Greatest UNIBEN Student's, we bring you good news and glad tidings from the entire Executive Council, The Pathfinder Excos, Students' Union Government,
University of Benin. We are grateful for the grace granted unto us to see the New Year.
Intellectual UNIBEN students, from the minute the 2018/2019 officials of the Union resumed office, we have taken conscious steps towards ensuring that individual and collective goals which would benefit a major population of the UNIBEN community are achieved. This has definitely come with its own fair share of challenges, internal and external alike, that have threatened the oneness of the Union but the struggle continues and we are grateful for the strength and encouragement to forge ahead, together.
More importantly, we need to come together to throw in our voices to re-echo the need for the Federal Government of Nigeria, ASUU and other associated bodies to reach a consensus to enable Nigerian students return to their institutions of learning. We are being delayed here in Nigeria while our counterparts in other parts of the world forge ahead leaving us behind. This is pathetic.
To this end, we call on all UNIBEN students to put their social media platforms, and every other means possible to good use, to urge the Federal Government to fulfil their outstanding promises which led to the strike, so that it can be resolved with immediate effect by lending our voices to ASUU.
Meanwhile, we urge you to put your time to good use by learning skills and engaging in other meaningful activities till resumption.
Lastly, we kindly request your maximum cooperation to enable us achieve more as a team.
We wish you a happy and prosperous New Year ahead.
