 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!!

Comr. Adeyemi Azeez

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.

Comrade Onyeamai reading from his Text at the Press-house instructed the immediate suspension of the activities of this committee and announce that there will be an emergency sitting of senate to decide the fate of the Association moving forward.

The Press Text Reads






"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.

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.
