Our Executives

Our History

From inception, the University has enjoyed the leadership of 29 democratically-elected Union Executives and six Students Consultative Council-led Executives due to reasons of proscription and suspension of union activities at different times.

As of today, the University of Ilorin Students' Union stands out as first among equals as it blazes the trail for others to follow. The Union is very keen about entrepreneurship and innovation, the realities of the 21stcentury. For instance, the Union is the first in Nigeria to use online voting system (a variant of e-voting system) to elect its officials.

RE: NATIONAL PROTEST TO GET OUR CHILDREN BACK TO SCHOOL

MOBILIZATION FOR NLC NATIONAL PROTEST

It is so unfortunate that the inactions and lukewarmness of the Federal Government of Nigeria to yield to the yearnings and agitations of the varsity-based Unions has kept us out the four walls of our prestigious better-by-far University for more than five months.

Consequently, the leadership of the Union hereby strongly enjoin all Unilorites to participate in the National Protest organized by Nigeria Labour Congress against the lingering strikes which is scheduled to hold as follows:

Dates: Tuesday, 26th July 2022 and Wednesday, 27th July 2022
Take-off Points: NLC State Secretariats and Labour House Abuja

Unilorites in Ilorin should join the protest at the Labour House, Lajonrin Road, Behind Kwara State Ministry of Women Affairs, Offa Road, Ilorin, Kwara State by 7:00am while others should join in their respective state capitals.

As we are all tired and frustrated by the ugly situation, it is imperative that we go out in our numbers to gallantly participate in the protest as a means to advocate for quality education.

Victoria Ascerta!
