Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Mau­reen Onochie

The Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Nige­rian Stu­dent (NANS) has dis­as­so­ci­ated it­self from me­dia re­ports which sug­gested that it was in sup­port of ac­tiv­i­ties of the Petroleum Min­is­ter, Mrs. Diezani Al­lisonMadueke.

A state­ment is­sued by the se­nate pres­i­dent of the as­so­ci­a­tion Com. John Shima said it “can­not be dragged into sup­port­ing poli­cies that are anti-people, anti- de­vel­op­ment and which are in­im­i­cal to the cor­po­rate ex­is­tence of Nigeria”.

He de­scribed the pur­ported sup­port by stu­dents as the hir­ing of im­pos­tors to use the as­so­ci­a­tion’s name to sup­port the em­bat­tled min­is­ter.
