"The man dies in him who remains silent in the face of tyranny" Prof. Wole Soyinka.
Combatant Salutations!
Having watched keenly, as irresponsibility thrived in the Association we laboured to keep, the onus therefore lies on the Senate which is the conscience of the Association to return sanity to the Association.
Having  stated the above, we wish to further state categorically that:
1. Having exhausted the constitutional 30days after pre-convention to hold convention.

2. With the current electoral committee being unable to hold a free, fair and credible election putting both senators, aspirants and students of Delta State origin in undue hardship and harmsway.
3. Inability of the committee to address the senate before the election therefore making this committee unaccountable to Delta State students who commissioned them.
4. Use of touts to abuse the sanctity of the gathering of students in the guise of local security.
The Senate regrets the pain and inconveniences which this practical play of irresponsibility from powers that be has caused the growth and transition of this noble Association, hence we therefore mandate that all activities relating  to the present election by this electoral committee  be put on hold .
To this effect ,the Senate hereby announce  that there will be an emergency sitting of the Senate two weeks from today to address the issues on ground and set up a PRO-NADESSTU electoral committee (venue will be communicated soon) .
The Senate by this notice calls on all zonal coordinators and senators to get set for the mother of all decisions as regards NADESSTU as we warn that any interference from any external force on the decision  of the senate  forthwith will be faced with strict Comradic cum constitutional Confrontation from the senate.
Thanks for your compliance.
Yours in Scientific Aluta

NADESSTU NATIONAL ELECTION CLOSES UNCEREMONIOUSLY


The Student Election Which Was supposed to hold on Saturday 31 August, 2019 was greeted with so much expectation for the future of the Delta State Student's community.
All delegates were seen at Labour House Asaba, the venue of the convention, the student's delegates were accredited successfully on saturday instead of the published friday; yet the delegates endured. Just after the accreditation on saturday the electoral committee announced a postponement of the election to sunday and all delegates were relocated to their hotels to reeturn on sunday by 8:00am.





Report from our correspondence on sunday,noted that the south and the eastern zones were reaccredited successfully while the north and west were still undecided whether to come in. according to an anonymous source it was noted that it was due to logistics issues and certain unfulfilled committments from the electoral committee which include mobilization.

According to Aluta News correspondence the disapperance of the Electoral committee chairman capped the whole event as it brought the convention to a halt amidst rising tempers,open confrontation and visible chants of protest by the delegates(senators) which after sometime a publication was realeased about the indefinite postponement of the election.

Frustration of delegates following the abrupt halt of the convention

North and west senators waiting to be accredited 


the Senators who angrily began to leave the venue especially those from the north and west due to academic engagement on Monday left with so much disappointment.


Angry Northern Delegates leave the venue
 A senator who pleaded anonymity for security reasons noted in an interview

  "if a student association cannot hold a hitch free election what then do we expect from a nation where the rot has already been planted from the supposed future of tomorrow; we are disappointed in the electoral committee and the leaders of the association. so much interest,tussle and unnecesssary negotiations.
We saw leaders making alignments on behalf of students just for their selfish aims."

"you can imagine a student election having touts as security when we have police,dss and soldiers on ground.
can you not see how senators are manhandled, aspirants are extorted;is this the kind of future that we want for our noble association? i just hope senators are seeing and will do the needful."

As at the time of this publication we were uncertain what was next decision from the organisation will be.
