Unilorin stu­dents’ union holds sum­mit

Daily Trust - - CAMPUS ROUNDUP - By Ali Toyin Ab­dul

There was a lot of glam­our re­cently when the stu­dents’ union of the Univer­sity of Ilorin held its an­nual lead­er­ship sum­mit. The event at­tracted dig­ni­taries who in­cluded first class tra­di­tional rulers, top pub­lic func­tionar­ies, heads of cor­po­rate bod­ies and the univer­sity man­age­ment, among oth­ers.

High­light of the event was the launch­ing of an aca­demic jour­nal ti­tled ‘The Eru­dite’ which was in hon­our of Jus­tice Modibbo Alfa Bel­gore, the for­mer Chief Jus­tice of Nigeria.

The vice chan­cel­lor, Prof. Ab­dulGaniyu Am­bali, re­it­er­ated the need for na­tional de­vel­op­ment through youth lead­er­ship train­ing.

He ex­tolled the hon­ouree for his self­less con­tri­bu­tion to the de­vel­op­ment of the na­tion.

Glam­our was not left out, as the per­form­ing troupe of the Per­form­ing Art Depart­ment of the univer­sity en­ter­tained the au­di­ence with an ac­ro­batic dis­play.

Also fea­tured at the oc­ca­sion was a rib-cracking com­edy by a stu­dent and co­me­dian, Oyaz Baba.

The event saw the pre­sen­ta­tion of awards to in­di­vid­u­als that have distin­guished them­selves in their cho­sen ca­reers. The awardees in­cluded Jus­tice Modibbo Alfa Bel­gore; Dr. Ab­dul­fa­tah Ahmed, Gover­nor of Kwara State; and Malam Yusuf Olaolu Ali, Se­nior Ad­vo­cate of Nigeria (SAN).

Quadri Rasaq, a 200 Level Law stu­dent said the event had mo­ti­vated him to as­pire for great­ness in life. “I was moved by the hon­ouree’s ci­ta­tion,” he added. An­other stu­dent, Isiak Su­ly­man de­scribed the hon­ouree as a beacon of hope to the up­com­ing gen­er­a­tion. “The stu­dents union of the univer­sity is the best in re­cent times,” a stu­dent who pre­ferred anonymity noted.

In her re­marks, the stu­dents’ union vice pres­i­dent, Miss Oluwakemi Has­san, thanked the univer­sity’s man­age­ment for its un­flinch­ing sup­port in mak­ing the pro­gramme a suc­cess.
