WSSU resolves to strife for glorious generation
Dimapur, January 20
The 36th general conference of Western Sumi Students’ Union (WSSU) concluded at Khekiho village on a positive note as hundreds of students who attended the conference resoundingly resolved to strife for “a glorious generation” – the theme of the conference, at the valedictory session on January 19 evening. Gracing the concluding session as valedictory guest, Parliamentary Secretary for Irrigation & Flood Control, Y Vikheho Swu encouraged the students to continue to uphold the union and its value to bring young people together in unity and providing platform to share experiences and knowledge.
Vikheho said the society especially the student community should have a strong social support system to upbring one another in whatever way possible. He advised that competing in numbers with wrong motive and communication gap would lead to division and ism which ultimately results in psychological warfare and other worsening conflict.
He was of the view that student unions can play a pivotal role in solving various social problems by way of conducting varieties of workshops and seminars to educate the people.
Pointing out that the building of a strong nation or a society depends on education, Vikheho said the importance of education cannot be compared with anything adding nothing is more important than education in students’ life. He therefore urged the students to seek education that comes along with wisdom. He also inaugurated the website of the union.
Greeting the students, Zheshito Swu, vice president of Western Sumi Hoho, reminded students that there was no greater weapon than to be armed with education. He also urged students’ community to be flag bearers in fostering brotherhood among Naga people.
Toni Aye, cultural secretary of WSSU, chaired the concluding session while Mughato N Awomi, president of WSSU, proposed vote of thanks for the success of the conference.
