Law Students’ Society; Way Forward, Our Expectations?

07 Sep

In what looks like a show of shame, we constituted the (little) number that graced the stakeholders meeting held almost a fortnight ago where the students’  Dean, Prof. Babawale, and Dr. Adebayo, his deputy amongst others including Our Faculty Dean, Prof. Ibidapo-Obe were prompt in attendance. It is most unfortunate that they had to wait for their host who had invited them to pour out their grievances, so minds could meet and resolve issues. 

Let me state categorically that the capacity of the Annex compared to the minimal attendance was embarrassingly annoying. The question is, has the LSS lost it capacity to mobilize their colleagues? Is the government no longer popular or have the students lost savor of the society’s sweet sensational taste.   What Could have gone wrong?

 

Making matters worse was to trade blames publicly on who was or should convey adequate information. The P.R.O was considered defaulting in his responsibilities but that was not why we had come. This went on for a couple of minutes before our most amiable Dean, and all invited. What runs through their minds could be inferred by a reasonable man as their conduct suggested the obvious. 

For me, it was washing dirty linen and a clear evidence that the LSS is not united. The big question is why? Why can’t our Youths, leaders of tomorrow coordinate, conduct, organize and compose themselves in such a manner that we expect them to be competent for further responsibilities in future.

Unfortunately, and without regret, one may say the administration of Tolu the erstwhile president although with crises had better management strategy. How about Lari-Williams, that boy was wonderful! You may do your private investigations! 

Way forward? Close ranks, and settle differences amidst yourselves, “A house divided against itself can not stand”. That is not to say you won’t have some hiccups, fuss, acrimony, discord, cacophony and foes but as leaders, manage situations. The implication of the obvious gap is contained in the popular cliché “When elephants fight, the grass suffers”. We, members of the society who in exercise of our constitutional right and the LSS constitution have voted and entrusted you with our mandate and our expectation is that you don’t disappoint as he who calls for higher responsibility must be certified competent in previous or present assignment. Help the present administration as members of the executive to succeed before questing on another assignment!  We all want to be President but the capacity, virtue, values and demands of such position requires more than “I want to be addressed as LSS President”. 

In the words of a popular scholar “Leadership is serious business, regardless your status, level or age”. You go for it when you have the capacity not basking euphoria.

    Sigh sigh sigh. It seems the writer writes just the way he talks. We had been willing to allow the speech thing cuz well, your mouth cannot be expected to have spell check. And you unfortunately are not equipped with sufficient understanding of grammar and punctuation use. Your phone however should be if your pocket is as sizeable as your mouth but alas…
    Looking at your article taught me a few things. Firstly I was not aware the word ‘blame’ could be pluralised. Why then are they trading blames? Has the LSS lost ‘it’ capacity. Something is definitely missing here. But it’s not the Lss but you who is missing an apostrophe and an ‘s’
    Then your tenses, the way u more from future to past to present. Are you a time traveller?
    Your work is full of so many unnecessary phrases and tautologies. What is a ‘popular cliche?’ Ain’t cliches by their very nature popular? Are there unpopular ones? The ‘washing dirty linen’ phrase did you purchase Akara with the adjoining part of it? That is just sheer laziness or literary madness. Going out of one’s way to use words when not necessary then omitting the components that leave your work senseless for the omission. You seem to me to be a confused wreck or at least your grammar is. I don’t get it. What are you trying to achieve? Is this on purpose? I cannot believe it to be ignorance. At this age and class such ignorance if it is that would be an enormous, allow me to borrow your term, ‘show of shame.’
    You must also desire to be an astronaut as you have been traversing the galaxy with the amount of space you have been giving. The space key is meant to be tapped once after every word. You don’t even have to go to school to know this.
    Your final line ‘not basking euphoria’ what does that even mean? In light of that and such other nonsensical statements your write up is replete with I feel compelled to make you this donation:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.merriamwebster

    In future I hope you will take the pains to check the meaning of the words you use before you flaunt your grammatical disabilities before us all.
    I cannot even go into the message of your writeup now as I firmly believe what you need is a refresher course in English grammar. After that perhaps you can proceed to discussing lighter issues before you graduate to having political opinions and airing them.

    No drakarysss for you sef.

      Mr Pendragon you know better than to raise such fallacies against the reasoning in this article poor grammar or not, does that fault the actual logic and reasoning behind the article, your lengthy comment is completely pointless my friends, the reasoning in the message is what is of priority here and not the grammar, sensitization not english essay competition.

    Sensitization? Message? My dear you can do no sensitization, pass no message if your form is incomprehensible. Let us assume that the writer perchance has a message of import or relevance to pass. It is severely muddled up by his bad grammar method and makes his point moot like the court he sought to join.
    You see, you cannot communicate to a french man in Yoruba or speak Yoruba to a Spaniard.
    Your friend’s grammar is so abysmal as to leave the desired end unachieved.
    At his age and standing(he might as well sit down as after this display his standing can’t still be standing) such a ‘show of shame’ as he put up in uncondonable.
    As for the message, what inane message is he passing? That the PRO is ineffectual? Come come. No one can say that. If anything he does his job overmuch. There’s a wide network of people that BC and send across messages for any event that is to take place. I get no more than five or six messages from diverse quarters on any issue happening in the faculty. So what is his point?
    People didn’t show up for the stakeholder’s meeting? If your friend the writer had any brains at all he would figure that maybe people didn’t show up not because they didn’t hear or were uninterested in the Lss government but because they knew the stakeholder’s forum was a farce, an attempt to look willing to listen without any actual desire do anything. That is why only the clueless and hopeful year one students attend. Anyone with half a brain knows this. But I suppose that’s too good a description for the writer.

    “That is why only the clueless and hopeful year one students attend.”
    -Pendragon

    Your words simply imply that only 5 of about 350 students in year one are clueless and hopeful.
    I refute your stand and question your stance as I am not clueless.

      Abeg tell us what you have heard of ‘word salad.’ And being a first year In an institution I have spent a half decade (allowing for strike) makes you clueless because well, knowledge comes with experience. Abi mr-not-clueless did you learn of the university system in your ss3 or while writing waec? *facepalm* pray tell me where you got your ‘clues’ from and how many of them you have seen or experienced in the scant months you’ve been here. Kindly remember that I was there and I shall be there is not the same. And what you’ve been told or heard counts for nothing. When you have sat a thousand days in the faculty, and shed your first skins, come back and we will peel the ‘clueless’ tag off you.
      For now eh Bros calm down and take it. Clueless is not a personal insult but a general tag for people that are new and havnt been tantalized with innumerable promises of reforms and brutally let down. You do not know for a fact you will be let down thua you are generally ‘hopeful.’ And being thus innocuous, *clueless*

      You really had to come and define word salad here did you? I suppose your education has not strayed to the area of sarcasm. Oh my dear young friend. I knew what word salad was when you were still wetting your nappies. You’re not accusing me of it are you? Pls go on and say it outright if you are. I promise this will only go horribly for you. And what about ‘half a decade’ and seeming leakage? My friend say something outrightly if you are. If you want a piece there’s enough to go around. Just say the word and I will serve you a quick meal you will not forget in a hurry.

    Hmmn. I have been observing and I should say this. The young man has doffed his hat so the older fighter here should honourably and humbly embrace the hand of peace over such a trivial issue.
