DSA Annuls All Faculty Elections, Orders Fresh Elections

The Division of Students Affairs, Obafemi Awolowo University Ile-ife has annulled the elections held by Faculties to select candidates who would represent them on the proposed committee by Division to assist in the process of reinstating the Students Union. The annulment was as a result of a number of irregularities noticed in the Electioneering processes of some Faculties.

In a communique also released by the Association of Campus Journalists, OAU, she has also come out to clear the air on the alleged misinformation that was said to have trailed the Association's communique on the first meeting. The association, which was also present at the meeting, was informed that there were some modifications to the proceedings of the meeting after it ended which led to the discrepancies in outcome of the Meeting by the several bodies in attendance especially as regards the representatives from the Faculties eventually becoming Election and Election Petition Committee members.

However, the Division of Students Affairs, has also stated that a new election would be carried out next Thursday across all Faculties which would be adequately supervised.
