The National Executive Council of the Niger Delta Students’ Union Government (NIDSUG) has accused the Interim Management Committee (IMC) of Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) of meddlesomeness, saying those the agency is supporting are impostors and not the duly elected executive members of the students’ body.
The Students union called on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately sanction members of the interim Board of NDDC for sponsoring people that were never elected in their bid to fractionalize the union for surreptitious purposes.
It also berated the IMC members for deliberately causing division in the union because of the leaders’ resolve to continually speak for transparency and the stranded Niger Delta scholars.
In a jointly signed statement by both the National President of the Union, Comrade Nepba Goodness and National Secretary , Gbenga Ogunderu, copies of which were made to CAPITAL POST in Abuja Sunday, admonished the NDDC management to focus on Niger Delta Development and not dabbling into student Union politics in the area .
The statement reads in part, “We received with great shock the news of some impostors that go about parading themselves as the leader of our union.
This was after elections have been conducted into the various offices of NIDSUG at the campus of University of Uyo on 19th of January, 2020 where Comrade Nepba Goodness led national executive was elected and inaugurated at the congress.
“We are however surprised that a group of impostors that go by the names of Dauebi Ekadi Joey, Maloo Dgreat among others have been parading themselves as the National President and other Executive members of NIDSUG.
“These imposters were sponsored by the IMC to protest in the name of our union on 20th July, 2020 , during the recently held investigative public hearing of the House of Representatives Committee on NDDC”.
“We hereby warned that the act of promoting imposition or factionalisation within NIDSUG , by NDDC’s IMC , can truncate the existing fragile peace in the Niger Delta.
“We therefore call on His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari to as a matter of urgency, call the IMC of NDDC to order.
“This act of encouraging imposters is capable of breaching the needed peace in the Niger Delta region. The latest divisive antics of the IMC is also capable of bringing the good efforts of our dear President in the Niger Delta region to nothingness “.
The students union also admonished the general public to discountenance whatever information that may emanate from the impostors on their behalf and consequently called on the Police and other law enforcement agencies , to effect the immediate arrest of the impostors and bring them to justice to serve as deterrence to others.
