The Electoral Committee headed by Mr. J.A. Sonibare (Deputy Registrar Council Affairs) indeed conducted a credible, fair and free election, which was well organized and SSANIP members casted their vote peacefully without any intimidation and rancor.

The College community applauded the Electoral Committee comprises of Mr. J.A. Sonibare (Chairman), Mr. M.S. Madayedu (Secretary), Mr. M. Pius, Mrs. P.I. Ihesie and Mrs. Odusanya, for a well done job, which had no flaw, and thereby called on Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to borrow a leaf from Sonibare led committee.

The immediate past Chairman of SSANIP Omopariola and the entire members wished the newly elected executives outstanding success, and advised them to work as a team to move the union to highest level.
