The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has suspended its planned protest against President Muhammadu Buhari over a viral video allegedly showing Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje collecting bribe from a contractor.
The suspension followed the expiration of the seven-day ultimatum the students’ body gave Buhari to probe the allegation of corruption or face massive protest against the government of Nigeria and its one-sided anticorruption war.
A statement issued by the National Publicist of NANS, Adeyemi Azeez, in Abeokuta, said the body will now wait for the outcome of the report of the investigative panel set up by the Kano State House of Assembly.
The statement added that NANS’ delegation will be sent to the public hearing to make their position known on the matter.
“It is imperative to note that NANS is highly determined to monitor this to the letter, and will act accordingly on the outcome of the public hearing as observed by the three national executive members assigned on this assignment,” the statement read in part.
