JOS – NATIONAL Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, yesterday, joined in condemning the violence in parts of the country arising from the result of the presidential election, and what it views as distorted reports of the crisis by some foreign media.

NAN’s President, Mr. Jude Imagwe, said in a chat with newsmen that the violence was uncalled for after an election adjudged by local and foreign observers as one of the freest in the history of the country.
He said: “We congratulate Nigerian voters for going out en masse to exercise their civic duty, while also urging them to do same next Tuesday. We also congratulate INEC for a good job and hope that the commission will improve on its performance in the remaining elections.

“The governorship and House of Assembly election are the most troublesome because they touch directly on the grassroots, which is the hub of elections in the country. They should mount more campaigns so that the violence will not lead to poor turn-out during the election.”
