Nigerians have taken to social media to expressed their disappointment at the leadership of the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS for allegedly collecting bribe from President Muhammadu Buhari.
Some members of NANS on Thursday, visited the president at the presidential villa in Abuja.
During the visit, NANS president, Bamidele Akpan, promised President Buhari 20million votes in the coming presidential election holding this February.
I can assure you (Buhari) today that if this constituency (Nigerian students) is well utilized, we’ll pull nothing less than 20 million votes for you.
This statement has got a lot of Nigerians fuming in Twitter, as they expected that NANS should be angry after being at home for 7weeks, because of striking lecturers but rather endorsed Buhari for second term instead.

When we say NANS is the most USELESS Students' Org., You don't need to go far to confirm it. Listen to a President who's colleagues have been at home for 2months because FG failed to implement the MOA of 2017, and conclude the renegotiation of the 2009 agreements with ASUU pic.twitter.com/TQc9krmcz5

Reports reaching me is that One hundred and fifty million naira (N150,000,000) was doled out to the leadership of NANS during this visit.
Their job is to hold protests against ASUU and other striking units instead of holding the govt accountable.
Congratulations to NANS boys pic.twitter.com/jmHkJuNCEm

Graduates, working class, youth corpers, fathers, mothers are shouting #EndAsuuStrike, FG & ASUU are always walking out of each other, with no solutions yet, only for National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) members, to go and be praising Buhari & insulting ASUU. Madness

The President of NANS says ASUU is being economical with the truth, meaning that they have taken a side. I thought they said they were going to embark on a protest on 7th January. Protest against who, ASUU?

We have gone from a NANS that fought Military dictators to one that now kisses the ass of politicians.
