The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) in the Diaspora has elected Comrade John Ogar from the University of Sierra Leone, as its president.

Prince Ogar takes over from Evidence Ahayere, whose tenure has come to an end.

He was declared the winner after he scored the highest votes to beat Comrade Abdulrazak Abdulrahman from the South Africa University in the election held online.

In a statement, the new NANS Diaspora president vowed to make the issues of students in the Diaspora his priorities.

His words: “My administration will do everything to engage government agencies, and developmental partners, especially those in charge with the responsibility to promote and finance and invest more in our education system.

“We are coming to complement what the Federal Government is doing to promote a better education system in Nigeria.

“We have built a cordial relationship with them and we cannot do without them because they are our fathers and we have been working with them to ensure that we have a better education system in Nigeria”.

He called on Nigerian students in the Diaspora to remain good ambassadors of the country, wherever they are schooling.

He said: “Being a country’s ambassador is not limited to those appointed by the Federal Republic of Nigeria, but if you are studying outside the country, you owe Nigeria the sacred obligation to project her image very well”.
