The election of the Faculty of Art Student Association; FASA, was set for 10pm, but the voting process abruptly started around 11:30. The condition was conducive for the election. In small groups and troupes, students made way to exercise their constitutional rights.
The bone of contention after the cancelled election was the actualization of a free and fair election. A notable figure at the election which held at History lobby was Dr Amusa, whose presence coupled with the selfless services of the incorruptible electoral commissioners paved way for a hiccup election.
There were two candidates from two different departments under FASA, Zachman and Hamzat as they are popularly called.
The voting process ended officially around a few minutes after 4pm. Just as the saying goes the voice of the people is the voice of God. Hamzat, a part 3 student of the department of philosophy, emerged as the president-elect of FASA. Hamzat claimed the spot with a narrow 277- 248 votes, against a very rigid opponent in the person of Zachman. This is a break down of the votes by the departments of FASA:
Department of English
ZACH MAN. 112votes
Department of History
Department of Philosophy
Department of Linguistics
Department of Music
Department of Religious Study
Department of Dramatic Arts
Department of Foreign Languages
