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.

 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.
