*says they won’t be deterred by intimidation
No amount of intimidation shall prevent CEDRA from advocating for good governance in Nigeria at the states and federal level especially in Kaduna State, while calling for students of closed down higherinstitutions in Southern Kaduna to be compensated.
CEDRA expressed this in a statement signed by Chairman of its board, Dr. John Danfulani,with a copy made available to New Nigerian.
“CEDRA’s quest/advocacy for good governance shall march on. No amount of unabashed terror and persecution by the Chief Tenant of Sir Kashim Ibrahim House Kaduna shall make CEDRA turn tail run.
“CEDRA shall continue to use all avenues permitted by our 1999 constitution(as amended),global and regional protocols to hold power accountable in Kaduna State and Nigeria at large,”it stated.
According to the statement, CEDRA said that it was delightedwith unconfirmed reports that its efforts are yeilding results as one of the institutions in Southern Kaduna would soon be reopened, but added that it was not yet Uhuru.
“Report reaching CEDRA this afternoon suggests; the maximum ruler of Kaduna State and his gang of human rights undertakers have fixed a new date for resumption of academic activities in Kafanchan campus of KASU. However,they are very quiet about resumption date(s) of CEO and CON.
“CEDRA will soldier-on with its court case against Kaduna State Governor/Government because it’s our desire to know who failed on his duty (Provision of security) which he/they premised their cutting-off of acedamic activities for months, now,” it added.
CEDRA further added that it was also interested in knowing whether students that this action affected have some form of compensations or not.
“Because student’s time and resouces was affected by sadistic closure,” it emphasized.
