NADESSTU decry impersonation , makes 4-point  demand from incoming govt



By Josephine Idiovwan

The National Association of Delta State Students (NADESTU) has condemned the  impersonation of the Association’s national executives by non- students who  obtain funds from the State government while diverting same for personal use.

Speaking during a media parley with the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), at Asaba, the newly elected National President of NADESTU , Comrade Wiska Monday stated that the era of trading with the name of students for money-making scheme is over.

Comrade Wiska alleged that “external forces are working tirelessly to undermine this association for their pecuniary gains by mobilizing and impersonating our national executives with non students all in a bid to cover their dirty tracks and bury their conversations around their unfaithful dealings with the students.”

Pledging that his Administration will ameliorate the plight of Delta State students across the country, he promised to tackle all challenges that are undermining and dividing the association.

Comrade Wiska who was accompanied by other national executives of NADESTU as well as  the electoral committee chairman, however, celebrated Governor Ifeanyi Okowa for the success of his administration while congratulating the State Governor elect, Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, for his victory at the polls.

Assuring the incoming government of their partnership in ensuring good governance , he called  on ” all aggrieved persons to withdraw their litigation and support the incoming government for the interest of Delta State at large.”

He further prayed that “ the incoming governor should avoid appointment of multiple aides to manage the students as the current division, infighting and crises within the students community today is largely caused by the multiple persons as the aide to students affairs. We therefore wish that the governor should appoint critical aide who is a former student leader that will be given the responsibility to coordinate the students community.

“That the incoming governor should prioritize the downward review of school fees across the State own institution to reduce the suffering of our parents and encourage our students to return back to school. This is because the rate of students dropping out of school as a result of inability to pay school fees is becoming alarming”

He also encouraged the Oborevwori to “consider upward bursary review within the State and scholarship review within the State to mitigate the current economic our dear country.”

Again, he congratulated the newly constituted board of DESOPSDEC, requesting  that “the DESOPSDEC scholarship scheme should be expanded to accommodate yearly students in the oil producing areas of the State.”
