NAKASS Leadership Counters 21 Days Ultimatum Given El-Rufai Over Scholarship .Says Issuers Acted In Bad Faith
The leadership of National Association of Kaduna State Students (NAKASS) on Friday distance self from 21days ultimatum given to Kaduna State government on local scholarship.
A group of students led by NAKASS Secretary, Jeremiah Gwaza had addressed press over non payment if local scholarship by the State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai.
In counter press briefing at the Secretariat of NUJ in Kaduna, NAKASS President, Yahya Abdullahi in company of other leaders said, “the news came to us as a shock, as the said group do not even know the status of the scholarship they referred to.
“However, as we are speaking to
you right now, the State Government has since last two months approved
the payment of the local scholarship, the released of the funds and currently, the scholarship board is working for the sorting and other processes for the awardees which we hope, in few weeks beneficiaries will receive their alert.
“The leadership of this noble association wish to inform the students and general public that henceforth any formal communication from the association, after further deliberations by the officials will be made through the President (Comr. Yahaya Abdullahi), the Speaker (Comr Emmanuel B. Sheyin), or the President’s Spoke persons.
“In view of this, we are warning impersonators that henceforth whoever caught using the name of NAKASS in any way will face the wrath of The law.
“Hence, Jeremiah Tisan Gwaza stands suspended indefinitely for bridging
the supreme constitution of NAKASS as provided. We are of the opinion
that all those who for their selfish interest or reasons to use the name of the association in other to make claims that are not of the students interest
should avoid that, as the association will not take it lightly with any student or member of the public who impersonate or ridicule the image of the association.”
Abdullahi however pleaded that, the State government and other relevant bodies saddled with the
responsibility of the local scholarship should fast tract the payment.
