The students who gathered at the Comrade Oluwaloseyi Solomon Babaeko campaign office in Kajola Kabba, commended his noble role in the students movement, used the opportunity to honour him as the ICON of nation building.
The NANS warned the State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, the Speaker of the Kogi State House of Assembly, Prince Yomi Kola who is also seeking reelection as candidate for the All Progressives Congress (APC) against any attempt to rig the forth coming election, especially in Kabba/Bunu constituency.
The over 30,000 000 strong student body promised to mobilize 5000 Nigerian students to monitor the March 16 election to forestall rigging, which maybe an invitation to anarchy. Other speakers at the events were comrades Dare, Sunday Eseyin and Ojo Victor.
