Senate President of the University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN), Ifeanyichukwu Nnamani, has stated his own side of the story following his purported impeachment over alleged misappropriation of students union funds.
According to acting Senate President Ogbuh Chinazam Ameh, Nnamani was sacked for alleged misappropriation of N3, 238, 500. 00 and disregard for the Student Union Government (SUG) constitution.
But speaking on Lion FM Nsukka, Nnamani said he was impeached for declining to approve N65, 553,000.00 for the construction of 150 relaxation outdoor seats.
He said he took the stand because there were more pressing demands such as renovation of toilets, leaking roofs and drainage and installation of solar panels to boost power supply.
“I will protect the welfare of Nigerian students and will never support impunity and corruption in the SUG even though my office is threatened,” he said, adding: “I refused to give my consent until due process is followed.”
He dared his accusers to produce a copy of alleged transactions showing he misappropriated N3, 238, 500. 00. He said he does not authorise withdrawal from the union’s account.
According to him, that is the purview of the financial secretary, thereby rendering the accusations false.
