DEMOCRACY DAY CELEBRATION: OUR FUTURE IS AT STAKE

We join all other patriotic citizens of this country to celebrate another milestone in our struggle as a country to attain justice through unity. Today, June 12, 2019, marks another year that the Giant of Africa is holding on to the hopes and promises of democracy. However, true democracy can only be enjoyed in a country with educated and skilled youths, a country where there is a quality educational system that promotes the training and empowerment of her youths within a controlled and fixed period of time. Is Nigeria still that country?

The unending and repeatedly looping cycles of the ASUU and the FG disagreements have made a 'Jumong' out of this country's educational system and has forced students, who are supposed to be getting ready to build the country, into viewers of the tragic seasonal movies been acted by the Federal Government and ASUU. The actions and inactions of these parties that are supposed to be working hand in hand to ensure that the educational sector of the country becomes a pride of the continent is putting the future of this country at stake, and WE CAN NO LONGER FOLD OUR HANDS AND WATCH THESE PEOPLE THAT BENEFITED FROM A WELL-STRUCTURED SCHOOL SYSTEM TO PLUNGE THE FUTURE OF THE COUNTRY INTO THE MUD!

It is on this note that we, Aloha forces of the University of Ilorin, merges our voices with other Nigerian students in the country to call on the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to consider the labors of our past heroes, who laid the foundation of democracy in this country, and make progressive reconciliations that will effect the return of students back to school. We pray to the various individuals involved in the negotiations to be considerate and Godfearing, because OUR FUTURE IS AT STAKE!

We move✊

The Nigerian Police Force has promised to increase their surveillance and activities in and around students residential areas to ensure the safety of their properties during and after the COVID19 lockdown.

We hereby call on all students to ensure that they contact their house agents and landlords to discuss the safety of their properties in their hostels during this COVID19 pandemic.

REBRANDING THE VALUE SYSTEM; 6 MONTHS IN OFFICE
(Kindly fill the evaluation form via the link below)

The rebranding the value system administration was inaugurated into office on August 16th 2019, which makes it 6 months in office today. Little by little, the one year deal we signed with the students of the university of Ilorin is half spent, and we have so many things to show for it.

Ever since the inception of office, this administration has never for once joked with the welfare and well-being of our members and has been doing everything within its power to advance the welfare of students on campus.

We inherited the transportation headache, just like other past administrations, but we had seen the end of the Korope dynasty a long time ago and we have gone far and wide to toast big investors to come ease the affairs of our students. The 'red buses' is testament to our efforts and we assure you that by the time other investors yield to our call, our park will wear a new look!

Our role in ensuring a stable water and electricity supply on campus cannot be overemphasized, as we keep a cordial relationship with the Works Department of the University to ensure that we are fully aware of everything surrounding the well-being of students on campus.

We have also not failed to deliver in the social aspect of our promises. Unilorin Idol, Twilight, and the recent Valentine Show tagged HeartClicks, are few of the social events that we have been directly or indirectly organized on campus this semester alone. We have also registered every Friday night as a Cinema Time in the hearts of our esteemed viewers because our SU Ultra Cinema is always on par!

The free viewing center in the SUB Common room was also facilitated to cheer the football lovers on campus. We don't plan to stop giving you the best, in fact, we just procured a new projector and sound system to improve on our service delivery; so watch our for more amazing shows at our newly renovated Student Union Building!

This administration has also not left any stone unturned in the sport life on campus. The beautiful Unilorin League is still ongoing, with superb developments and additional online presence. We have also witnessed the winning of the Third Place of the Higher Institution Football League and the also crowned Champion in the JAMB Institution Cup last year.

The Passion-led administration has also organized beautiful programs like the SU Academic Workshop, Walk-Fit, Trade Fair, Ability in Disability etc that has brought glory to the school and also benefited our members in one way or the other. On that same pedestrian, this administration has also facilitated, with the support of the Student Affairs Unit, the renovation of the Student Union Building after 13 years!

We were able to achieve all the aforementioned and many more within 6-months because of your love and support which the administration has been enjoying right from Day 1 in office.

However, we are just half way into the administration and there's still more to be achieved; more to be rebranding to be done in our value system. This is why we have created an evaluation to help us communicate with our members and hear your comments about the past 6 months. We need also need your advice and words of admonishment, so we added a feedback mechanism to listen to you. So kindly fill the google form with utmost honesty and sincerity.

We remain committed to our mission of not only investing in our members substantially, but also uniting with you; because only in togetherness can we rebrand the value system!

Please fill the evaluation form:

We are pleased to inform the general public that the Passion-led 2019/2020 administration of the Student Union has commenced the "rebranding" of the Student Union Building today, February 1st, 2020.

Ever since the inception of this administration, we have observed that the SUB also known as "Kaduna Nzeogwu Building" is in need of urgent renovation and we have committed efforts into effect a total facelift of the building.

The SUB should be a home-away-from-home for all Unilorin students and at such should be equipped with social amenities such as restrooms, clean water, and open Internet access (Free WiFi), to make the building comfortable for our members. The ongoing renovation will take care of the aforementioned, upgrading the standards of the prestigious University of Ilorin Student Union Building.

Also, a viewing and gaming center that shows all major football matches in the world and other sports for free was facilitated by the present leadership of the Union, in addition to the existing famous Beans and Bread, Sharwama Outlet, and other shops, all in an effort to provide quality relaxation time for all students of the better by far institution.

It is worthy to mention that the last time a major renovation was done in the building was in 2007, and the rebranding the value system administration is truly rebranding our base after 13 years. It is our hope that when our members come for events at the SUB, like the popular Friday Movie Nights, they are welcomed to a sweet and lovely Student Union Building.

We urge all students to always watch-out and support the Student Union as we continue on our mission to rebrand the value system.
