Scholarship: NAKASS Distance Self from Vote of no Confidence on Governor el-Rufai
By Alex Uangbaoje, Kaduna
The National Association of Kaduna State Students (NAKASS), led by its President, Comrade Yahaya Abdullahi, has distance itself from the vote of no confidence passed on the Kaduna state governor Malam Nasir el-Rufai recently by Comrades J.T. Gwaza, Secretary General of the association.
The Comrade Abdullahi’s group, at a press conference, condemned a press release by a group they called, “some imposters” with reference to the 21days ultimatum given to Kaduna State government on local scholarship dated 10th October, 2018.
According to them, “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 who ever 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.”
They however pleaded to the Kaduna State government and other relevant bodies saddled with the responsibility of the local scholarship to fast tract the payment.
