Opinion: Osun State University Alumni association 2024 elections.

Yesterday the electoral commitee of the UNIOSUN Alumni association released the list of candidates and other important information about the election:

The document reveals more than 200 alumni are likely to decide the fate of the 15 candidates running for various positions. A number of positions have no candidates. This 27th of April, 2024 election is a continuation of the postponed election.
Further it reveals that one of the four presidential candidate, Oriola Oladipupo, the former president, will not be contesting for a second term anymore as has not shown interest in paticipating in the rescheduled election.

Following this, two major camps have emerged, the revitilisation group and the emancipation group.
A choice between “Revitalization” and “Emancipation” seems to encapsulate two different visions for the future of UNIOSUN (Osun State University) and its alumni community. “Revitalization” suggests a focus on rejuvenating and strengthening the institution, possibly through reforms, innovation, and investment in various areas such as academics, infrastructure, and alumni engagement. On the other hand, “Emancipation” implies a desire for liberation, perhaps from perceived constraints, limitations, or past practices that may have hindered progress or stifled the full potential of the university and its alumni.

The outcome of this election will likely depend on how these concepts are interpreted by the alumni and which vision resonates more strongly with their aspirations for the university’s future. It reflects a pivotal moment for the UNIOSUN community to shape the direction of the institution and chart a course that aligns with its values, goals, and ambitions. Are the electorates looking to be free from a perceived bondage or are they to look forword to a future better than the present? The choice is in the hands of the voters.

The revitilisation group has presented its 16 point agenda and the presidential manifesto of Engr. Olasupo Bashorun.

Other candidates in the group are Olaopa Olaleke who is running for the position of National Social Director and teslim Kudomi running for the position of National Treasurer.
