Central Senatorial Students Assembly of Cross River State Worldwide (CENSA-WW) have initiated moves to ensure that the politics in the state is devoid of violence, thuggery and manipulation ahead of the 2019 General Elections.
The group is made up of non partisan students association with interest in the welfare of students of the Cross River Central Senatorial district, ideally meant to serve as the vanguard (Union Super Market) students body in Cross River State as well.
With no mission to contest for elections in the 2019 General Elections, CENSA-WW is basically meant to create a friendly atmosphere for the electorates so that they would use their Permanent Voters Card (PVC) to select their leaders wisely.
In a press release issued by the Chief press secretary to the CENSA-WW Chief, Comr. Usani Usani and HR Chief Obeten Emmanuel, they appealed to the People in Cross River State to vote with their conscience.
“This is the Apex students body that superceeds all Union activities in Central and it comprises of students from the sixty six (66) Council wards and eight hundred and fifty (850) polling units in Central Senatorial district of Cross River State, Worldwide.
“The association is functioning as an academic body aimed at creating awareness on the need to follow the right path academically and socially, with the view of creating a new political conciousness on the part of our people.
“CENSA is a non partisan students association with interest in the welfare of students of the Cross River Central Senatorial district. CENSA is the vanguard (Union Super Market) students body in Cross River State.
“As earlier said, the association is without particular interest in the coming election. However, the association and government are not mutually exclusive. Government does not exist in a vacuum. We ought to be interested in who governs us and should show that as much as we can. Meanwhile, CENSA would not be in support of thuggery, violence nor any other malpractice in the quest for political ascension.
“Nobody. I repeat, Nobody. CENSA would trace antecedents to clue up on the aspirants and take a position in due cause. The organisation has patrons and matrons and have been existing on the sheer benevolence of well-meaning and supportive Central Fathers.
“For CENSA, we respect these two blocks and the interest they present. In our internal election, we zone the leadership between the two divides and follow it up to the later. However, other factors play in the mainstream politics, e.g National and State appointments, governorship seat, etc. CENSA is absolutely indifferent on the debate. What we want is the best.
“Our greatest fear is political desperation and by extension, hijacking the elections and preventing the votes of the masses from counting. We just pray things would not go that way.
“CENSSA needs educational support for her student members in Primary, Secondary and tertiary institutions. Facilitating a bursary is the greatest wish of CENSSA, Opportunities for students to acquire Entrepreneur training, A sound Bus for the Unions Mobility, vocational training, et al would be an add-on to the expectation.
“Finally, the CENSA chief in reaction to the question smiled and said; Like I mentioned earlier, CENSA is an assembly unlike others that called themselves National Association. We assemble, make decisions then the Northern and Southern Cross River State Students quie behind the decision…that is why we are the Unions’ Super Market and Vanguard students body in Cross River State.
