Just a few weeks after the inauguration of new executives, the Students’ Union President of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko, Comrade Eyinla Temitope known as BOUBOW has ascertained that his administration is working tirelessly to see that he agitated for the interest of the students.
BOUBOW said this in an interview with newsmen at his Student Union Building office.
According to him, “we are working day and night to ensure the welfares of the students and to agitate for their interest”.
He also made it known that his administration has been able to extend the closure of the school portal twice.
BOUBOW explained that the extension was not easy to get as he had to make contact with the Vice Chancellor as well as the Pro-Chancellor.
“We have been able to extend the closure date of school portal twice though this is not easy; I have to speak with some personalities in the varsity. People like the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Vice-Chancellor and the Pro-Chancellor to make sure it is extended. We look for strategies to convince them to see the reason why it should be extended,” BOUBOW said.
Another achievement of his administration he mentioned was the provision of conducive football viewing centre at the University’s Relaxation Center with the cooperation of Indomie Noodles Company.
While adding, BOUBOW spoke on the extension of the duration of electricity supply which his administration is striving to achieve from the hour 9 am to 3 pm and in the evening 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm even as the school complains of the shortage of fuel.
“We want the duration of electricity supply to be extended to a time that will satisfy the students but the school complained of the shortage of fuel.”
Pressing further with his achievements, BOUBOW who is the third elected President on the AAUASU’s E-voting platform said his administration has been able to open the new relaxation centre and also the review of SIWES results.
Speaking on the challenges of his administration, BOUBOW highlighted the shortage of fund as an issue.
The Owo-born comrade revealed that his administration inherited 60,000 from the last Ijanusi Olawale ‘Optimum’ led administration thereby making funds a major challenge.
“The administration has been running on the shortage of fund, we only met 60,000 naira in the SUG account operated by the past administration”.
He noted further that “The task has not been easy, late-night outside to attend to some issues, balancing academic and political post. God has been helping so far”.
He promised the students more infrastructures on campus.
