The Southwest chapter of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) presented a certificate of endorsement to Atiku Abubakar on Thursday.
The endorsement took place during the presidential campaign rally of the PDP in Oyo State.
Atiku, who was excited by the endorsement, however, reiterated his plan to restructure the country if elected president.
Addressing a cheering crowd of party faithful and supporters in Mapo Hall Ibadan the venue of the rally, Atiku explained that the restructuring exercise would entail devolving more powers to the states and local governments and fiscal federalism to empower the people.
The Wazirin Adamawa also pledged to promote national unity by forming an inclusive government that would give every section of the country a sense of belonging.
He thanked the people for their show of love and Governor Seyi Makinde for making the Oyo rally possible.
Atiku promised to promote the rapid initialization of the Southwest region and promised to implement to the latter the five-point agenda contained in his campaign manifesto.
The rally witnessed a huge turnout of who-is-who in the party from within and outside the South West region, including members of the Board of Trustees and the National Working Committee.
Serving and former governors, former and serving members of the National Assembly were also present.
