Hope Francis Idika Challenges The Declaration Of Kichi-Akwo Godsgift As UNICAL SUG President Elect

Miss Idika, Hope Francis, 1st runner up in the just concluded SUG Presidential Election has written to the Vice Chancellor of the University of Calabar, UNICAL challenging the declaration of Sen. Kichi-Akwo God’sgift as President Elect of the Students’ Union Government, SUG by the Calabar University Electoral Commission, CUECO.

According to her petition, the president elect at the time of election, was not qualified to contest the election based on the provision of section 49 (4) of the SUG constitution as his current CGPA falls below the 3.50 required by law.

She prayed that;

1. An order to the effect that a planned inauguration and swearing in ceremony of Sen. Kichi-Akwo Godsgift as the SUG president should be cancelled.

2. That it be determined that all votes recorded for Sen. Kichi-Akwo Godsgift are wasted votes owing to his ineligibility. (which automatically makes her the winner of the presidential election for being the 1st runner up)

3. That it be determined that in the basis of the above grounds, the petitioner scored the majority of lawful votes cast at the election and therefore satisfied the requirements to be declared the winner of the SUG Election.


An order cancelling the election and compelling the Calabar University Electoral Commission (CUECO) to conduct a fresh election at which Sen. Kichi-Akwo Godsgift shall not participate.
