ON ELECTION BREAK

Due to the electioneering activities slated for Saturday 16th of February, 2019, the School Management has declared Friday and Monday free of academic activities in order to allow students exercise their franchise as good citizens of the country.

Those who would be traveling to cast their votes have tomorrow Friday to embark on journeys to their different destinations, while those who would be staying put are advised to stay calm in their hostels before, during and after the polls.

Students who have started their exams are expected to have returned to school latest Monday, as academic activities will commenced on Tuesday. Consequently, the new dates for the exams earlier slated for Monday will be communicated.

We hereby appeal to our esteemed members to stay calm, avoid violence and violation of electoral rules and most importantly, to remain the good ambassadors of peace, unity and harmony that Unilorites have always been known for.

EXAMINATION AND GENERAL ELECTION

It is no longer news that harmattan semester examinations for 300-500level students of the University begins on Monday 11th February as contained in the final examinations timetable.

Since the release of the timetable, we have received several complaints from various students who raised concerns over the structure of the timetable in relation with the general elections schedule. For some, their concern is about safety of students especially those who reside outside the campus and for some others, the concern is about the opportunity to travel outside the state to exercise their rights to perform one of the most important civic duties i.e. voting.

We consider the two issues as of utmost importance. Our administration places much priority on safety of lives and properties of our colleagues both within and outside the campus and we have never been shaken in taking necessary measures to ensure this.

In the past days, officials of the Union alongside the league of Faculty presidents have been in talks with relevant student management authority in the University to consider possible changes in the timetable that can allow students who wish to travel in order to either vote and/or be with their families for safety purposes. Up till now, there has been no change by the University on the timetable.

The University’s interest stems from the need to ensure the stability of our calendar to allow our final year students meet the deadlines for their next activities (NYSC and Nigerian Law School).

We can recall that in January, the Student Union was successful in moving the Continuous Assessment (C.A) Test for returning students from 7th January to 14th January and that ultimately affected the calendar. Another move to extend the calendar may go a long way in altering the calendar and prevent us from meeting the deadlines.

It may therefore be out of place for the University to out rightly declare an holiday for students in this electoral period; we however pleaded for flexibility in the timetable to give students the grace to participate in the elections without fear of it affecting their examinations.

The news going around social media platforms that the Federal Government has declared break for University students for the election is unsubstantiated and incorrect as upon our checks, the University has not received any official memo/circular to that effect.

We have also received with great shock, the rumour going around that the University management is of the opinion that most students are underage and won’t be able to vote. This is very untrue, and is another step of detractors in soiling the integrity of the University.

The University has shown great interest in promoting good citizenship and allowing students to vote. It is the reason why we have several polling units on campus, where thousands of students have registered as their voting centres.

Albeit we hope for free and fair elections, we are taking precautionary steps and next week, we shall write officially to necessary authorities in the stat to demand for special protection for all our colleagues residing outside campus, in case violence erupts before, during and after the elections.

We intend to follow up the course of our discussion with the University and we shall communicate with students, in case we get a slight change.

We implore you all to continue preparing for the examinations and we wish everyone best of luck.

EXAM DATE REMAINS UNCHANGED

The Student Union wishes to dissociate self from the questionable report going viral on social media platforms that the school management has rescheduled exams for 6th of February, 2019 due to election activities.

We wish to state categorically that the said message lacked credibility and authenticity, as exams for 300L, 400L and 500L students would be starting by Monday 11th of February, 2019.

We also use this avenue to inform the general students populace to make use of the link on our press releases in confirming the authenticity of any messages from the Union.

We however implore students to disregard any contrary information about the change of date and prepare selves well for the exams.

SCHOOL FEES PAYMENT EXTENDED FOR 7DAYS FOR FRESHERS, STALITES

The Student Union is pleased to keep its distinguished members abreast of the new development concerning the payment of school fees and other related registrations, as the school management has set a new deadline for seven days.

Following series of complaints from students who have one difficulty or the other in meeting up with initial deadlines, we decided to invest our blood and sweat in finding a lasting panacea to the problems, as we have earlier promised to always be responsible and responsive to the clarion calls of our constituents.

For some days and nights, we had series of meetings with concerned authorities, begging for extension of deadline after citing instances of different circumstances which have deprived some students the ability to fulfill their financial obligations in time.

However, we implore concerned students to embrace this golden opportunity with utmost respect by ensuring that they do everything possible to make the payment within the stipulated days and avoid deliberately taking further risk, as we are told that subsequent extension won't be entertained, regardless of circumstance(s) attached.

This is a doubtless evidence and sincere assurance that we will never renege on our pledges to prioritise our students' ecstasies in the areas of academic, welfare, social security etc.

As she walks the stage of her golden age, we celebrate ORIANA for her excellent handling of the Sports Department in the Union, outstanding maintenance and management of sporting facilities and proffering solutions to the myriad of problems faced in the course of her remarkable service.

Sincere her emergence as the first female Sports Secretary in the University, she has consistently demonstrated exceptional capacity, unwavering patriotism and abiding faith in the unity, peace and progress of the University both in words and in action.

ORIANA is an embodiment of finesse, a fusion of intellectual fecundity and leadership competence, selfless stewardship, brave defender of sport and a symbol of courage.
