IMSU SUG Update: Electoral Commission Distance Self From Purported Re-Run Of Election


Imsu Elijah

The protracted SUG election of Imo state university have taken a new dimension following the dissociation of the electoral commission from an alleged date being circulated online for the re-run of the election.

It has been alleged in a section of the social media that the SUG election which went inconclusive on January 26th has been re-scheduled to hold on Friday 25th May. Following this back drop, the 17th republic electoral committee under the chairmanship of Mr. Clinton Uzoukwu has come out to say that it has absolutely nothing to do with the purported date.

In a chat with the wireless team recently in the campus, the chairman, Mr. Clinton maintained that a dully signed Memo is always dispersed to faculty representatives once there is a recent happening, but in this instance, none have been sent.

He said

“We have not given a date, if UNECO gives a date, a dully signed Memo by the electoral chairman would be sent across to all faculty representatives, informing them of the development.

He maintained that issuing a memo has always been the culture, recalling that when the election time-table was uttered, a dully signed memo was dispersed to faculty representatives informing them of the blooming incident.

Answering to who was to be held responsible for the outcome of the election on January 26th, the electoral chairman said 

The election that was cancelled is nobodys fault; I will always take the blame because I am at the helm of affairs and answerable officially, but when you scrutinize it properly, you will discover it doesnt fall to me.

He continued  

I really want the election to come, the school management is in support that it comes, my team (electoral members) are also in support; the election will come but it will take a little rigorous process and we are on it  he voiced.
He furthered that the School Management has not called the UNECO to brief them pertaining to any proposed election date but advised all aspirants who are still in the aluta-struggle to be very ready as the real election date will be officially announced soon, he concluded.
