The national convention of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) ended in Abuja with the emergence of three factional presidents.
The three students who claim the presidency position include Lucky Emonefe, a student of the College of Education, Warri, Delta State; Rioborue Deniran of the Department of Mass Communication, Delta State Polytechnic, Otefe-Oghara and Pedro Obi, a Ph.D. student of Guidance and Counseling studies at Delta State University.
Controversy had risen in the association following its convention that started on November 27 in Abuja.
Both Lucky Emonefe and Rioborue Deniran, at separate media conferences in Abuja after the election, claimed that they emerged in a free and fair election.
Emonefe during his briefing warned against creating factions in the Association by aggrieved contestants, adding that Nigerian students know their leaders from the Joint Campus Committee, Zonal and the National leadership because they are involved in their elections.
He appealed to President Bola Tinubu to approve a national annual bursary of N200,000 to all Nigerian students.
