Live by Example – Prof. Eno Ibanga charges Parliamentarians

Share This

The 2019 Akwa Ibom State University Students Union Legislative day was yesterday, held at the main campus of the University. The exercise had as its theme “Legislature - the true Anchor of Democracy” and had a sub theme “Students’ Health and Counseling Services”

In his remarks the Vice Chancellor of Akwa Ibom State University (AKSU), who was ably represented by Prof. Idongesit Isaac - Deputy Vice Chancellor (Administration), charged students and the Legislators to always live by example and ensure that they do not break the laws that are made by them, in the first place. He frowned at what our society has become today and expressed strong confidence that the new crop of students’ leaders that AKSU is producing will grow up to salvage the decadence in the society, where people have little or no regards for the rule of law.

Speaking on the Students Health and Counseling Services, Dr. Dominic Ukpong opined that “time is the determiner of all things including health" and that students should learn to manage their time properly. The Honourable Commissioner expressed sadness at the number of students that have lost-out in various institutions because they have not been careful enough to pay close attention to their personal  health needs. “without a sound and a healthy body, academic success mostly ends up as a day dream” he submitted.

The Speaker of the Akwa Ibom State Students Union Parliament, Hon. Ibanga Emmanuel had earlier welcomed guest to the event and took time to appreciate the Akwa Ibom State University management for the support and conducive environment they have given them to perform their responsibilities effectively. 
Prof. Eno Ibanga is a rare man of honour, who has shown uncommon determination to turn Akwa Ibom State University into a first class academic institution

The event was graced by HRM Edidem (Elder) Akpan A. Ekpene, the Paramount Ruler of Mkpat Enin Local Government Area, Rt. Hon Usoro Akpanusoh, the Akwa Ibom State University Librarian, Prof Eno Ottong, various student bodies and Parliamentarians from University of Uyo, Akwa Ibom State Polytechnic (Ikot Osuruah) well as College of Education (Afaha Nsit).

The 2019 Akwa Ibom State University Students Union Legislative day was primarily aimed at enlightening the students’ community about the Legislative arm of government, the powers of the Legislative arm of government and the impact it has on democracy. High point of the event was the launching of a brand new mace by the Vice Chancellor. Several awards of recognition were presented during the colourful event. It was moderated by Mr. Emmanuel Joseph while Dj MacPrynzy provided sound and music.
