By Emmanuel Aziken

Abuja — The new executive of the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, has said that henceforth, it will commence monitoring of government expenditure at all levels even as it pledged a new phase to students’ activism in the country.

The newly elected President of NANS, Mr. Jude Imague, in his first press briefing in Abuja, also commended the court judgment restoring the 44 sacked lecturers of the University of Illorin, saying it was a good omen for the educational sector.

Imague, who came to the press conference with a bloodied head following the fracas at the election venue in Abuja, pledged that students in the country would henceforth, resist offers from politicians to wage their battles at the detriment of the country.

Imague is a University of Benin, UNIBEN, Environmen-tal Science post-graduate student.

Pledging a new phase for student unionism in the country, the new NANS President said, “this is a new brand of NANS, different from what used to obtain in the past.

“We want to return the organisation back to students with all NANS activities now to be run in school campuses,” He added.
