The Student Union Government (SUG) of Imo State University, (IMSU) Owerri, has expressed total disaffection, disapproval and distanced itself from a purported award as life patron conferred on the former Chief of Staff to ex-governor Rochas Okorocha,. 

The leadership of the SUG, had in a release captioned, “vote of disapproval on the award conferred on Hon. Uche Nwosu, as a life patron of IMSU SUG,” stated that the purported and misleading conferment is illegal and fake. The SUG while washing its hands off the purported life patron award,  on Uche Nwosu, observed that it lacks general agreement, since the SUG President, Oguwuike Arinze (AKA) Aristotle, single handedly and without consent or consultation conferred the honour on Uche Nwosu.

 They stated as follows, in the release signed by Comrades Ebimnamaonye Kizito and Amanda Paul as secretary and Vice President of IMSU SUG, respectively;

1)      That the purported Award is fake and baseless and unconstitutional

It was as a result of this perceived infringement that other IMSU SUG members  who felt embittered and embarrassed by the presidents action resolved to challenge the decision of Oguike Arinze to hijack the conferment for a plate of porridge. 

2)      That the conferment of award is not one done without the agreement of both the SUG Executive Council, the SUG legislature and the judiciary.

3)      That the SUG president Comr. Aristotle conferred this Award personally and individually without respect to the laws guiding the SUG and due process in our country which is collective agreement and responsibility.

4)      That the alleged letters used in notifying the Awardee from the SUG President was falsified and signatures faked which amounts to abuse of powers and non respect for Directorates.

5)      That the alleged award is a failed mission and stands a nullity.

6)      That the awardee is not the patron of IMSU SUG.

7)      That majority members of the SUG executive, legislature and judiciary have frowned at such reckless and insensitive act of the President as ‘A failure indeed’.
