The Nigerian Union of Campus Journalist (NUCJ), UNICAL Council on Wednesday 22th of July, 2014 organized a debate for aspirants into various offices in the upcoming Students Union Government (SUG) elections.

The debate which held at the Malabor square within the University had in attendance more than 1000 students who had come to scrutinize their to-be leaders.

Speaking at the event, the Chairman, Calabar University Electoral Commission (CUECO), Dr. N. Igiri urged all contestants to take the race as an opportunity to serve .

“Take students politics as a service. Service to your fellow students and to your consciousness”

Speaking to our correspondent, the Chairman NUCJ debate planning committee, Comr. Pepple Uduak Gilbert said it has taken planning and time to organize this and hope students maximally benefitted from it.

also speaking, the NUCJ President Comr. Ekemini Raymond John, said the debate provides a platform for the assessment of not just candidate’s speaking ability but their ability to think and bring results within the shortest possible time.

A student of the university, Nnabiget Oke, expressed joy over the debate, as it serves as a “mechanical” means of selection of candidates, and he advised that “candidates should be informed that they are debating and not presenting their manifesto” in subsequent editions.

The NUCJ Aspirant debate is organized yearly by the Nigeria Union of Campus Journalist, University of Calabar Council for students contesting in the Student’s Union Government election in UNICAL.
