Nigerians do not seem very happy about this and they’ve questioned why young people can’t be trusted to lead the student body.

One Twitter user reacted to Asefon’s win, writing: “Asefon, 43, President NANS was NANS Coordinator Zone D in 2013 while a student of Ekiti State University, EKSU. 2020, he is still a student of EKSU. 7 years after!”

Another  wrote: “I know Asefon as NANS coordinator  when I was in 300L in  EKSU.I graduated 6 years ago and the guy is still parading himself as a student.”

Another said: “95% of NANS excos nordey gree graduate bcz of embezzlement. Dey study frm full time to part time, frm part time to weekend program, frm weekend program to sandwich, frm sandwich to distance learning, frm distance learning to online program…”

“The moment you realize that a youth can’t even win NANS Presidency. So much for posturing,” another wrote.

Hon Ben Igbakpa, the Honorable member representing Ethiope in Delta state wrote in defence of Asefon: “As a PGD student of EKSU, Asefon Sunday is qualified to be NANS President. Critiquing his emergence because he is 43 years old is an improper assumption he is too old to be a student. I do not know another country where age is the only eligibility criterion. Let’s be objective.”
