By Association of Campus Journalists

Edo State governor, Adams Oshiomhole, has been commended for his efforts at redesigning Edo state through a lot of development projects he has embarked on. The governor has been described as a bona fide progressive whose actions have proven his genuine commitment to giving the good life to his people.

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), in a statement issued by its Secretary General, Comr. Momodu Daniel at the University of Benin after a 5-day assessment visit to Edo state last week said it was provoked to give an unrestricted commendation to governor Adams Oshiomhole because of the outstanding performance of his administration, especially, in the area of infrastructural development.

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) used the opportunity made available by the evaluation tour of the state to pay plead for the governor's intervention in the ongoing ASUU strike.

Comr. Momodu Daniel said they were in the state on an appraisal visit to see for all intents and purposes what governor Oshiomhole was doing and to know how popular the governor was. He expressed the satisfaction of the group towards the visible projects embarked upon across different communities in the state.

Comr. Daniel, who said he was convinced that everybody means well in the ongoing ASUU strike, has urged the governor to find time out of his busy schedule to mediate in the feud between the federal government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

He beseeched the foremost labour activist and Comrade Governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole to wade into the face off between the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the Federal Government over the protracted strike action, saying that it is dangerous to prolong the closure of universities.

“This call became necessary because the governor has friends on both sides and NANS believes that they can talk through the issue and find a win-win formula that would be acceptable to all the parties”, Comr. Daniel said.
