The Students Union president of University of Ilorin Comrade Okoko Wisdom Oluwaseun (Passion) has made a disclosure that serving as the president of the Union has not been an easy task.
He made this known on Tuesday in his thirteen paragraphs season’s greetings message to all students of the Union. He wrote, “Before the year runs out, I just want to express what an incredible honour it has been so far to serve you as President.
“It’s been a tough tale down this path but somehow we have been able to weather all the storm and make it to the last month through hard work, diligence, commitment, and passion.”
“As we celebrate tomorrow, the eventful 2019 calendar will be drawing to a close in a couple of days and as we prepare to embrace the new year, there is no better time to say thank you to everyone for being a significant part of the Better By Far University.”
Passion, however, expressed his inestimable gratitude to the school management and the Students Affairs Unit for creating a conducive learning environment and preserving morals and inspiring good character amongst the students.
Not left out of his votes of thanks were students of the university for their usual cooperation with the Union, and members of the Central Executive Council for excelling in their respective capacity. “We are here, we have been through a lot and we are still in business” he added.
He asserted that it has really been a challenging year because some students in the past twelve months have experienced psychological, social, medical and emotional breakdowns. “We have lost loved ones, friends, gone through days where we have to loan funds from friends to keep pulling through”
“Some of us have been victimized by crime or other socially unacceptable vices and it’s taken a ton of our individual and collective energy to get back on our feet. It really has been a challenging year but I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished together.”
He enjoined students to enjoy the spirit of the Yuletide season and to have in mind that love and kindness to others will last all year round.
