An online news website had published a news item that positioned Delta State University (DELSU) as the first tertiary institution in Nigeria to conduct Student Union Government (SUG) online based election thereby demonstrating abrogation to nomothetic.
The report came on the heels of the claim by Delta State University (DELSU) Abraka, that it is the first to ever conduct Student Union Government online elections in Nigeria. This is not true and it is proper to correct the claim.
To set the records straight, University of Ilorin was the first to conduct an internet based SUG elections in Nigeria. A friend, Ikenna Hakam Ogundu who had his NYSC experience in the University explained to me that students voted at different locations irrespective of distance, provided they were eligible and had access to the School’s portal.
