Re – Management of Unilorin plans to manipulate the forthcoming Student Union Elections.
ILORIN EMIRATE STUDENTS UNION CONDEMNED THE ACT OF SOILING PERSONALITIES
A broadcast has been circulating in recent time stating how Management of the University is planning to manipulate the forthcoming Students Union elections. It is no longer new that, in Unilorin Students Union elections that, tagging a popular candidate as the anointing candidate of the management has always been attempts to soil the personality of the candidate by creating fear in the minds of his supporters as to whether he will not betray the students and be loyal to the management .
However, it is worth note that, politics is a game of number and interest, and it is high time we stop playing politics of propaganda and strategize on winning elections credibly . The Students Union elections is to be conducted by an independent body of students who has the constitutional duties of conducting free, fair and credible elections. The students affairs Unit is only saddled with a supervisory role one of which is to confirm if all aspirants are academically qualified and have not been found wanting of any disciplinary action that is as uncommon as not projecting him/herself as a good ambassador of his/ her faculty talk less of the University .
Anybody can write and Allege but he who has no skeleton in his/her cupboard should not have any fear of any person affecting their candidacy in the forthcoming elections.
Comrade Ishowo was alleged to have been planning with the Sub Dean of Student Affairs for his consistent visit to the unit which preceded the election. Please, when has students Union elections affected people’s free movement?? His visit to the unit has nothing to do with the Union elections. He said. It’s better advised that all aspirants campaign and pray well for the best candidate to emerge.
Some other bcs said , Dr. Alex of Faculty of Education is championing the campaign for the anointing candidate of the Unilorin Christian Union(UCU) SOCRATES who has been said to be using the Faculty of Education lecturers who are Christians to threaten the students of the Faculty that, they must vote for soctrates or they fail them. Why must people just say or do things that can distabilise the Unity we enjoy in the University.
In conclusion, aspirants should warn their supporters to stop campaigns that soil people’s personalities and concentrate on how well they can convince the electorates.
God bless the Unilorin Students Union.
God bless Kwara State
God bless Nigeria
