The Faculty of Management Sciences Students Association (FAMSSA) held its election for the executive offices for the 2020/2021 Academic session on the 28th of April 2021 at the popular MLH (Management Lecture Hall) of the faculty.
Students from the constituent six departments in the faculty: Accounting, Finance, Administration, Marketing, IRPM (Industrial Relations and Personel Management) and Public Administration were lined up at the venue as early as 8:00am in what was to be a fierce contest, ready to exercise their voting rights.
The voting process, which began exactly at 10am and ended 3:00pm was a bit rowdy at first due to the student rush but a highly respected Dr Fagbemi (a lecturer in the department of Accounting) intervened and restored decorum.
After a careful collation and counting by the Independent Student Electoral Commission (ISEC) members, The results showed AUTONOMOUS a 300 level from the department of Accounting as the winner after securing 914 votes as against WESTMINSTER’s 895 from the department of Marketing.
Eyewitness accounts from two students from the department of Public Administration and Marketing say that the election was marred by irregularities while others from Accounting and Finance say It was free and fair.
As at the time of writing this report, the two prominent aspirants have not commented their take on the elections.
Here is a break down of the results released by the ISEC Chairman Mr Oyebamire Monsuru Idowu which he also declared free and fair:
