NUASA Parliament Repeals President's Impeachment For "Peace And Unity"

Following several breaking headlines from the Nigerian Universities Accounting Students Association on the recent impeachment of it's current President over an alleged five thousand naira (N5,000) fraud, the Accounting Students Representative Council (ASRC) has repealed its decision on the impeachment of the President.

This was made known at a Press Conference organised by the Association on Friday, 20th January 2016 at the ICAN Lecture theatre. The conference which was moderated by a staff adviser of the Association, Mr Adebayo Quadri Lawan, featured members of the Representative and Executive Council signing the Repeal and Acknowledgement letters respectively.

According to the Staff Adviser, the President of the Association had not committed fraud as he was in charge of granting access to the Association's account. He also appreciated the interference from several lecturers and Alumni on the matter.

However, when posed the question of what caused the repeal of their earlier decision, the leadership of the House only responded that their decision was made to allow for the peace and unity of the Association. Even though there were speculations, judging from the body language of some Honourables, that the decision might not have been totally from the house, the Deputy Speaker of the house only continued to reiterate the need for the decision in ensuring the progress of the Association. And whilst the reinstated President, Mr John Sunday, once again dismissed claims of fraud from his end, the question the majority are asking continues to remain; "Is Justice the price of Peace and Unity?"
