The Ebonyi State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described as mockery, the endorsement of Governor David Umahi for the 2023 presidential election by the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS)
According to the PDP in a statement by the state PDP Publicity Secretary, Silas Onu, on Sunday, NANS simply made a mockery of itself by endorsing a man who had zero empathy for the plight of students.
“My immediate reaction was, President of what? It then dawned on me that NANS and the people (warriors) in Dave’s government are one and the same.
“No student body worthy of its name will endorse a governor who has zero interest in education. Once again, I challenge the governor to mention just one person that has received any form of scholarship from his administration since 2015. There is none and so, I won’t expect any response”, Onu said.
NANS made the endorsement after its 65th Emergency Senate meeting held at the Ecumenical Centre, Abakaliki.
