ELECTION SERIES – VOX POPULI: WHO THE CAP FITS

Hello beautiful people of the prestigious faculty of law. How y’all doing? It’s that time of the year again. Yep. The time one knows the other’s ‘true colour.’ The time friends become ‘slys’ or ‘slies’ whichever way it’s spelt. The time bcs of all sorts roll in; head bursting bcs that will make you wonder what you’re even doing with your life (“see what my mates are doing”). The time dirty linens are washed in public; that thing about someone you never esperred will just spring out from somewhere or nowhere because he/she is contesting for a particular post and y’all do not want him/her to win. So y’all play dirty politics. It’s the faculty elections. Different people have declared their intentions to contest for (and win) various executive positions in the LSS. They have all drafted beautiful plans that will be executed (if they do win). Plans like… well, come for the Manifesto at the Law Annex on Tuesday the 8th of August, 2017.

This post echoes your opinions of the students of the faculty, who they do want to fill the vacuum (oh okay it’s not empty) of the seat of the LSS President. This is basically a vox pop on who y’all think the cap fits. A specific number of students were sampled from each class and this is what y’all had to say:

Alliyu Faruq. I believe he has more charisma and a better sense of responsibility.” –El chapo.

Boye. I do not know why sha. I just feel like he really wants to serve and he has been serving since like day one. And he has convinced me. I know what he is capable of. I just feel like he is the right man for the job. I do not really know what the other guy is up to and I feel like Boye seems quite independent. He is the man behind his vision. But this other guy I just feel like he has some people that are pushing him. That is my opinion o. He does not look like someone that has his own stand. He looks like someone that people are just telling what to do. Boye seems more on his own. He has his own plans. He is already even trying to push the other candidates, telling them that they should be ready to work if they win. And I can see the drive and energy. He is mobile and he has been trying for these people since year one.” –Dapo.

I don’t even know who to support. Maybe after the manifesto.” -Yinka.

Faruq. He has a lot to offer. His intentions are in line with the pressing issues of the LSS.” -Cendy.

Boye. Because I like him more than I like Faruq.  –Tron.

Both of them do not have sense. Can another person just run? It would have been better if another person should just run. They are both flawed, so we are just trying to pick the most un-flawed. It’s just like, which one is not as rotten as the other? They are both rotten eggs. It is like picking between HIV and Ebola. You have no choice you have to pick one. You’ll still die; you just have to pick the one that does not kill faster.” -Devil’s advocate.

Faruq. I believe in his plans and manner of approach.” -LSS best player

“I am not really interested because I am not feeling any of them. So when manifesto comes, I’ll decide. But right now, I really do not know. –Funmi.

Alliyu Faruq. Because he does not undermine his opponent to boost himself in campaigns, and he has really good plans for the LSS.” –Unscripted writer.

Definitely rebirth. Everyone is definitely alive; don’t tell us to come alive. But what will be reborn out of the ashes we find ourselves in presently. So I’m for rebirth. I’m for Boye.” -The Joker.

As much as I am not really impressed by the two candidates that are coming from class of ’18, I feel Boye is somebody that is a goal getter, and therefore would not be influenced by the people around him. I also feel he knows a lot of important people, and that will help in pooling resources together. I like the fact that he is radical, and the best president LSS has had is Cornel because of how radical he was. Apparently, I am on Faruq’s campaign group chat. I just agreed because I didn’t want him to waste my time convincing me, because I know he couldn’t.” –Princewill.

I would prefer Alliyu Faruq, even though his campaign and socialization shit is nothing to write home about. My preference for Alliyu is due to his personality presentability, his responsibility and no image tarnishing report so far.” –J.

Faruq. His plans  are achievable within the 10 months he has in office and he has what it takes to fare well.” –Conte.

I’ll go for rebirth because I want a president and not some presidents.” –A.

Alliyu Faruq. He has good and practical plans for the LSS.” –John.

Alliyu Faruq. Going by his pedigree and past feats, he has shown and proven to be a reliable and intuitive leader. His blueprint for his Presidentil race is in itself the most feasible and achievable and not some blue sky thinking and ideas of the other quarters.” –Achebe.

THE ABOVE RESPONSES WERE POSTED EXACTLY AS RECEIVED.
