Against any insinuation making the round, Comrade Yahaya Usman Kabo has said that he is the bonafide president of the National Association of Kano State Students (NAKSS).
The president, who was at the premises of the Triumph Publishing Company Limited in Kano metropolis, dropped a statement in respect of his position as the president of the association.
The NAKSS president, who was accompanied by other members of the association to the premises of the company recently, in the statement, explained that he emerged victorious as the legitimate leader of the association during an election to that effect which was certified by the Independent Electoral Committee of the association (NAKSSIECO) last year.
He said he was inaugurated on April 10 this year and received his certificate of return from the state governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje. He added that he was sworn-in by the state Attorney-General and Commissioner of Justice, Barr. Muhammad Lawan.
Based on this, according to the statement, he insisted, he remained the authentic president of the association. Comrade Kabo called on security agencies to immediately arrest any one parading himself as the adopted leader of the association.
The NAKSS president advised that: “restrictions should not be misused to silence minorities, who are mostly government officials, to divert the mindset of the state students.
He also urged the state government, under the leadership of Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje to urge its officials from interfering in the association’s affairs.
