BBNaija: NANS attacks Ogun governor over gifts to Laycon

Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun’s gifts to the winner of the Big Brother Naija show, Olamilekan Moshood Agbelesebioba, popularly known as LAYCON has generated condemnation with the students association describing it as “height of irresponsibility and recklessness.”

Abiodun had on Tuesday during Laycon’s visit to Abeokuta appointed him as the Youth Ambassador and gifted him a three-bedroom bungalow and N5million.

Laycon, an indigene of the state won the N85 million grand prize of the reality show.

But on Wednesday, the Ogun state chapter of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), in a statement issued by its chairman, Bamgbose Tomiwa faulted the governor’s gestures.

The body said the students of Tai Solarin University of Education under The Umbrella of ENACTUS, that won a global competition that had 128 teams from about 120 countries as participants, were more deserving of the governor’s gesture.

“If we are to break it down conservatively, a 3-bedroom apartment will cost N25m. If such money had been judiciously used as expected of a responsible government, it would have refurbished at least two primary health centres in the State,” it said.
