There was commotion on Saturday as two factions of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) announced the emergence of two different candidates as President of the national student governing body.
Swagenews gathered that NANS is the national body of Nigerian students studying in Nigerian tertiary institutions and in diaspora.
The two candidates announced as factional presidents are Umar Lawal of the Department of Library and Information Science of the Bayero University, Kano and Usman Umar of the Federal University Dutse.
It was gathered that controversies had rocked the student body following internal tussles. The tussles had led to the postponement of the elections which were earlier slated for last Saturday.
Despite moves for reconciliations, elections were held in two different locations which led to the emergence of two factional presidents.
However, the student body has called for an emergency press briefing to intimate the public with the recent happenings.
