Bamidele Impeached As NANS President Over $200K Embezzlement Scandal by State001: 2:46pm On Oct 13
UPDATED: ‘Mugabe’ Bamidele Finally Impeached As NANS President

By Ogochukwu Isioma, Abuja

The embattled President of National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Mr. Danielson Bamidele Akpan has been impeached by the Senate Arm of the Association at an emergency Senate meeting which held on Tuesday, bringing an end to his ‘Mugabecious’(two-and-a-half-year) reign.

CAMPUS GIST reports that Akpan was impeached at the meeting which had in attendance current senators (i.e Students' Union presidents), past and serving NANS leaders and stakeholders.

Our NANS correspondent reports that the meeting held on the popular videoconferencing App, Zoom due to the COVID-19 protocols.

Akpan was impeached over alleged incompetence, misappropriation of fund, corruption, elongation of one-year tenure, disregard for NANS Charter of Demand and insensitivity to the plight of Nigerian Students, amongst others.

CAMPUS GIST gathered that his Vice President (National Affairs), Mr. Chidi Ilogebe was immediately announced as Acting National President pending the conduct of fresh elections.

Although Ilogebe is Special Assistant (SA) on Students’ Affairs to the Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, against the NANS Charter Demand which forbids excos from holding political positions.

Bamidele has been asked to return ALL NANS property and funds in his possession or be forcefully and fully recovered, while the National Convention to elect new officers have been fixed for November 12th - November 15th 2020 in Abuja.

Meanwhile, the impeached NANS president, who recently got married using his Office, has been enmeshed in over $200,000 fraud scandal. He has been accused of embezzling the fund said to have been released by the Nigerian National Petroleum Commission (NNPC) as palliative to Nigerian students.

Akpan was said to have negotiated the amount with the nation's oil body as a way of shutting the mouth of students' from protesting or kicking against the recent hike in pump price.

Although he has denied the allegation, but many damning evidence and eyewitnesses have come out to collaborate the report, including his consultant who claim to have strike the deal with the NNPC for a percentage.

Also, a former aspirant for the position of NANS president, Amb. SA Lukman, has petitioned the erstwhile president Akpan before the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over the $200k largesse.

PRESS RELEASE
For Immediate Release

*RESOLUTION OF THE NANS SENATE: NANS PRESIDENT IMPEACHED FOR FINANCIAL IMPROPRIETY AND CRIMINAL DIVERSION OF STUDENTS COVID-19 PALLIATIVES*

The Senate of the National Association of Nigerian Students has impeached the President of NANS, Mr. Danielson Bamidele Akpan and sworn in Comrade Chidi Ilogede, who hitherto was the Vice President National Affairs as President of NANS with immediate effect.

A Committee set up by the NANS Senate to investigate allegations of misappropriation and diversion of students Covid-19 Palliatives indicted the President for financial impropriety, criminally diverting students Covid-19 palliatives, fraudulently concealing information relevant to help the growth of the organization and the development of the country and having abused his office by doing arbitrary and unlawful acts which are prejudicial to the rights of other members of the NANS all in violation of the Code of Conduct of an official of NANS as enshrined in Schedule 3 of the Constitution and Charter of Demand of NANS;

The former NANS President was also indicted for having not been remorseful despite being exposed that he had received the money as alleged but rather resorted to threatening the lives of members of the Committee in an attempt to deter and intimidate them from carrying out their Constitutionally mandated function and also threatened the life of the Senate President Mr. Gambo Abu Mohammed;

This Committee recommended to Senate that in exercise of the Senate powers and functions encapsulated and vividly provided in Article 13 (a) of the Constitution and Charter of Demand of NANS to remove the President, Mr. Danielson Bamidele Akpan from office and expel him from the Organization with immediate effect. His actions, the Committee said had done irreparable damage to the NANS and brought it to disrepute thereby making NANS a laughing stock among reasonable persons in the society. It also said the action was to serve as a deterrent to other officials of NANS present and in the future to know that they cannot take the organization and its membership for a ride.

The former NANS President had received huge sums of money from some government agencies including the NNPC for students Covid-19 Palliatives and diverted the money while denying he did not receive any money at all. A vast majority of the students were shocked when evidence was uncovered by the Investigation Committee proving that he received the money as alleged.

Therefore in exercise of the powers of the Senate as contained in Article 13 of the Constitution and Charter of Demands and the overwhelming votes of the Senators and the earlier Vote of No Confidence passed by the National Executive Committee,

1.Mr. Danielson Bamidele Akpan hereby stands impeached and Comrade Chidi Ilogede is hereby sworn in as the President of NANS.

2. All NANS property and funds in the former President’s possession are to be fully recovered.

3.National Convention of NANS to hold immediately in 30 days precisely between November 12th -November 15th 2020 in Abuja.

All organs of NANS are hereby directed to comply with immediate effect. All security and government Agencies to be adequately notified.

Nothing shall deter us.

Signed:

Gambo Abu Mohammed
Senate President

Kabiru M. Ibrah
Senate Clerk

Give an average Nigerian political power and watch how he wallows in the corrupt ways of his leaders at the helm of affairs. But while campaigning for positions they appear as saints who knows no fraud.

I see a serious revolution coming. and for those of

you doubting, have you read about the Arab spring

and studied how it started? A time is coming
when Men/Women will wish they were Nigerians

John Elton prophesied it about forty years ago. In his words which I'll paraphrase. "Nigeria will be known for corruption all over the world. The name Nigeria will be synonymous to corruption. But in a short while, Nigeria will rise again, anyone who lays hold of a Nigerian will say I will go with you...............

Let's keep praying for the ongoing revolution

Someone should tell Comrade Chidi that his first priority as president should be the resumption of schools, if he is not able to be our voice then he is a failure.
