Victor Egba Declaration Of Interest To Run For President SUG 2020/2021
It was John F. Kennedy that said, “Change is the law of life and those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the Future”
Our journey through this union has been worthwhile with it’s peculiar challenges, in all you will agree with me that I have lived true to my promise of laying down my time and soul in service of my peers. At all times I have placed myself at the position of the students, you who elected me and carried out my duties with utmost dedication and humility. It is my believe that when people put you in a place of service you owe them a duty to serve at all times.
The very apparent reality is that our union deserves quality leadership, one that can walk the talk, be available and listen to the heart of its people, speaking for them and initiating policies and programmes that is geared towards the improvement of the welfare and well-being of it’s members.
As Secretary General my job description was already stated by the provisions of our constitution and herein we could do only as permitted herein.
We organised the Congress of Critical appraisal giving members the opportunity to contribute before all management cadre and this was a critical rallying point for setting the stage for the Leadership and the Union.
We organised a plethora of townhall meetings to listen and address critical issues of concern that had arisen, the Accreditation Issues affecting most of our friends and gladly we reached a favourable compromise for the FUTURE of our peers.
We also did likewise with FRESHMEN from whence we underscored the issues of multiple payments and informed the Leadership on the need to regulate that.
As Secretary we were actively involved in the problem shooting in areas of concern that included refunds and protection of Students rights, improved welfare and many more all within the confines of our job description.
We also negotiated with reputable companies and secured the opportunity to give free services worth over #300, 000 to Students from the Black and white saloon, and the forthcoming Google Digital training as well as others.
This is not all that we could do, our exposure will do something for us, Inspire us of the plethora of needs and challenges our students go through everytime, the assurances is that we have the necessary experience and will power to Fix It. If given the mandate.
That is why, I’m asking you to support a leadership that is poised at making the Union live upto it’s expectations as we sojourn together in making our Union work for all and for our Future.
My dear comrades, I might not look so much different from the many that have come before you, my height or complexion might not be so peculiar but I ask you to judge be by the quality of my mind, for the mind is the master of the man.
My humble background has taught me to be humble yet firm, resolute while being a listener and above all put others first.
It is with the believe that we can reposition our Union on the right trajectory, building on the progress of past administrations and improving on it’s lacunas for the overall good of all and sundry that I, having taught it through is presenting myself for this very noble and demanding responsibility of providing quality Leadership for the next one year.
It is the compulsion for service, and believe in the possibilities beyond borders that I hereby *DECLARE MY INTEREST TO CONTEST FOR THE PRESIDENCY OF THE STUDENTS UNION GOVERNMENT, UNIVERSITY OF CALABAR* in the 2020/2021 Academic session.
even as I task you to join me create the FUTURE WE ALL CAN BE PROUD OF.
