The election which was done elec­tronically had students turned out en mass to elect their preferred candi­dates.

Announcing the winners, the elec­toral Chairman, Dr. Benson Igboin said the university in a bid to have a 21st Century university and its re­solve to adopt global best practices have made it pertinent for the institu­tion to adopt e-voting system.

He said, “We made students to un­derstand that a 21st century univer­sity is driven by technology, innova­tion and creativity and that e-voting system is part of the 21st century package”

While urging those who lost at the poll to cooperate with the winners, the SUEC chairman charged the win­ners not to renege on their promises. He urge them to pursue their agenda in tandem with the

requirements of 21st Century stu­dent unionism.

Speaking on the newly intro­duced Electronic Voting system, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Ig­bekele Ajibefun extolled the pro­cess saying the initiative is inge­nious and great. “It is a rare feat which we are proud of as a uni­versity; it has been our resolve to move away from the analogue to digital in virtually all facets of endeavours, including teaching and learning.

The VC also said AAUA had made another landmark achieve­ment as one of the few institu­tions that has introduced the e-voting system in the country.

“AAUA is a leading university in other major areas, we can also be among the first to introduce e-voting and set the pace for other universities and the nation which are still struggling with the pos­sibility of achieving such a feat.
