THE National Association of Nigeria Students, NANS, has defended the award bestowed on the Senator representing Ogun East Senatorial district, Senator Buruji Kashamu, saying; ‘’It was for his untiring, exemplary and compassionate leadership style which cannot be taken away from him.
In a statement by its General Secretary, Zone D (South-West), Comrade Oloja Olanrewaju, NANS said the vast majority of students, workers, politicians and people of Ogun State, even the South-West Nigeria, appreciate his rare philanthropic disposition, noting that it accounts for his being widely accepted by his people and given the mandate to represent them at the Red Chamber of the National Assembly.
NANS said; “Senator Buruji Kashamu was the only wealthy Nigerian that came instantaneously to the Macedonia of the then dying Osun workers with the supply of 5,000 bags of rice and 1,000 gallons of kerosene due to unpaid eight months salary to the workers.
‘’This uncommon gesture will not only promote education and democracy but also give life to the hopeless workers of Osun State.’’
