Vote Wisely; Vote oafak!

FOR OUR NATION, these are difficult times indeed!      We are being bombed by the Boko Haram, Harassed by communal clashes; Fuel tankers blazing on the expressway! Plane crashing into people’s houses! Scandals Everywhere: Oil Subsidy, House Investigation etc. Hopelessness, helplessness!

OUR CAMPUS has not been spared. In addition to these, we have suffered the loss of our VC, The assault on our Brand Name, Campus Closure, Poor electricity supply, etc. It is certainly not the best of times for an election to any position including the dean. What shall we say to these things?

There are occasions in the life of man and nation when times are so hard that bewailing your losses becomes a luxury you can ill afford. You must act, or suffer even more losses! Indifference is too costly! The world outside is not waiting for us. While may be at standstill or even retrogressing, THE REST OF THE WORLD MARCHES ON! It is like a moving train: You enter or you are left behind. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, we are in dire need of hope. A breadth of fresh air; A doggedness and a persistence to innovate and move forward; A determination to prepare the youth of this country for the technological world in which they have to compete. We cannot afford to be distracted. WE MUST FIGHT FOR THE SOUL OF NIGERIA.
