Factional President emerges after NANS elections
The OWL Campus media also reported that a faction not comfortable with the outcome of the election emerged. It is led by Gideon Obande who attends the same school as the president-elect. He had 7 votes at the end of the election.
He alleged that the election, which saw Danielson Bamidele becoming the president-elect was marred by irregularities as there were some individuals who meddled in the process in their attempt to impose “stooges” on all students.
The faction of Bamidele has not reacted to this development as at the time of filing this report.
