RE: A COMMEMORATIVE ON THE SUSPENSION OF THE FIVE EXECUTIVE MEMBERS OF THE STUDENTS UNION
It has come to the notice of the Parliament of the Student Union concerning the five suspended students union executive members who were suspended by the student union Parliament on the 12th of February, 2022, in the persons of Comr. Vanessa Egbeahie -Vice President, Comr. Afolabi Olaniyi –Public Relations Office (PRO), Comr. Igbinovia Daniel –Director of Welfare, Comr. Eloghosa Idahosa –Director of Finance, and Comr. Oboh Wisdom –Director of Socials, who have been found flaunting the suspension which is seen as a disregard not only to the Parliament but to the Student Union as a whole.
The suspended student union PRO has been seen flaunting the suspension by presenting himself as the mouthpiece of the union in several broadcasts signed by him, and some other members of the suspended executive members who kept presenting themselves in official capacity as student union leaders in the midst of their suspension. For clarity sake, the Parliamentary arm of the union thereby reemphasize and remind the public that five members of the executive council are still under suspension, and it has not been lifted and these suspended executives are expected to stop parading themselves and acting in whatsoever capacity in the name of the union.
The public is to take note and henceforth cease to regard them for the time being in whatever official capacity pending the report of the Investigative committee set up by the Parliament and the actions of the Parliament as regarding their status in the executive council of the student union.
The five suspended executive members are hereby by this notice advised to adhere to caution by respecting the powers of the Parliament and the student union constitution; and cease in their direct or indirect actions that flaunts the state of their suspension, as failure to adhere would mandate the Parliament to act within the provisions of the student union constitution to the latter. They are also advised to refrain from official activities that affect or relates to the union during the period of investigation.
The Parliament requires them to respect the condition of the suspension and trust the Parliament in good faith to come up with a fair investigative report and to determine their future in the executive council of the student union.
God bless the Union.
God bless University of Benin.
God bless Nigeria.
