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.

100 DAYS AT HOME: WE ARE TIRED

It is no longer a news that today marks a 100-day that we have been at home due to the lingering ASUU strike.

Recall that few weeks ago, we organized a peaceful protest in front of the University gate where we made our positions known to the Federal Government and the respective ministers hoping that the industrial action is sorted and we can continue our academics uninterrupted.

Though shortly after that time, we saw the meeting facilitated and chaired by the Chief of staff to the President, Professor Ibrahim Gambari but no tangible result till this moment.

As the lingering strike enters 100 days today, we want to appeal to the Federal Government, concerned ministries, critical stakeholders to immediately engage ASUU among other Unions so that the demands can be sorted out finally because our patience at home is running out.

We also want to publicly advise our colleagues to use this period to obtain their voters' cards to elect credible office holders as election looms.

We remain steadfast in our demands to reopen the schools as we will continue to engage necessary stakeholders on the next steps to take if the dispute is not resolved sooner than expected.
