A group called the Coalition of Osun State Students Movement has denied that Osun university students have endorsed Governor Rauf Aregbesola for second term.
The group leaders who held a press conference in Osogbo says it condemns National Association of Osun State Students and the Joint Campus Committee who held a solidarity protest in support of the striking lecturers of Osun State-owned tertiary institutions because it later came out to support the governor while the teachers are still on strike.
“We of the coalition of Osun State Students’ bodies condemn in strong terms the ‘sponsored’ solidarity rally carried out by the Joint Campus Committee, Osun State few weeks ago in support of Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola’s re-election bid and also the press statement issued by the leadership of the National Association of Osun State Students’ national secretariat to endorse the governor for a second term.” The group said.
The gubernatorial election holds on 9th August 2014.
