NASS OAU: Election Petition Tribunal Revalidates ATOM As President-elect

The Departmental Representative Council (DRC) of the Nigerian Association of Science Students (NASS), Obafemi Awolowo University has revalidated Olasunkanmi Elisha Olaoye a.k.a Atom as the genuinely elected president of the Association having polled the highest number of votes.

The Faculty of Science students' Association conducted her poll a fortnight ago where Olasukanmi Elisha a.k.a Atom was eventually announced winner having polled slightly higher votes against what was recorded by Ogunyonye John and Akoledowo Eniola a.k.a DaCaptain his co-aspirants.

One of the contestants, who is also the runner up, John obviously not satisfied with the election result last week petitioned the Electoral Commission over the number of void votes recorded for him and requested that the votes be recounted.

On conveying the parliamentary sitting, the honourables who were aggrieved over the unconstitutional step taken by John to seek for clarity on the election expressed their disapproval. John had earlier written to the Dean of the Faculty requesting for his intervention in the matter. Eventually, majority of the honourables following a voting process decided that the votes be recounted.

Following the recount, the integrity of the Odu Oluwafemi Daniel-led Electoral Commission was further strengthened as the petitioner still lost the election about same margin with what was earlier announced. The Tribunal however upheld the initial declaration of the Electoral Commission thereby revalidating Atom as the dully elected president of NASS.

Reacting to the development, the petitioner expressed satisfaction as he declared contentment with the result. In his own reaction, the President-elect, Atom thanked everyone and said he is glad this came up which he sees as a confirmation of the mandate given him by the members of the Association.

The new executives are expected to be sworn-in by the Speaker of the Departmental Representative Council (DRC) after he must have been sworn-in by the Dean come next semester.
