Just like yesterday when Akinkunmi Iromini was elected as FILSU President for the 2020 administration. The election was described as one of the best and transparent in the history of the union.
The general election of the Federation of Iwoland Students’ Union (FILSU) that brought in Senator Iromini as a president was conducted on 31st December 2019 at the Palace of Oluwo. The presidential seat was contested by three experienced young men; Akinkunmi Ismail Iromini, Hammed Ridwan Akinkunmi and Adewale Olalekan Ridwan.
Akinkunmi Iromini polled 248 votes to emerge winner of the election. Hammed Ridwan ADMIN of LAUTECH came second with 178 votes while Adewale Olalekan known as Sir Leacon came third with 174 votes.
With that, Akinkunmi Iromini took the baton of the leadership from Abdullahi Afees popularly called As-Sulton who was the outgoing president of FILSU 2019. Sentiments apart, the administration can boast of achievements made during its tenure. Many achievements were recorded and projects were executed.
Before being elected as the President of the union, Iromini held different FILSU positions among them are;
