The crisis rocking the National Association of Cross River State Students World Wide, NACRISS WW continues to deepen with the impeachment of the Union’s Senate President, Francis Onun Obono.
Two third majority of the parliamentarians who voted Senator Onun Francis Obono out of office accused him of “opening the windows of ‘NACRISS WW’ Senate for ventilation of lobby and conspiracy, unilaterally signing the suspension of the Vice President, Comrade Manyo Juliet, impersonating the scribe of Senate, Sen. Lazarus Atsu’s signature, violating section 26, Sub Section 3 of the NACRISS WW Constitution” amongst others.
In a release signed by 18 of the 24 NACRISS WW Senators including principal officers, the parliamentarians also alleged that their former president “Collected a thirthy thousand Naira donation in Ugep as well as five thousand Naira donated to the union in support of their solidarity movement by the Obol Lopon 1 of Ugep without rendering account.
“Hence, according to section 32 sub 4 of the Union’s Constitution, we the concern Senators duly sign and move a concrete and valid motion that having noticed the misconduct of the Senate President Francis Onun Obono, he should cease to be the Senate President of NACRISS WW’. On that note, the doctrine of necessity therefore applies that the Deputy Speaker, Senator Okanga Ogbu Okpan takes charge of the Senate.”
When CrossRiverWatch contacted Senator Francis Onun Obono he said: “All their claims and allegations are not true, I am still the Senate President.”
