The congress of students that was held at the level of Afrika Amphi Theatre, Obafemi Awolowo University yesterday did not end without a show of emotional outburst by congressmen against the honourables representing them at the Students’ Union parliament.
At about 40minutes behind the scheduled time, the Congress commenced with the singing of Great Ife anthem led by the suspended Secretary General of the Students’ Union, Shittu Olatayo a.k.a SI Unit. A very quick observation by a congressman challenged the functionality of the suspended Secretary General in such gathering. This went a long way to effect the unanimous position earlier taken by the SU Parliament some days ago as SI Unit had no option than to succumb to the will of the Congress. He stepped aside to join the congressmen seated.
This utterance seemed not to have gone well with the seated parliamentarians as they noised in protest even as the congressmen busted into serious laughter. The Speaker of the SU eventually took to the podium to show dissatisfaction with the utterance. “I will not allow anyone disregard the parliament” “I will not also want our emotion to cloud our arguments” The Speaker submitted. He further laid proper clarification on the steps involved in the constitution amendment which was eventually applauded by the Congress.
In a similar tone, one Oke Olanrewaju from the Faculty of Social Sciences suggested that congressmen should always go straight to issues and stop attacking personalities for the sake of unity.
