SOUTH-WEST STUDENTS STRATEGISE FOR RIBADU
Student leaders from various higher institutions in the South-West converged on Akure, the Ondo State capital on Thursday to map out strategies towards the emergence of Mr. Nuhu Ribadu as Nigeria's president next year.
The students said the former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, who is a presidential aspirant on the platform of the Action Congress of Nigeria, remained the best material for the position.
At a forum held at the Ribadu 2011 Campaign office on Oyemekun road in Akure, student union executives from 15 tertiary institutions resolved to set up various committees to work for the presidential ambition of the former EFCC boss.
They described Ribadu as the most credible among the various aspirants from various political parties who are currently in the race for the seat.
The National Vice-President of National Association of Ondo State Students Mr. Ogundana Olugbenga, who spoke on behalf of his colleagues, said the committees would form a team of vanguards in all the campuses to sensitise students on the need to support Ribadu's bid.
