The University of Calabar student union government presidential debate will air today on Hit FM.
Screened aspirants of the SUG presidential election will defend their manifestos live on radio with students and parents listening in.
Students will have the opportunity to call in and ask the aspirants questions about their manifesto.
“In a view to mould future politicians with proper accountability and pedigree, we are setting up a platform that will ensure that things are done properly, young politicians will see value in having an agenda for whatever political position they want to occupy no matter how big or small,” Macdonald Peter-Anyangbe, head of programs and production Hit FM, said in a statement.
“To ensure a free and fair election, aspirants of the University of Calabar SUG presidential election were selected based on genuine CGPA, and the school has also adopted an E-voting system, where candidates can vote from wherever they are, as long as their school fees have been paid as a voting code will be sent to each qualified student during the election.”
James Okpiliya, electoral chairman and director of the centre for educational studies, UNICAL, assured that measures have been put in place to ensure that the e-voting system works and the election is a free and fair one.
