My satirical friend Modiu Olaguro and i had pointed out some of the major flaws of the ULSU constitution before it was enacted.
Infact Modiu in his latest post on facbook recalled how we came up with perhaps the most controversial press release in Unilag, calling for the resignation of the VC, DSA and criticizing some lecturers on the compulsory sale of textbooks.
Modiu even offered to share once again the grave errors of the ULSU which we identified in another press release.
Instead of correcting this errors, a good constitution was sacrificed on the alter of ‘no perfect constitution’. We moved on and ratified it.
With less than a year that SUG returned with great promises of better student welfare, the Constitutional crisis has began.
Without selfess leaders, the errors of the ULSU constitution will continue to hunt the student body and may eventual plunder it into oblivion again.
