BUK SUG Election: Student Affairs Reads Riot Act As Election Set to hold on 16th August 2018

The Deanery of Student Affairs has cautioned the  Bayero University, Kano’s Independent Electoral  Commission to do everything within its constitutional  powers to conduct a credible and transparent Student  Union Government election. The commission was also  warned to avoid any act capable of causing disaffection  among students, as its activities would be under close  monitoring.

This was part of the call made by the Dean, Student  Affairs, Dr. Shamsuddeen Umar, during an interactive  session between the Student Affairs and officials of  BUKIECO, as well as some candidates seeking  election into various SUG posts on Friday, 20 July,  2018.


The election is scheduled to hold on August, 16 2018.


The Deanery felt that it was necessary to invite the  stakeholders and intimate them about the importance of
the election.


The Dean enjoined the BUKIECO officials to live up to  the expectation accorded to them and carry out all their  assignments throughly with a sense of fairness and fair
play and exercise their constitutional rights as being  truly independent. He also called on the aspirants to  know that mainstream politics starts here; therefore,  they should accept defeat and victory in good faith.
Dr. Umar further charged them to desist from hiring  mercenaries from outside capable of causing violence  and failure, as this will attract stiff penalties.


The Deputy Deans of Old and New Campus, Dr. Umar  Sani and Dr. Dahiru Sani Shuaibu, as well as the  Deputy Registrar in charge of Student Affairs, Hajiya  Anisatu Uwais, advised the students to play the rule by  the game and work as a team to conduct free, fair and  unbiased elections. The BUKIECO was also advised to try as much as  possible to rebuild confidence in the minds of the  students by sanitizing all forms of electoral processes,  ranging from cautioning aspirants against pasting
posters on university walls and organizing healthy  presidential debates.
