Student Union leaders in Rivers state, have vowed not to support Governor, Nyesom Wike’s interest in saturday’s election as he is not a “student-friendly governor.”
The leaders; Comr. Monmon Precious, NURSS National President, Comr Oloni Samson Enioluwa, NISA National President, Jokiel Chinonso G amongst others, made this known in a communique after a meeting in Port Harcourt on Tuesday.
They accused the governor of neglecting students in the state, and denied report of a meeting with him Today at the Obi Wali Cultural Center to endorse candidate of the PDP, Sim Fubara for this saturday’s governorship election.
The statement reads,
The state student leadership is unequivocally disassociating itself from the prompted charade that is to be orchestrated by some imposters who parade themselves as students Leaders in the state as we have been reliably informed of an inducing 50 million Naira that has been collected by these past students leaders who were unable to talk the Governor into working mutually with the student’s community abinitio.
This vituperation is borne out of greed by belle-centered individuals who want to support the continuous negligence of the Governor for the past seven years. It should be noted that the recent desperation of the governor towards all youth bodies even when he didn’t employ any is borne out of the fear of failure and the student community will never aid any form of consolidation of this present administration.
We are also aware that some past students leaders are part of this plot to undermine genuine students’ struggles. These past student leaders have never demanded or asked the governor for anything that will better the lives of students but they want to consolidate the negligence, hatred, and relegation melted on the student community by their master E.N Wike for fifty Million Naira. This Rivers Students vehemently will resist.
“As Nigerian students, we can not aid the oppression we have suffered for the past seven years, and on that note, we ask all Nigerian Students here in Rivers State to remain calm and not fall prey to these compradors as we will resist any act that doesn’t depict the interest of Nigerian students in the state.
“We once again state that we are not part of this charade and that no legitimate student is part of it. The present administration is not a friend of students and we do not support whatever they are doing.”
