I obi Emmanuel the recent Electoral committee chairman of ALADINMA STUDENTS ALLIANCE IMO STATE UNIVERSITY OWERRI
I wish to use this medium to brief on all the students who in their own hearts participated on the Alliance Election held on Saturday 11th August which was declared inconclusive
Why I declared the Election inconclusive was that the police people I was working with then suddenly turned the whole of our efforts down by telling me that the state CID police division called the DPO orji police division that he heard some people were threntening some other people's life, which after the election was declared inconclusive by me the said I should follow them to police station for more clarifications which I did
Up till this moment no evidence was shown to me concerning what brought to the cancellation of the election
I hereby notify the whole students residing at the alliance that I was forced to cancel that Election which I was not biased rather I taught it wise that all the stake holders at the alliance are highly corrupt
So in the view of this I therefore RESIGN henceforth as the electoral chairman
For me not to entangle myself with those police men and the alliance stake holders
Obi Emmanuel k
