Hon. Ola, an SRC member of the faculty, read out the clause of the constitution which state that, a FIEC member must be one who haven’t held any political post.  He further revealed that a representative from psychology holds a position in his department, this saw the department of psychology not been represented.
Com. Deji suggested that the formation of FIEC should be postponed till the next day for proper representation.
