The Special Adviser on Youth affairs to the Executive Governor of Imo state,Hon Eric Uwakwe has urged the student’s electoral body to conduct a free, fair and credible NAISS elections in the state.
The special Adviser gave the advice yesterday at the Conference Auditorium in Imo Youth Centre while addressing the students following it’s election held on Wednesday, 21st July 2021.
He also urged the electoral body to be neutral and provide a neutral base for all candidates that would participate in the polls.
“I want the electoral body in charge to conduct inclusive, free, fair and credible NAISS elections in the state,” the Special adviser said.
Hon Eric Uwakwe however urged the students to be patriotic and imbibe the spirit of sportsmanship for the overall interest and development of the state.
The Election was indeed recorded as a historic milestone and even as it was generally described by all and sundry in the state as the most free, fair and transparent in all the history of the electioneering exercises of the association over the years.
Hon. Eric applauded the students, candidates and encouraged those who emerged as winners to think of the growth, peace, security and quality results as leaders of the students.
“We decided to jettison all kinds of political interest from any angle and allowed only registered and qualified students to participate in the NAISS polls. Those who voted and those voted for were all Imo sons and daughters. The students voted for their various candidates of their choices. With the level of electoral discipline we have applied, our Students body would surely do exploit. Days are gone when Individual or cabals interferes in the students affairs. We must allow them to do the right thing”, Hon Eric Uwakwe submitted.
He therefore called on the newly elected NAISS executives not to let the association down, rather they should project Imo students to higher levels both in character and learning. He further commended the security agencies and the Electoral Committee Members for their fruitful and positive coordination towards the success of the elections.
