The Senate President of Students Union Government (SUG) of Chukwuemeka Odimegwu Ojukwu University (COOU), Oraekwe Emmanuel, has reacted to the alleged impeachment of the SUG President, Comrade Gideon Arinzechukwu and other SUG principal officers.
Oraekwe, in a statement made available to the public on Tuesday, said that he was not a party to the alleged impeachment of SUG President and SUG Deputy Senate President, Onuchukwu Charles.
He alleged that the letter in circulation concerning the impeachment of the principal officers of SUG was forged, adding that such action was criminal act.
Oraekwe urged the students to ignore all impeachment publications, saying that there has not been an official sitting of the SUG Senate and as such no legal impeachment has been embarked by the SUG Senate.
He said, “Kindly be notified that I, Sen. Oraekwe Emmanuel, was never a party to the impeachment declaration channeled towards Comr. Gideon Arinzechukwu (SUG President) and Sen. Onuchukwu Charles(SUG Deputy Senate President).
“My notice was recently brought to a letter that was in circulation concerning the impeachment of the SUG principal officers with a forged signature, letter headed paper with my name also attached.
“Such actions are criminal in nature and are punishable by the law pertaining to forgery and impersonation.
“Most importantly, i was also notified about a prior publication concerning the impeachment of the Senate President (Sen. Oraekwe Emmanuel) and the suspension of the SUG Governor (Comr. Okemadu Kizito) by the SUG House of Senate.
“Kindly note that the above is totally untrue, fallacious, laughable as the Senate has had no official sitting and thereby has not impeached or suspended any principal officer.
“Lately, I was informed that some disgruntled senators with malicious intentions held a meeting without any notice/approval despite the warning not to do so by the authorities.
“They made further independent errors by making a defamatory publication regarding the impeachment and suspension of principal officers causing confusion and chaos amongst personalities concerned.
“However, the action is baseless, unconstitutional and to the full level of it’s inconsistency NULL AND VOID.
“Be rest assured of my un-compromised focus and commitment towards the course of rendering quality representation in line with my constitutional obligations of serving great eagles and falcons of COOU diligently.”
