NATIONAL Association of the University Students (NAUS), in Anambra State has inaugurated their newly elected officers to carry out the activities of the association and ensure that laws and responsibilities are being carried out.
The inauguration, which took place at Anambra Newspapers and Printing Corporation’s premises attracted various schools in the state such as National Open Universit, Abagana, Nnamdi Azikiwe Universit, Awka, Chukwuemeka Odimegwu Ojukwu University, Igbariam and Uli campus, Tansi University, St. Paul’s University, Awka, among others
The secretary of the association, Steve Okpala Obi commended the initiative of the Anambra State Government, led by Governor Willie Obiano in establishing a media house like National Light, noting that the media house was once abandoned but regained its new look since the inception of the present managing director of the organisation, Sir Chuka Nnabuife.
Mr Okpala thanked the MD/CEO of ANPC for being supportive and accepting them whenever they come around to hold meetings at the organisation which he said has been free of charge, adding that the pandemic has caused a lot of hindrance to the association but assured that it will be at its new face once there is free movement in the state and outside the state.
The MD/CEO of ANPC, Chuka Nnabuife, who is the grand patron of the association welcomed the new elected officers and explained that they need not only support but good direction. “ I urge you to work and pray whenever you want to discharge your duties.”
Sir Chuka maintained that the biggest challenge in life is to be given a leadership position, describing it as a tough game.
He encouraged them to work hard in the mandate given to them as young leaders at the challenging time.
Steve Okpala Obi while addressing the press said that the existing government of the association at the national level decided to form a campus monitoring committee to assist the government in discharging their duties in various campuses and to ensure proper services.
“The committee is primarily to protect the interest and to see to the welfare of the students of Nigerian universities. As you can see we have people from different universities. Every state has their campus monitoring committee and their job is to ensure that the affairs of the schools are properly taken care of. That is why we have come to inaugurate the committee in Anambra State.
The chairman of the Campus Monitoring Committee, Okafor Victor Somtochukwu said that the basic aim of setting up the committee was to protect the interest and the way forward of students in every university, noting that it will be achieved using the Anambra State sector of empowering the youths to develop skill acquisition for the students.
