Ogun Varsity Students Lament Management Interference In Unio

Tai Solarin University of Education students have accused the management of undue interference and manipulation of the electronic voting process of the Students’ Union election.

Expressing their dismay on Tuesday, the students of the institution lamented that for over two sessions, the dignity of the Students Union has been handicapped through irregularities from election outcome/ results.

They maintained that while Students’ Union election has been taken over by the management through electronic voting championed by the ICT team, the outcome have always been manipulated.

Speaking to some students, an anonymous source stated that even at the just concluded college election the numbers of accredited voters did not correspond with the total of votes hence the worry on the forthcoming SUG election.

“Just of recent, last week Thursday precisely, colleges election was conducted but it’s disheartening that the outcome of the election was evidently manipulative where the ICT team had presented the outcome of the election of which numbers of accredited voters did not correspond with the totality of votes. 

“After that, questions were raised to this effect but the ICT team up till this moment couldn’t give a justification to her manipulative intentions.

“The SUG election is slated for tomorrow, and we are concerned because of the campus’s current climate of fear over another management implemented manipulation."

Emmanuel Akinjetan, a candidate for the post of the Union president noted that petitions have been granted and submitted to the appropriate quarters but that nothing has been done.

Some students also frowned at the management’s new policy of disqualifying aspirants who are yet to pay their tuition fees.

Sources revealed that the new initiative is to aid the manipulation of the election as it was never part of the requirement .

“This was never a part of the process, It has never been part of the requirements and infact I contested two years ago.

"So I experienced one of the processes," the source revealed.

Efforts to reach the school management proved abortive as of the time of filling this report.
