Ondo State government has congratulated Akinteye Babatunde; popularly known as BABTEE on his emergence as the Vice President (External Affairs) of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS).
In a statement signed by the Senior Special Assistant to Governor Akeredolu on Youths and Students’ Affairs, Muyiwa Ogunyemi, ODSG described Babatunde’s victory as collective efforts of the Sunshine State, to stand resolute, dogged and resilient against oppression, intimidation and cowardice.
Ogunyemi said, “The attempt to disqualify you through the back door was a reflection of your popularity among the students community. Now that you have finally won the election, the index of unification is ascertained.
“I congratulate every Nigerian student, all relevant stakeholders who stood in the gap to advocate for what later has become a resounding victory.
“I thank the most Ideological Zone of NANS, NANS ZONE D for remaining committed to its values and ideology.
“It is my prayers that in this new found victory the indelible impact of the vibrancy of the sunshine state will be found in your administration.
“It is a reward for the excellent service while you held sway as ONDO NANS JCC CHAIRMAN. You performed outstandingly and delivered in all ramifications. I have no doubt you will do more.”
While congratulating Governor Akeredolu and other stakeholders for the victory, the SSA advised BabaTee to be of good representation.
