Can you introduce yourself?
My name is Olayinka popoola Olalekan,
known as ITESIWAJU. I’m a 200 level student of Osun state university, from the Department of Political science and international Relations of College of management and Social Sciences (Okuku Campus)
We learnt you are aspiring for a political post on campus?
Yes I’m aspiring for the post of College of management and social sciences students Association (COMSSSA) P.R.O.
I understand the key role Public Relations can play in morphing the experience of students. I want students to be more involved in the activities of the college and hope to disseminate information in a more structured manner. I have worked for tons of student initiatives such as NAGS and I know how to reach greater audiences and give voice to people.
Okay, do you have any experience related to public relations?
I have served and still serving as the P.R.O of some students Association and organizations. I’m the National Association of Gbongan students P.R.O. I’m the Social Media Officer for Mercy babs communication (OMO EDEMA).
I have much understanding and experience as a public relations officer. I know how to fight and negotiate for the rights of students through my experience as a P.R.O. Before now I have been getting along with all students, by passing across the necessary information’s to them through the use of social media, posting news updates and at the same time giving them updates about things going on in the college and the six campuses at large.
Do you have any opponent?
Yes I have an opponent.
Do you think you will win?
I am confident people will vote for me. Right from my first day on campus, I have been serving the interest of the whole students and during the time I was the school hostel president, I also served the interest of the students and I believe this is an avenue for me to still serve the interest of the whole students again.
What do you want to change or improve in your college?
I believe that student communities are only successful if they take everyones ideas and opinions on board, so I would love to implement everyone’s ideas. I would like to create collaborations with other campuses and different Universities for blogs and student initiatives. Provide a conducive environment for students to start different initiatives in Entrepreneurial skills by providing them public relations support and finding them partners. Organise informal events with other colleges so that students do not only get to learn academics but also their life experiences.I would also like to create a program called “Personality of the week” where Staffs and students will be invited every week, so as to share their life experiences with everyone for us all to learn from it.
Since when have you been nursing your political ambition?
I have been nursing my political ambition right from my secondary school days when I was the Social prefect.
Who is your role model?
I have role models,for now my role models are Barrack Obama(Former President of the United state of America) and Dr Olusegun Abayomi Mimiko(Former governor of Ondo state)
Any message for people out there?
My message is directed to my fellow COMSSSITES. I have always served the interest of the students right from on set and I have always been there for you all every time. I will be glad if you all come out on election day to vote for ITESIWAJU and give me the chance to serve you and to speak for you all.
I promise you all today that if I’m been giving the chance to serve as the College P.R.O.
Your struggle will be my struggle!
Your adversities will be my adversities!
Your joy will be my joy!
At all time, I will work for you.
I will work for you! Thanks.
