Under My Watch, NAAT ‘ll Be Radically Transformed – Nwokomma

By Appolos Christian

The newly elected President of the National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT) Comrade Ibeji Nwoko MA, has assured that the associa­tion will be radically transformed, revived and regenerated.

Comrade Nwokomma gave the assurance in his acceptance speech after he emerged as the third sub­stantive President of NAAT at the association’s delegates conference at University of Abuja.

“NAAT will be radically Trans­formed, Revived, Revigorated and Regenerated under my watch so as to rightfully occupy its enviable position among the other sister as­sociations in the University Com­munity.” His words.

Nwokomma added that he will run an inclusive, participatory, flex­ible and people oriented adminis­tration.

“The victory is not for comrade Ibeji Nwokomma, but for the en­tire membership of NAAT who willingly, conscientiously and tena­ciously stood their grounds against all political manipulations and ma­neuvering geared towards denying the people from having the ideal leadership of their choice.

“This degree of steadfastness and resolute demonstrated by the NAAT members in this 4th Nation­al Delegate Conference that led to my emergence as the 3rd Substan­tive National President of NAAT is yet to be seen in many quarters in Nigeria.

“Indeed you were able to change an old political equation that states that “Power is not Given but rather Taken” to a new one which now confirms that ‘Power can be Given by the People and not always Taken from the People.

“You people gave me power to serve you. I am going to serve you and not to be served by you. I am going to be a Leader and not a Ruler.

“ NAAT will be radically Trans­formed, Revived, Revigorated and Regenerated under my watch so as to rightfully occupy its enviable position among the other sister as­sociations in the University Com­munity.

“ It is going to be a collective ef­fort because my emergence was by your collective support and resil­ience as we will pursue reasonably progressive agenda that will make me leave NAAT in a better status than I met it.

“The dignified and respected NAAT that member aspire for is fi­nally here. I once again dedicate this victory to the people who gave me power to be their National Presi­dent.” He said.
