The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission () to issue certificate of return to Sen. Isiaka Adeleke of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

Mr Adeyemi Azeez, National Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the association made the call in a statement on Wednesday, in Abuja.

According to Azeez, as a body which respects the rule of law, NANS stands by the ruling of the tribunal which declared Adeleke as winner of the Osun 2018 gubernatorial .

The ruling on March 22, was read by Justice Peter Obi, on behalf of the three-man tribunal.

The tribunal voided the election of Gov. Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives (APC) and declared Adeleke as winner.

The PRO also distanced itself from the purported protest by some self-acclaimed student leaders against the ruling of the Tribunal.

“We believe that the intellectual component of the youth demography and media are the major catalyst of development anywhere in the .

“The leadership of NANS wishes to use this opportunity to re-instate our earlier position on the verdict of the Osun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal.

“This is mandating INEC to issue certificate of return to Sen. Isiaka Adeleke, the candidate of the PDP as the duly elected of Osun State, having polled the highest number of votes during the Sept. 18, 2018 Governorship Election in the state.

“In the same vein, I wish to use this opportunity to state categorically that the leadership of NANS is not part of the sponsored protest organised by some self-acclaimed student leaders against the ruling of the tribunal.

“These set of student leaders, of which majority are not students or life Students, are political contractors and jobbers who are roaming the streets of Osun on daily basis.’’

Azeez further called on the political class to desist from dragging the name of NANS into their political games.

Buhari reacts as Police discover torture center in his village 20191008 173707

President Muhammadu Buhari has commended the Police Force for the discovery of a child-theft racket in Kano State and fake correctional centers in Kaduna and Katsina states.

DAILY POST recalls that the Police last Monday discovered another torture centre meant to be a reformation place for children with character deformation in Daura, Katsina State.

The Police raided the centre following a riot by the inmates over excessive abuses.

Reacting to the discovery, Buhari in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, on Saturday, urged the police to sustain these good efforts across the country.
He noted that such arrests were in line with his commitment to human rights and dignity of the citizens regardless of their age, religion and ethnicity.

Buhari said he would not support criminality under any guise, including the abduction of children and selling them off illegally.

He maintained that no responsible democratic government would tolerate the existence of the torture chambers and physical abuses of inmates in the name of rehabilitation of the victims.
He, therefore, lauded the efforts of the police in exposing these human rights abuses by individuals and criminal groups.

Buhari expressed optimism that these efforts would be sustained to check illegal activities of this nature.
The President appealed to members of the general public to remain vigilant and assist security agencies in crime prevention and control by reporting the existence of criminal activities around their communities.

He said: ”The sharing of human intelligence is everybody’s responsibility in order to make our society safe and this government is ever committed to supporting the police to be more effective in the performance of its duties through proper funding and motivation of its personnel.”

Buhari issues stern warning to state governors over contracts

Buhari issues stern warning to state governors over contracts 20191008 172446

President Muhammadu Buhari has warned that the Federal government might be forced to re-allocate projects elsewhere if any state government or communities create unnecessary impediments in the allocation of land or access to such lands for federal projects.

Buhari’s warning was contained in a statement signed and forwarded to DAILY POST by his Media Aide, Garba Shehu, on Saturday.

According to Buhari: “The idea of chasing away contractors on-site or making undue demands from them by local communities or the deliberate actions of State governments to frustrate the allocation of lands for federal projects is an antithesis of the people’s welfare.”

The statement disclosed that, in a recent directive to Ministers, the President requested Ministers in his government to have the states clear all lingering land issues threatening federal projects under their supervision or have such projects moved to willing states where that becomes impossible.

Buhari regretted that, “some communities in the states are frustrating the siting of federal projects in their areas by making impossible demands for land compensation on contractors and even chasing them away from site where they are unable to meet up.

“To compound matters, contractors kept away from site often make further demands on payment whenever they return to site.”

The Presidency noted that the refusal to allocate lands for federal projects or the growing hostility by communities against contractors on site are hurting the interests of the very people governments are elected to serve.

”By denying Federal government lands for projects and creating unnecessary obstacles for the execution of these projects, it may be unfair to turn around and accuse the same Federal government of marginalising people in terms of projects allocation.

“When it comes to the welfare of the people, governments at all levels should be united by the common goal of improving the well being of the people, regardless of political affiliation”

“It is, therefore, impossible to spread Federal government projects when petty demands or politics is allowed to override the higher interest of the people,” the statement added.
