The campaign train of Comrade Oguche Divine Omale, frontline aspirant for the position of National Public Relations Officer in the forthcoming National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) election was on Thursday, in Kogi state.
In a statement made available to Campus Gist Thursday night by the Oguche Divine Omale Campaign Organisation (ODOCO), it said the visit was in continuation of the campaign process for the NANS national election.
ODOCO said although schools have been shut nationwide owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, there was, however, need to establish and strengthen relationship with students’ leaders in the state.
Highlight of the visit was a meeting with the newly appointed Rector of the Kogi State Polytechnic, Dr. Usman Ogbo, where the team congratulated him on his emergence as the administrator of the institution, and also eulogised him on his “landslide achievement in infrastructural and administrative capabilities.”
The visibly elated rector who received members of the campaign organisation with open arms, thanked the ODOCO team for coming and wished them success in their political engagements.
He also assured Comrade Oguche Divine Omale, an indigene of Kogi State, of his full support in his aspirations and pursuit to cling on to the NANS National PRO position.
“In the overall interest of Nigerian students, we discussed about the need to reopen tertiary institutions in the country and we were informed that plans are already on ground pending directives from the federal government in the shortest possible time.
“As we resume campaign, we assure every Nigerian students through our meeting with the students leaders in every tertiary institution and in different states across the federation, that the paramount interest of Oguche Divine Omale upon emergence as the NANS National PRO is to serve the students community,” a statement from ODOCO added.
