The election heat is soon about to be cooled off as the long-awaited vetting of the SRC aspirants is scheduled to take place today exactly 4 pm. Let’s not forget how salient and essential the vetting is. It’s for this reason why I’ve taken it upon myself to enlighten you about how the vetting can influence your voting.
So then, what’s vetting? Vetting is the process of performing a background check on someone before offering them a particular office. Without mincing words, we all know that the particular office is in linkage to the SRC.
* How competent is the candidate you espouse?
* How vocal is he?
* Can he really advocate for the student’s interest?
* How firm and impregnable can your candidate stand for what is right, just and honest?
* Do you have a candidate you support ?
If yes, how well do you know him? For the sector of the student populace, who has decided not to vote, digest the saying made by George Jean Nathan,” Bad officials are elected by good citizens”. And if you don’t vote, why complain? Voting is not only our right, but it’s also our power. A power we are transferring to any of the aspirants to govern us and when things do not govern us and when things fall apart, we can hold them responsible. Therefore, let’s not relent in attending the vetting process. Abraham Lincoln once said, “Be sure to put your feet in the right place, then stand firm. To stand right in the right path is to know your candidate, to stand firm, is to vote.
Come witness the vetting in which student leaders who believe it’s time to build, to defy the odds and be on a rescue mission, to get the student interest served, are going to be vetted.
