The supporters of Comr. Eheli Onyema John have gone ahead to pick the form of Director of Transport for Comr. Onyema.
The onyema led faction of the National Association of Igbo Students NAIS, FUO chapter yesterday picked the SUG Election director of transport form for their choice candidate despite losing at the primaries held by NAIS on Wednesday 1st May, 2019.
While speaking to our correspondent today after a brief campaign rally at the NADESSTU congress held at west campus, Comr. Onyema said he cannot be intimidated by the decision of NAIS and that of the coordinator to deprive him of his rights.
We are in a democratic era and no one can take away what is mine. How can we be asked to pay the sum of three thousand Naira (#3,000) for ballot paper to be used for primaries and on the day of election, no vote was cast and someone was just declared a winner, he said.
According to Onyema, he was invited for a meeting at Ariolo the eve of the primaries and he got to the venue late, only to be told that the coordinator, Dr. Socrates Eboh just left some minutes back. On the day of NAIS primaries, the very same coordinator who is a staff, decided to declare his opponent, Izuchukwu as the winner of the primaries without casting even one vote. See thread below
How can you declare someone a winner on the basis that I refused to accept I’ll work with him if I loose the primaries? I know I’ll win because I have the support of majority of NAIS members, he went further to state.
His campaign manager simply identified as Softwork stated that the form was bought by the supporters of comr. Onyema and if anyone claims he is popular then let him contest his popularity at the polls on the 17th of May, 2019.
