Friday- 11th June, 2021: Former presidential candidate and Nigerian human rights activist, Omoyele Sowore has countered the decision of the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS to suspend its planned protest on June 12.

NANS had scheduled to stage protest in all parts of the country on June 12 to decry the deteriorating security situation ravaging the country particularly the abduction of students in the North and other regions.

But on Friday morning, the NANS’ President, Sunday Asefon, announced that the planned protest has been suspended over the fear of being hijacked by some elements who may have other agenda.

According to a tweet on his official Twitter page on Friday, Sowore said the protests would hold.

He stated this why reacting to the suspension of the report by NANS.

The tweet reads, “Great Nigerian Students: Indefatigable, Unstoppable, Ever Conscious, Uncompromisable, Fastidious, Militant, Resilient Nigerians Students will protest tomorrow!

“#BuhariMustGo #June12thProtest #KeepitOn Aluta Continua, Victory is Certain!”
