Reacting to their absence at the 7th Sense Behind The Veil program on 14th January, the Students’ Union Central Executive Council has said that due processes were not followed in inviting the Council to the program.
Highlighting late notification as a major factor of absenteeism, the Council said that their absence should not be surprising to the organizers as their absence had earlier been communicated.
The Assistant General Secretary of the Students’ Union, Ajede Khadijat Adebanke a.k.a Bankz, told UCJ that “we had earlier informed them the possibility of our absence as we had many things at hand….. I received the letter on Wednesday, 9th which was only four days away from the program. The Convergence was on Tuesday and we had to make plans.”
The Convergence is a Students’ Program held on Tuesday, 15th of January.
