade ground, Abuja on Thursday.


Asefon, a civil servant with the Ekiti State Government, got 155 votes to defeat his closest rival, Olushola Oladoja, who scored 100 votes.


The 45-year old, reported to be a student of Ekiti State University, replaces Bamidele Akpan.


The election was, on Thursday, disrupted by violence.


About 20 members of the association, who gathered at the old parade ground in Abuja for the convention, sustained wounds from gunshots and machete after thugs loyal to a factional coordinator of the association in Zone D (Southwest) began attacking delegates.


The 45-year old, reported to be a student of Ekiti State University, replaces Bamidele Akpan.
