Delta State University Conducts First Ever Online Students’ Union Govt Election

THE Delta State University (DELSU), Abraka, has conducted the first ever solely online Students’ Union Government election in Nigeria.

The election’s software developed by the university enabled the students, during the just concluded students’ union government election, to vote online from any location within and outside the university.

Dean of Students’ Affairs, Professor Augustus Atubi, while reacting to the innovation, said the online electoral feat was attained because of the university’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Victor Finipaya Peretomode’s flair for the continuous adoption, acquisition and application of digital tools and processes in the institution.

He added that the Vice Chancellor has put together a crack team of professional Information and Communication Technologies developers in the ICT Unit of the university who have made groundbreaking digital innovations.

Professor Atubi said the online voting platform was just one of the digital innovations propelled by Prof Peretomode.

Prof Atubi noted that the Vice Chancellor’s love for the development and deployment of ICTs in the university among staff and students has added to placing the institution in a better and positive local and global visibility and has made admission seekers and their parents make DELSU a preferred destination for academic and moral excellence.

The Dean of Students explained that the process involves the students to log in to the site, using their names and matriculation numbers as users’ name and passwords respectively.

The results are automatically transmitted online to the server and made visible to anyone access to the server.

It will be recalled that in 2018, a lecturer from the institution, Dr Emmanuel Ufuophu-Biri, had, during his lecture at the celebration of NTA at 40 in Asaba, advocated and prescribed measures and methods for a totally digital electoral process in the country.

Meanwhile, the students have commended the Vice Chancellor for the adoption of the online voting method, adding that online voting experience was exactly akin to what they read, watch or hear about the electoral processes in advanced countries.

The students also commended the VC for his students’ friendly disposition which is further demonstrated through the adoption and application of the current online voting system.
