On Delsu6 my resolve is clear
Without making any official statement as regards to Delsu6 the six departmental presidents whom where recently rusticated after their final exams, one could able to decipher whom side I’m on, I’m not relatively stating that I’m against Delsu management because I have huge respect and regards for the Dean of students Prof Orovwigho Atubi Augustus who is like a father to me, of a truth the only way out is for the management to reinstate this budding young lads home have read and relatively thrown away all writing materials as a way of bidding goodbye to academic activities for the main time but waking up to see such publications is capable of derailing any individual and can lead to some other things, since the said crime are not what we as comrades (brothers of truth and do it right?) see as crimes nor offence, i hereby make bold an appeal for the immediate withdrawals of the said publications as against the six departmental heads so that they can be reinstated as well to enable a rancour and free environment for all, I also hereby call on all stakeholders,alumni,political office holders, State Governor, commissioners, SA’s and PA’s to wade into this issue with immediate effect to proffer a lasting solution.
I’m yours faithfully
Prince Godstime OJ

Later on, TheNation reports below:

Delta State University (DELSU) has expelled four of its students, rusticated 26 and placed four others on indefinite suspension.
This action of the university was contained in a special edition of the bulletin issued by the Department of Information and Public Relations, Vice Chancellor’s office, on Tuesday 5th June, 2018.
According to the bulletin, the affected students were sanctioned for their alleged involvement in various examination malpractices.
The Nation gathered some of those affected are the departmental presidents of Mass Communication, Economics, Political Science, Sociology, Business Administration and Geography and Regional Planning departments.
However, in a swift reaction to the development, some of the affected students, when contacted, alleged that they were, indeed, being victimized by the management of the Faculty of Social Sciences for daring to raise questions over alleged misappropriation of hundreds of thousands of students’ dues.

A source in one of the departments who spoke on conditions of anonymity, said revealed “when the presidents of the respective departments noticed the way and manner the faculty president single handedly disbursed over N700, 000 for the conduct of a welcome party for 100 level students without the constitutional backing, they passed a vote of no confidence on him during congress which he (faculty president) boycotted.
“While the congress was going on, the staff adviser stormed the venue demanding who authorized the congress and threatened that they would hear from him.
“Days later, the departmental presidents were accused of plots to destabilize the peace of the university and summoned to face a panel which they did only for a bulletin to be released today stating that they have been rusticated for two semesters respectively”, the source said.
Describing the defense of the students as an afterthought, the Public Relations Officer of the institution, Freeborn Aganbi said “students who are saying that are doing so to cover up for their exam malpractice. The management of the university is not interested in victimizing or punishing any student”.

    Laws that are not beneficial to the majority should be abolished, same vain I would also say that scores should not be settled all in the name of matriculation oath
    In a proper democratical setting most of the laws of these institutions are against the national human right charter.

    So, it has just been brought to my notice that six students in Delta State University, has been unjustly rusticated.
    When I told you the management of that kindergarten school that clowns itself as a tertiary institute in Nigeria, is being run by dictators in civilians’ clothing, y’all thought I was yapping because I was primarily involved. Now, see am so.
    These are the same men and women complaining about the situation of our country, but further aiding these ills. They would strike in protest and bully their students to silence.
    One time, the dean of one faculty came to present a talk, and he started with
    ‘I’m just coming back from my son’s school, where I went to pay 700 thousand naira. If you think education is cheap, you’re mistaken.’
    When asked what his son was studying, ‘engineering’, he responded.
    ‘So, if the quality of education you offer us is top notch, why isn’t your son here?’
    Man was lost for words.
    They know it too, just like we do. The university is actually nothing to write home about. Most Nigerian university in fact. They are run by people who are exposed to saner climes, better education, and a transparent working process of how a system is run.
    They know it too, that an average Nigerian graduate is mostly those who are loyalist to every bullshit, and sell of their dignity and self respect for certification purposes. People who’d have to give in to every heated pressure, pay, have sex with, be disrespected, have their rights trampled on and violated, just to be seen as level headed, respectful, calm and collected.
    A university that had 58 returning students of less than 90. That’s 2 short of 60, and the senate signed it. But refused massive pass in year three claiming the results too good, so they had to remove 15 marks across board because they are repulsed by academic excellence. A clear case of guilty conscience. ‘Oh, we don’t tutor these students so well, so it is forbidden for them to achieve excellent grades. They can’t know more than us’
    In the end, Delsu loses on the long run. The system loses. The government loses. The country loses.
    And years from now, we’ll see the results of all these ills.

    # DELSU6 AN INJURY TO ONE IS INJURY TO ALL.
    DELSU MANAGEMENT rusticate 6 Intelligent Departmental President in Faculty of Social Science for fighting injustice.
    We therefore call on all comrades, students, leaders, stakeholders and activists to join us in bringing back unionism back to campus.
    We shall soon relocate all Union Secretariat to DELSU if management fail to reinstate our 6 Departmental Presidents.
    Here is the story line:
    The President of faculty of social science in Delta State University did a welcome/
    orientation party and other expenses not known by the student ranging up to 600k without a congress nor meeting of the stakeholders which is therefore against the constitution of the faculty, after series of plea for explanation, the Secretary of the Faculty sent text to various student including the Departmental heads that there will be Faculty congress and they all obliged and attended and jointly passed a vote of no confidence on the President and by the constitution the congress Is the highest decision making body, it can do and undo. The President took the matter to the Dean and co and came up with a summon, after summon is panel, A panel where the students were not given opportunity to explained what actually happened. The next thing we saw on air days after writing their final Exams, was publication of the 6 Students being rusticated.
    We will not allow this injustice to continue… Let’s join hand together in solidarity to reinstate #DELSU6
    Aluta Continua! Victoria Arceta!!!

    6 rusticated DELSU students alleges victimization

    ABRAKA – SIX students of the faculty of Social Science in the Delta State University, DELSU, Abraka whom were Tuesday slammed with two semesters rustication for their alleged involvement in examination malpractice, have accused the management of the university of victimization for speaking out against the spending of over N700,000 faculty departmental dues.
    According to a bulletin dated June 5th issued by the Information and Public Relations Department of the Vice Chancellor’s office, the students all of whom are departmental presidents of the Mass Communication, Economics, Political Science, Sociology, Business Administration and Geography and Regional Planning departments, were rusticated alongside 20 others.
    Four students of the university were also expelled while four others were slammed with indefinite suspension.
    One of the students, who spoke on condition of anonymity, disclosed that the reason for their rustication has nothing to do with examination malpractice as alleged by the school authorities but because of their position on political activities in the faculty.
    Puncturing claims by the students when contacted, Public Relations Officer of the institution, Freeborn Aganbi, said: “Their claim is a fallacy. Students, who are saying that, are doing so to cover up for their exam malpractice. The management of the university is not interested in victimizing or punishing any student.”
