The President of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko Students’ Union (AAUASU), Obagunwa Oluwasegun Daniel also known as Supreme said no incumbent SU president will be agitating for election that will take him out of office.
Supreme said this in a WhatsApp message in response to some student stakeholders that are agitating for the Union’s election. Some students are now agitating that the current president of the union should leave the office with the hashtag #SupremeMustGo.
Obagunwa Segun added that all the people tagging him in the agitation of the election are hypocrites. He opined that it is not his duty to conduct election and that he is not the one to fund the election.
His comment reads, “All of you tagging me asking me for election are all hypocrites. Is it my duty to conduct election. And moreso will I be the one to fund the election.
“If you are the incumbent SUG PRESIDENT will you be agitating for election that will take you of office.
“Let’s be factual. You can agitate for election but pls don’t tag me.”
Supreme is the real and a quintessential hypocrite
In an exclusive interview with the ‘democratic elected’ president of the union, he told AAUA Insider that, “Personally, as the president I am exhausted, in fact I have served the students and at this juncture I should have handed over power to the next administration because I need to face my exams and project.”
When you say you are tired and have served the students then you should take actions towards it. The dictionary describes a hypocrite as a ‘person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings’. According to this definition, Supreme is a quintessential hypocrite as his statement that no incumbent SU president will agitate for election that will take him out of office contradict the earlier statement that he is ‘exhausted’ of the position.
Any sane incumbent president should know an elected position is not a lifetime position. If they don’t tag the incumbent president, who should they tag? ‘‘Our lives begin to end the day we keep silent about things that matter – Martin Luther King Jr.’’
Supreme advises students to find other means to raise funds. Is he telling them to engage in fraudulent activities?
In response to a student that complained about the forfeiture of studentship, if any students fails to complete his or her registration, the should-have-gone president of the union said, “If you aren’t financially balanced you can try other means to raise funds. The AAUASU won’t allow any anti student policy to stand but however we can’t overlook the fact that university needs funds to survive”.
It is no news that not all fingers are equal, as some students find it easy to pay the ‘exorbitant’ tuition fee, some find it hard to pay. In fact, a lot of students are owning the school. Many of the students have said the inability to pay is due to the financial constraints of their parents. For a fact, workers are being owed several months salaries.
The president as a sane mind should actually tell the students legit ways to make money. You can’t just tell someone to find other means to pay school fees. Are you telling them to engage in fraud?
Supreme had a busy administration that he did not hold a press conference or congress
Comrade Obagunwa Oluwasegun is another version of the current president of the country, if not worse, when it comes to addressing or speaking to the people that actually elected you into office. What happened to ‘government of the people, by the people and for the people’?
Students at many points in time have demanded for congresses and press conferences as a platform for the president to listen to their yearnings, but Supreme feels he knows what all the students want.
Edmund Burke, an Anglo-Irish philosopher said, “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”. No one has erred in the process of agitating for election. We are all members of the union.
