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:

THE REBRANDING THE VALUE SYSTEM ADMINISTRATION COMMENCES THE RENOVATION OF THE STUDENT UNION BUILDING AFTER 13 YEARS

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.

HEARTFELT CONDOLENCE; THE NEED FOR A 'UNILORIN EMERGENCY RESPONSE CENTER' OFF CAMPUS

It is with a heavy heart that we extend our hands of condolence to the family, relatives, and friends of AbdulWahab, who was a 400l student of science education and a final year student of the University of Ilorin before he gave up the ghost in the early hours of Monday.

We pray that the Almighty God, who created us on this earth and will eventually take us out of it, grant the deceased eternal Paradise and May He also grant the family the fortitude to bear the loss. This is indeed a great loss to the Student Union, the University community, and the nation at large because one of the future stars just departed.

Esteemed Unilorites, we are aware of the circumstances surrounding the death and our investigations revealed that the deceased died before arriving at the school clinic. Also, from the account given by the student who was challenged on dress code matter, the questions on his mode of dressing did not in anyway disturb the medical attention offered to the victim. He confirmed that the deceased was being attended to inside in clinic, while he was questioned outside by the Director, who at the point was unaware of any affiliation between the deceased and the accused. In fact, the Student Union President is a friend of the deceased and the challenged person and he was still with them a night before the incident.

We have requested that a Unilorin emergency response center be provided off campus where emergency cases can be addressed to increase the chances of patients survival. We also appealed to the Director of Health services to improve the quality of service and attention given to emergency cases as disturbing concerns have been reported repeatedly to the Union.

Dearest colleagues, we pray for the deceased and the union remains committed to serving her members in the best way possible.

RIP Abdulwahab, we go see again!
