It is of uttermost importance for me to rise at such a time like this, being a leader rather than an impostor as opposed to what has come to characterise students’ movement in Nigeria.

I believe strongly that there is no better time to revisit the role of students’ unionism in the Nigerian tertiary institutions. It is often said that when the purpose of a thing is not known, abuse is inevitable.

Without doubt, the role of students in the success of university administration, especially in the age of democracy, cannot be overemphasised as the students’ body constitutes the critical mass of a university campus. In plain terms, student unionism is aimed at offering ideas, initiatives and perspectives that foster better conditions for students.

It is a platform for addressing the problems of the Nigerian students and the effective running of the university administration as well as its implications for good governance in Nigeria.

Various students’ unions in tertiary institutions are expected to serve students and represent their interest in order to promote discipline, orderliness and oneness among students and their school authorities. That is, students’ union government were established in various institutions of higher learning to promote unity, orderliness and smooth relationship between students, school authorities and the state or federal government.

As it stands, most students’ union government in Nigeria institutions have failed to understand the essence of their existence.
