By Adejumo Kabir
Nigerian Universities Education Students Association (NUESA), Obafemi Awplowo University Chapter last Friday conducted the faculty election after several failed attempts.
Efforts of the association to hold the election in the past were unsuccessful because of the inability of the department under the faculty leadership to reach consensus as regard the constitution.
The recent election conducted has Fatoyinbo Gafar as the President of the Association with 401 votes.
Gafar who spoke with IFE CITY NEWS expressed his gratitude to the immediate past Dean of the Faculty, Professor P. O. Jegede for his pro democratic gesture and the current Dean Professor J. B. Popoola for rescuing and sustaining the integrity of the associations.
During the inauguration of the new executives, Gafar thanked the association members for their patience in the last democratic struggle and encouraged them to support the administration to attain greatness.
Gafar said “the wrong of yesteryears must be right. NUESA has come to stay and should be allowed. The resurrection of NUESA from its perennial slumber is a pointer to the fact that we have all made history and that gesture should be sustained.”
“Our administration shall ensure that the academic excellence, student welfarism which formed cardinal basis of our electoral promises are not mere rhetoric’s but reality”. He said.
