“As a serious and revolutionary organisation, we are under obligation to respond to the ridiculous and embarrassing statement for the unsuspecting members of the public not to consider that as opinion of the students in the most ideological zone”

” We find it expedient to alert the members of the public about the political jobbers claiming to be representing the students, specifically the said John Alao is not the Deputy Cordinator of the zone and not in any way representing the zone. Whatever opinion he might expressed in respect of the Tribunal Judgement remains his personal view and political bias”.
