Abraham Adesanya Poly students elect leader


A Higher National Diploma (HND) II student, Ibrahim Lawal, has emerged the leader of the Students’ Union Government (SUG) of Abraham Adesanya Polytechnic (AAPOLY) in Ijebu-Igbo, Ogun State. Students went to the poll last week, to elect their leaders in an open ballot process described as peaceful, free and fair by observers.

The election, held at the Multipurpose Hall, recorded low turnout, because most students had travelled for the semester break.

Ibrahim polled 67 votes and was declared winner over his opponent, Adekunle Adebowale, who garnered 25 votes. Kayode Balogun, who was a strong contender for the president, was disqualified by the Students’ Affairs Directorate for an unknown reason. Students, who spoke with CAMPUSLIFE after the election, said the exercise was free and fair.

Others elected included the Vice President, Shola Ogundahunsi, General Secretary, Ayomide Erinle, Treasurer, Seun Okupe, Financial Secretary, Tolulope Odukoye, Social Director, Ibrahim Ganiyu, Public Relations Officer 1, Ijioma Caleb, and Sport Director, Samuel Okewunmi.
