Official Press Release
With a displeasure in mind, the leadership of NATIONAL CONGRESS OF AKOKO STUDENTS NACAS, led by Comr Akinyele Olamilekan Lemuel have received the shameful news of the daylight clash between the Ondo State ruling party APC Supporters and the Supporters of an opposition party PDP, that led to setting Campaign vehicles into ablaze, creating tension in the Community’s residents (Oba Akoko People) and thus compromised the Akoko’ peaceful atmosphere which have been maintaining for years.
In the press statement, received from COMR AKINYELE OLALEKAN LEMUEL as the Global President and spoke man to Akoko’ Students, he described the clash as “a show of shame and undemocratic act”. It’s a denial to the Electoral Acts as provided by 1999 Nigerian Constitution.
The Student’s President boasted that, Akoko land is known for peace and intellctual acumen and Akoko Students, we cannot afford the years built reputation to be eroded by any political interest/reason. Akoko shall continually symbolize peace. NACAS affirm that, “Election No Be War” and “Vote Not Fight”. On that note, NACAS as the Congress of all Akoko’Students across the globe that is also saddle with communal responsibilities, to facilitating and fostering building a peaceful Akoko land, totally decry “Akoko land using as a testing ground for any form of electoral violence.
NACAS therefore call on the State government, Akoko Rulers&Stakeholders and the political leaders of Akoko, to slide into action taking measures and policies, in order to curtail the growing wings of electoral violence suffusing our land.
