The Students Union Government (SUG) Presidential elections in Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University (COOU) has saturated the atmosphere in the institution in view of the level of excitement it is generating.
As at the last count, nine candidates had indicated interest to move into the exalted position of SUG president.
Can it be called the zeal to lead the students or quest for power? Or is it because of the upcoming Anambra State governorship election? Some say it is greed and Okpolo eye for money that is moving most of the aspirants.
Never in the history of Chukwuemka Odumegwu Ojukwu University has it been heard that more than six persons are aspiring for the office of the President in the Student Union Government (S.U.G) level, ranging from the past governments of Com. Obiako Casmire, Com. Nze Samuel Onunkwor, Com. Ijeh Felix down to the present and incumbent president Com. Anumudu Clement.
Several contenders have emerged from various faculties. This is serious as faculty of Law is represented by two candidates namely Mr. Kizito Okoye (kizzy cares) and Mr. Michael Umunnakwe (dynamic mickey), while faculty of Management Sciences is represented by two candidates namely Mr. Azuogaranya Charles from entrepreneurship department and Mr. Chibuzor Bravo from Business Administration department.
