The letter of sack [suspension] alleged of fund embezzlement.

The President of the Union had rejected the N7million from the Governor as protest for the governor’s refusal to pay scholarships fees which the administration had pledged to do. The Governor, as 247ureports.com learnt wanted to use the N7million to silent the Student Union into not raising dust over the owed monies.

So a few days following the end official launching of the scholarship on February 24, the Governor threw into gear the plot to remove the Union President.

Further investigation indicates that the Governor may have other motives for working to remove the Student Head. Beyond the embarrassment meted to him, the Student Head is reported to come from a part of Bauchi State considered hostile to the part of Bauchi which the Governor comes from. Particularly, the Student Head, according to the Governor’s people are suspected to be working with the opposition – likely a one time gubernatorial aspirant who lost out to the Governor.

But the President of the Student has denied all wrong doing.[see letter below]. One of the executive members who spoke to 247ureports.com indicated that the State Governor has managed to reach out to the other bodies within the Student Union. He said the President has not done anything thing wrong. His words, “the fact is that they want him to be compromised, while the president had in many times pledged to work freely for the betterment of Bauchi State”.
