The proposed election of the Faculty of Arts Students Association was again postponed for Thursday, 21st November 2019 was once again postponed indefinitely.
The elections commenced at AUD 2 on the 21st of November 2019 with students of the Faculty of Arts ready to exercise their rights and agents stylishly donning the tags of their candidates.
Things, however, began to fall apart when the election commission abruptly stopped the voting procedures. According to an eyewitness, the turmoil started as a result of the fact there were irregularities as regards the number of accredited voters. The electoral chairman Hon. Havard, unanimously closed the curtain on the election process.
On the account of another eyewitness, an anonymous department was responsible for the brow-raising electoral practice. According to the staff adviser Dr.Amusa that was present at the venue of the election, who clearly stated that the cause of the hullabaloo was because the student body of faculty of arts was not ready for an election.
The incumbent FASA president AY-FAB, clearly stated that he smelt a rat in the build-up to the election. The number of students presented by an anonymous department was overemphasized. According to the president, the suspicion started from the unscrutinized registration process.
It became a bitter-sweet scenario, as some went home indifferent while others were beginning to take things physical. All thanks to the presence of adequate authorities and corporative students, flames of any discord was put out. Hopefully, a new date for the elections would be made known in due course.
