“When I resumed duty as the Vice Chancellor of Federal University Otuoke, Bayelsa State, I met a vibrant Student Union Executives but to correct things and make them look the way they are in other universities, I decided to make them the Student Union Government instead of executives and today, the body I inherited is handing over the baton to another government for the period of time under consideration” he said. He also went further to commend the election committee (Eleco) for conducting a free, fair and credible election which brought about the peace every other key player is enjoying today.
The Registrar, Mr. Kenneth Sonradein in his opening remark advised to executives and all those being inaugurated into various positions in the SUG to remember the primary reason they came to school in the first place which was to study. “What you have done is because you have confidence and that confidence has made you to do what you have done. You are here to study and continue to do so because this university is a university of first class and so do things that would make us proud of you after now”.
The Dean of student affairs Dr. Omoro also appreciated God for making the entire process peaceful and successful and thanked the students for coming out to vote during the Election Day despite the rainfall.
