Comrade Ugwuja said they embezzled the fund but they are trying to settle the matter out of social media.
According to him, “Yes, we embezzled the fund but you know we are trying to settle the matter out of social media and I wouldn’t want to comment on the issue”.
IGBERE_TV reported that Sen. Ifeanyichukwu C. Nnamani, ACArb., President of the Senate said the duo, Comr. Ani Stephen (SUG PRESIDENT UNN) and Comr. Ugwuja Obinna (SUG PRESIDENT UNEC) called him to sign and approve the sum of #65,553,000 (Sixty five million, five hundred and fifty three thousand naira) for a project which does not exist just for them to embezzle the fund.
Ani Stephen (SUG PRESIDENT UNN) and Comr. Ugwuja Obinna (SUG PRESIDENT UNEC) were indicted by 23 members of a panel headed by the SUG Senate President.
According to the Senate President, “On 22nd July, 2021, I was called by Comr. Ani Stephen (SUG PRESIDENT UNN) and Comr. Ugwuja Obinna (SUG PRESIDENT UNEC) to sign and approve the sum of #65,553,000 (Sixty five million, five hundred and fifty three thousand naira) for the construction of 150 relaxation outdoor seats proposed as Students Union Project for 2019/2020 academic session which was suspended by the Senate on 28th June, 2021 due to agitation from students who were not pleased by the fact that their funds will be used to enrich the pockets of those that were supposed to protect their interest.”
” There are other pressing matters concerning the welfare of UNN students like:
Renovation and maintenance of hostel toilets, leaking roofs and drainage systems
Scholarship for indigent students
Installation of solar panels in hostels to improve power supply.
On this premises, I refused to give my consent and suggested for student’s congress for students opinion
In one day, 17th August, 2021, the SUG Presidents of UNN and UNEC released a false statement of account and collaborated with the Deputy Senate President without a proper Senate Plenary to enable them with the freedom to perpetrate their wicked plans.”
“I’ll continue to protect the welfare of Nigerian students and I’ll never support impunity and corruption in the Students Union Government even if my office is being threatened.”
