I am proud of my integrity during the course of my academic pursuit, my discernment and records have set in student struggle especially in an environment where not being an Ilorin indigene and a Muslim is a hindering factor to prominence before I Joined the student struggle but thank God I led the struggle that set the pace against religious and ethnic sentiments
My most regrettable action was not impeaching the 2014/2015 Senate President who fell below poor performance and was found guilty of financial misconduct and yet suspending the SU President who was about attempting same because I still see it as unfair judgement but thanks to former Sub Dean who was amazingly bias and selective in judgement especially when you are his.
- What do you like most in UNILORIN? And what do you think deserve(s) change?
The only thing I like about Unilorin is academic stability and the invisible sustaining the visible department, department of Microbiology.
The only thing that require change urgently have been changed and that is the Ex Sub Dean, Dr. A. Yusuf of student’s affairs and the other one yet unchanged is Mr. Hussein of students affair whose adrenaline is amazingly pumping in the realm of biasness and interference in due process of student Union because the Union ought to be respected and if he wants to contribute to the dealing of the students he should obtain the UTME form and seek readmission into the university community as a duly matriculated student as only duly matriculated student can act according to the Student Union Compendium

To all students and junior colleagues in student politics, lay your hand on constitution governing your studentship, associations you belong as only those who don’t know the law won’t know their right and hence prone to threat and intimidation.
Don’t be carried away with things that won’t matter in the long run.. Let posterity be the driving force to your various conduct and act in fairness so that even when we get to heaven and there is no God, you won’t feel disappointed.
Never forget “Only God is powerful”
