UNILORIN Alumni Write VC, Back Varsity’s Election Of Convocation Representatives


The University of Ilorin Alumni Association have reacted to a recent letter making the rounds about the institution’s just concluded election of convocation representatives.

The association in a letter written to the institution’s Vice Chancellor, Sulayman Age, noted that the letter allegedly written by one Stephen Fasakin was a nullity, as he had been suspended as president of the group.

The letter signed by Dr Musa Abdullah and Ibrahim Atanda, Acting chairman and secretary of the group respectively, noted that the letter was written by the suspended president without the knowledge and authority of the National Executive Committee.

The letter in full:

We refer to the letter on the above subject dated 18th day of March and addressed to your office by one Dr. Stephen Olawale Fasakin.

We write to inform you that the author of the letter on the above subject matter did not have the power to write such a letter having been duly suspended as the President of the University of Ilorin Alumni Association. Not only that, the letter was written by him without the knowledge and authority of the National Executive Committee

However, we state categorically that the procedure for convening and holding the Convocation held at the Auditorium on 19th March, 2021 was in line with the provisions of the University of Ilorin Act and same was duly complied with by the University Administration under your able leadership.

The entire members of the Unilorin Alumni wish to commend you for giving us the enabling environment to conduct the election of a representative of Convocation to the Governing Council.

Apart from the fact that the election was free and fair, it was equally rancour-free with impressive attendance.

We congratulate you on this achievement and assure you of our unalloyed support in steering the ship of our great University.

Thank you, sir.

Yours faithfully,

Dr Musa Abdullah
Ag. National President

Ibrahim Atanda ESQ
Ag. National General Secretary
