The President-elect of the FUNAAB Student Union, Comrade Olajumoke Olawale, has attributed his victory at the polls to the grace of Almighty God, as he promised to work closely with the University Management, to better the lot of his fellow students. According to Olawale: “People thought I won the election by the virtue of fame or because I had once contested. No, this is far from it. With what happened and what I saw myself, I know it is the Almighty God that placed me there. So, anything I am going to do must be things that will glorify God”, he said.

Comrade Olajumoke, who assured of a robust and cordial relationship between Management and the students, noted that appropriate channels of communication would be deployed to ensure that harmonious and peaceful co-existence reigned on campus during his tenure. While calling for a pragmatic and systematic approach to matters that concern students, the 400-level Animal Physiology student stated that the FUNAABSU would fully support the Management to become a world-class institution where its graduates can compete favourably with others across the globe.

The President-elect appealed to the newly-elected Legislative and Judicial arms of FUNAABSU to cooperate with the Executive, to achieve the vision of ensuring that every student counts, by adopting participatory government. He commended the process that brought him into office, saying the Electronic Voting System saved time, was stress-free and minimised cost. He promised to work with students with good ideas that could uplift FUNAABSU. He also advised young people to stay focused and live their dreams because “if there is any good thing you desire, continue and pursue it, if you know it is going to give you joy”, he stated.

Comrade Olajumoke Olawale is to takes over from Kehinde Awosanya A.k.a P.kenny, a final year student of the department of Water Resources Management and Agrometeorology(Hydrology Option), whose tenure is just ending.
