 The letter from the student body reads:

ABSTAIN YOURSELF FROM AAU, EKPOMA CONVOCATION LECTURE; NANS TELLS FAYEMI.
The National Association of Nigerian Students wish to advise the Ekiti State Governor, Dr John Kayode Fayemi to in the interest of justice, recuse himself from the convocation lecture he plans to deliver tomorrow at the Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, Edo State.

The entire public would recall that in September, 2019, the wife of the governor while on political tour of local governments within Ekiti State caused the death of two promising undergraduates at Federal University, Oye-Ekiti.



Erelu Bisi Fayemi's orderlies mainly from the Counter Terrorism Unit of the Nigeria Police Force had in a broad daylight barbarism, shot at harmless students killing two and injuring many..
Till date, the Ekiti State first family had done everything humanly possible to cover up the sad incident.

One of the slain students, Joseph Okonofua hails from Edo state where Governor Kayode Fayemi is billed to address a convocation lecture.

We maintain our earlier ban placed on the first family of Ekiti state not to visit or attend any program or engage in any activity on Nigerian campuses. It is a strong warning that this leadership will not compromise until justice is done on the #FuoyeKilling.

NANS will not sit idly watching those who sacrifice the blood of Nigerian students for transient power sustainability to further insult the sensibilities of our colleagues.
That Governor Kayode Fayemi is known for arrogance of power and mindless blood letting is enough for him and his family to stay away from our campuses.

The Ekiti State Governor would do well not to dare the resolve of Nigerian students by coming to AAU, Ekpoma as students within and outside Edo state are fully mobilized to stop the sacrilege Fayemi is about to perform.

No Nigerian, however powerful should take the life of another and still roam the nation in search of goodwill when his cloth is soaked with innocent citizens blood.
What impactful lecture will Governor Kayode Fayemi who is unfeeling, uncaring and mafioso in nature deliver in an academic environment?
Should we wait after his exit from Ekpoma to begin to count numbers again?
The deaths around Kayode Fayemi is enough for any of us to become wary of his unsuspecting solicitation for sacrifices.

The management and senate of AAU, Ekpoma should find, immediately, a suitable replacement for Governor Kayode Fayemi as NANS would resist his entrance and stop him from killing more students whose blood he satisfactorily  donate to his oracles in renewal of earthly powers. We insist that we can no longer accept loss of students.

The leadership of NANS hereby directs immediate mobilization for the stoppage of Governor John Kayode Fayemi whose wife superintended over the killing of Joseph Okonofua and Kehinde Dada.

Should the Governor remain adamant, he should prepare more of his CTU officers so as to stroll on the blood of Nigerian students whose lives he cherishes for  his blood consuming deities.
AAU, Ekpoma is certainly the best place to ask pertinent questions as to why Fayemi's wife is licensed to kill people's children, cover up the killings with her privileged status and for Nigerian students to ensure the long awaited justice.

To be forewarned is to be forearmed!

Justice delayed is Justice denied!!

Signed:
Comr. Adeyemi Azeez

We all  are winners.

I want to succinctly state it clear that I will make sure I continue to put all efforts around these new excos to enable us (NADESSTU) achieve a common goal in my own little ways the much I can to realise the NADESSTU of our dream and I expect you to do same.

To all my Supporters (senators)  let's keep the flag waving for better days lies ahead, do not quench the fire. Yes we can achieve the NADESSTU of our dream under Godwin's leadership. He is not the enemy. No, he is not. If you fight him, you may give him no choice than to take solice in the grip of the oppressors whose chain we all wanted to break.

To the Newly elected National Executives, I wish you all a successful  tenure, always love yourselves. Do not give to rumours and back biting thereby creating the seed of discord and animosity amongst you. My availability is guaranteed at all time in order to merge my visions and dreams  with yours for the association to grow to the  envy of other associations and on lookers, only precedent on the fact that I was called upon, it will be an honour to share views, opinion and dreams.

To all government appointees on Students' matters, Youths and Education, I plead with you all to work together round the clock to give the NADESSTU a smiling face and help her from this state of docility and  suppression in order to achieve her Aims and objectives in line with the dreams and aspirations of our founding fathers being past leaders of this Noble Association, whether dead or alive.

To the stakeholders; you are like fathers to the current Executives and other members of the Association. Your  advises are golden and should never be trivialized. Your word should be your bonds. Your integrity must be upheld at all time, therefore you must not demean yourselves for any reason, you must uphold standards set by our founding fathers with a room for improvement without compromising core values while passing them to the younger generation. We should learn to remove all grievances from our body. The election have come and gone, let us try and forge ahead, let us try and chat a new cause for the association in order to build a solid and long lasting legacies for our unborn children who shall admire the beauty of our efforts when our story is told to them. Let us try to purge ourselves from all guile and personal interests and pursue the collective/ Cooperate goals/interests of the association. At all times, let the interest of the association come first before any other interest irrespective of who champions it. This I have said unequivocally without prejudice to the right or personality of no one. I have been led by my instinct. For some reasons best known to me, perhaps you also know, something tells me that we all love the association in your own ways even though our interest do not always converge as one in most cases. But we can return to our ancient land mark where we sit and harmonised ideas and come to consensus on clarion issues with no hidden motives. Love and Unity were the watch word. They should be brought back to lead us again.

Once again we all won. No one lost.


Thank you all .

I remain  Most Jnr. Comr. Sebe Godspower O.

God bless Nigeria

God bless Delta State

God bless NADESSTU

Long live NADESSSTU
