Godstime Chukwubuikem Samuel and the Honourable Minister of state, Federal ministry of education in Abuja, having the speaker, deputy majority leader and chief whip positions zoned to South, while deputy speaker, majority leader and deputy chief whip positions are zoned to North.
The NSP constitution section 7 clearly stipulated that the tenure of every session will not exceed 13 months.
The NSP board of trustees also visited the national patron of NSP who is the speaker of the federal house of Representatives; Rt.Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila to notify him of the way forward. Gbajabiamila noted that the students parliament is a breeding ground for future national legislative icons who will take over from them in years to come.
