Students laud Ajimobi
THE National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has pledged support for the second term bid of Governor Abiola Ajimobi.
The Deputy Coordinator of NANS, Zone D, Mr. Afolabi Adesina, spoke on behalf of the students as the campaign train of the governor visited Apete and Awotan communities in Ido Local Government Area of the state on Tuesday.
The students’ leader said they were rooting for Ajimobi’s second term for acceding to the demands they made before the 2011 governorship election.
His words: “We will support you because of the pervading peace and security in Oyo State. You promised us that you would curb thuggery and violence, and you did so. Secondly, we asked you to reduce our school fees and did so by 50 per cent.
“The third reason we are supporting your re-election is because you gave all the tertiary institutions in Oyo State, including the University of Ibadan and other federal institutions, 14 buses.
“In addition, primary and secondary school students now enjoy free bus ride to and fro school. This has brought great financial relief to their parents.”
Ajimobi, while addressing the people of the council area, including the Muslim and Christian communities, promised that the Ijokodo-Apete-Awotan Road currently under construction would be completed in the next six months.
