The Nigeria Union of Campus Journalists, University of Calabar Council (NUCJ-UCC) has organized a debate for candidates vying for positions into various offices in the next dispensation of the Students Union Government (SUG).

The debate which held at the Malabor square within the University of Calabar, yesterday, presented students the opportunity of assessing their future leaders and note their ability to tackle administrative issues headlong.

Speaking on the debate, the NUCJ National President, Comrade Pepple Uduak Gilbert said the debate is actually the first time all or most of the candidates will be meeting and interacting with this number of students.

“This debate gives the aspirants the platform of not just knowing the strength of their popularity, but also assessing the strength of their opponent. What aspirants need to do now is take their performance from this debate and work on it prior to the elections proper next week.” He said.

Also speaking, the Chairman of the NUCJ 2015 Aspirant Debate Committee, Comrade Nnabiget Oke said he is sure the debate will help students to know what the aspirants have to offer. He reiterated the fact that results from previous debates have most times reflected the result in the polls and was optimistic that this year’s edition will not be different.

Also responding, a student of the university, who identified himself as James Ibok, said that he appreciated the work done by the NUCJ for giving the students the opportunity to know and interact with the aspirants whom they have only been hearing about.

“I didn’t just meet them today, I saw them debate and heard them respond to questions thrown at them.”

The debate had in attendance over 10 aspirants into various positions and had more than 2000 students who witnessed the event.
