Israel clinched the victory with a total of 2,692 valid votes cast to beat his closest rival and second-time aspirant, Mr. Ogunseri Scott from the Faculty of Physical Sciences, who garnered a total of 2,645 votes to emerge second.
Students’ credibility to vote was predicated on their status of school fees with only those who’d paid being allowed to vote in both Ugbowo and Ekehuan campuses.
The University Management had earlier issued a statement, as part of the electoral guidelines, that only students who paid their tuition fee as at 4pm Monday 13th February, 2023, would be allowed to vote or participate in the exercise.
