The senator from AOCOED on another verbal lines unfastened the chronicle of Qouwiyy and desecrated the ugly attitude of the former chairman who intentionally insisted to issue an official congratulatory message to Kappo Olawale, the Zonal coordinator on his emergence which he (Qouwiy) witnessed and actively participated in the electioneering and even after several persuasions from the senators.

Alagbe David and Comr. Emmanuel Olamide intersectly made LASU a counter nomination. The two nominations was debated and the final result favoured MOCPED. While Comrade Emmanuel seconded MOCPED nomination, LASU President gave a tenable wherefore the school isn’t the best option for now.
The unilateral concession of MOCPED as the host of 2020 NANS LAGOS JCC convention swinged activeness on slatting the date of the convention. Lagos senators in reiteration of their stated objective to dynamically reposition the association to standard and the quest to activate an unexampled NANS LAGOS JCC agreed to have the transition and electioneering process on 17th and 18th of July 2020.
Consequently upon fulfillment of the pre-convention agenda and the observations of AOB’s, the Ag.
