Recall that on September 3 2022 during the NANS presidential election, things took a dramatic turn as two factions of the association independently declared two candidates, Umar Faruk Lawal of Bayero University and Usman Barambu of Federal university Duste winners of the election, causing an internal dispute within the union.

However, the outgoing president of the association, Sunday Afeson, would later go on to recognize Comrade Usman Barambu, as the ‘president-elect’ of the association despite the lingering leadership controversy.

More details later…….
