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.

ROBBERY ATTACKS ON STUDENTS IN TANKE

We have received the disturbing reports of incessant robbery and violent attacks on our colleagues in Oko Oba and Oke Odo axis of Tanke. The perpetrators have successfully carried out their operations owing to the inadequate security apparatus in these areas. The increasing rate of these incidents is highly condemnable and totally unacceptable.

Proactively, the administration has made efforts to work with the security operatives and hostel owners via series of engagements to ensure security is beefed up in all student areas to secure lives and properties of our colleagues. However, it seems efforts are failing as we now record stories of attack on each day.

Consequently, we are charging the Kwara State Government, Kwara State Police Command, Tanke association of hostel owners and other stakeholders to take proactive and necessary steps in averting future attacks and make Tanke a safe place for us - Unilorites. This should however be done with impelling alacrity as we are running out of patience as a Union.

Nevertheless, we encourage our colleagues in the affected areas to remain calm and be security-conscious. Information regarding any strange movements or happenings should be reported to the Union and security operatives as soon as possible.

We pacify all victims of attacks and pray that almighty God grant them speedy recoveries. Accept the assurance of our commitment to remain people focused in the struggle to attain justice.
