The association made this known in a statement on Wednesday by Adeyemi Azeez, its National Public Relations Officer (PRO).
According to Azeez, as a body which respects the rule of law, NANS stands by the ruling of the tribunal which declared Adeleke as the winner of the Osun 2018 gubernatorial election.
The group also said it was not part of the purported protest by some self-acclaimed student leaders against the ruling of the Tribunal.
The statement reads in part: “We believe that the intellectual component of the youth demography and media are the major catalyst of development anywhere in the globe.
“The leadership of NANS wishes to use this opportunity to re-instate our earlier position on the verdict of the Osun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal.
“This is mandating INEC to issue a certificate of return to Sen. Isiaka Adeleke, the candidate of the PDP as the duly elected Governor of Osun State, having polled the highest number of votes during Sept. 18, 2018, Governorship Election in the state.
“In the same vein, I wish to use this opportunity to state categorically that the leadership of NANS is not part of the sponsored protest organised by some self-acclaimed student leaders against the ruling of the tribunal.
“These set of student leaders, of which majority are not students or life Students, are political contractors and jobbers who are roaming the streets of Osun on a daily basis.’’
