NANS seeks speedy presidential assent on upgrade of Ilaro Poly The leadership of National Association of Nigeria Students (NANS) in Ogun State have called on President Muhammadu Buhari to expressly assented to the Bill upgrading the Federal Polytechnic, Ilaro to University. The student's body in a statement signed by its Ogun State JCC Chairman, Damilola Simeon noted that the speed assent of the Bill by the presidency would prevent unnecessary bureaucracy that may serve as impediment to the Bill. NANS therefore, commended the promoter of the Bill, Senator Solomon Adeola (Yayi) for his tenacity in reintroducing the Bill after the initial rejection by the 8th Assembly. "At a time when the continuous disregard of the Academic sector from the Federal government is reaching its climax, it’s indeed heartwarming to see substantive, deliberate and intentional action being taken to ameliorate the rot in the sector and the same time catapult the educational system to a new high. "As the leadership of the National Association of Nigerian Students in Ogun State, we’re ecstatic to hear of the passage of a bill that seeks for the upgrade of the Federal Polytechnic, Ilaro to a University by the Nigerian Senate House. "The bill sponsored by Senator Adeola Olamilekan YAYI, will instantly empower the institution to award degrees to students, further increase the institution’s research strength and add to the school’s pedagogical impacts. "We recognise the tenacity of Senator Olamilekan Adeola for not backing off after the initial rejection of the bill at the 8th Senate, but rather He reintroduced it at the 9th Senate where it met with success. This singular act of doggedness have established Senator Olamilekan Adeola as a formidable friend of the Students constituency. "The timeliness and relevance of this bill cannot be overemphasised and such we urge President Muhammad Buhari to as a matter of urgency assent to this bid and avoid any unnecessary bureaucracy that may serve as impediments. "The leadership of NANS Ogun JCC under the charismatic captainship of Comrade Damilola Simeon Kehinde (DAOSMOS) remains undeterred in spotlighting, repelling and combating of inordinate actions that may negatively affect the Nigerians while relentlessly celebrating meritorious acts towards the constituency."
