NANS Bayelsa students endorse Governor Diri for second term.

Bayelsa State Governor, Douye Diri’s re-election bid received a boost as the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) and National Union of Bayelsa State Students (NUBSS) endorsed him and his deputy, Senator Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo, for a second term.They gave the endorsement at the first-ever students summit in the state organised by the Bayelsa State Students Management Committee.
The aim of the summit is to equip students with entrepreneurial skills.
Speaking on behalf of the students, President of NUBSS Worldwide, Dennis Ebobra, said the endorsement was because of the governor’s developmental projects not only in education but in virtually all sectors.
Ebobra said their support was to reciprocate the huge investment of the Governor Diri administration in education and that they will ensure the governor returns to office to continue with his good policies for the sector and the state.
Also, NANS Zone B Coordinator, Comrade Kings Tamarautuapreye, lauded the governor for sustaining the Higher Education Students Loans Scheme, which has assisted many indigent students to continue their studies.
Comrade Tamarautuapreye said the students were happy with the governor’s administration and that their endorsement was due to his achievements and fatherly disposition.
President of the Niger Delta University Students Union Government, Precious Apiri, equally thanked the governor for the infrastructural development in the state’s pioneer university, especially the construction of a convocation arena that he recently approved for the institution.
In a remark, Governor Diri described the theme of the programme: “Transcend: Upscaling Bayelsa State Students on Entrepreneurship and Self-Development” as apt, saying it was in line with his administration’s policy on entrepreneurial development.
The governor noted that the objective of his administration was to stimulate entrepreneurship by equipping the youths with skills that would make them self-employed and employers of labour
