The National Executive Council of the Niger Delta Students’ Union Government (NIDSUG) has accused the Interim Management Committee (IMC) of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) of supporting impostors instead of the duly elected leadership of the students’ body.
This is as the students group also called on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately sanction members of the IMC of NDDC for sponsoring people that were never elected in their bid to factionalise the students union.
NIDSUG, therefore, warned that such dealings with the impostors by the interim leadership of the NDDC if unchecked, was capable of truncating the fragile peace in the Niger Delta region.
In a jointly signed press statement by both the National President of the NIDSUG, Comrade Nepba Goodness, and National Secretary, Gbenga Ogunderu, a copy of which was obtained by DailyMetroNews in Abuja yesterday, they admonished the NDDC management to focus on Niger Delta development and not dabbling into student union politics.
“We received with great shock the news of some impostors that go about parading themselves as the leaders of our union.
“This is 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 council 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 warn 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 impostors 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 nothingnes,” the students group added.
NIDSUG, therefore, 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.
