The students say the appointment of a non-indigene is insulting since their tax and that of their parents ever and will never come to Ogun State.
The National Association of Nigerian Students, Ogun State Chapter, has kicked against the alleged move to appoint a non-indigene as the Special Assistant to Governor Ibikunle Amosun on Student Affairs.
The student body stated this in a protest letter written to the governor, jointly signed by Azeez Oyedele (President), Jelili Osho (General Secretary) and AbdulGaffar Balogun (Senate President).
The students argued that it would be insulting for the governor to consider an outsider instead of an indigene for the position.
“With all humility, your excellency, we will like to draw your attention to the fact that your excellency is about to shave our heads, therefore we should be involved in the process. Base on this fact, we implore your excellency, not to appoint non-indigene as SA on students, whose tax and that of their parents ever and will never come to Ogun State,” the students said in the letter.
“We also with humility advise your excellency not to appoint the foreign base or those that schooled abroad who never experience what we are experiencing and who hardly know our society,” they added.
The students recommended the appointment of any past student leader who is an indigene of the state for the position.
“We believe your excellency can do it again as you did in the appointment of SA on Labour Matters in person of Comrade Ogundipe. Our governor is known to be a man of virtue who always puts round peg in round hole,” they said.
