This schedule is expected to be released within the next day or two.”

According to Otunba Aladenika, the lifting of this initial suspension was contained in a memo issued by the Acting Registrar, Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, Comrade Ambrose E. Odiase, which said, “On the 2nd of May 2024, on-going preparations for the Student Union Elections were temporarily suspended. This suspension was the consequence of adverse security reports.

The University’s Head, Corporate Communications and Protocol further said, “Based on this recent development, the aspirants and, indeed, the entire students’ community are enjoined to remain calm and avoid actions that will truncate the elections.”
