2016 Presidential elections

 The 2016 NSS Elections was the 11th Annual Elections held by the International Office of the University.  The elections was a contest between Comrade Jerry Sambe and Comrade Ibrahim Lawal, this election was a battle on experience as Jerry Sambe who had never served in the NSS was contesting against Ibrahim Lawal who had served under the controversial yet productive Samuel Omale administration.                                                                                                          President Madaka Farouk, the Incumbent President declined to run for a Second Term. 

Riding on the Successes of his predecessor, the Madaka Administration left a high standing legacy for coming administrations to follow, it was quite uncertain if President Madaka made a public endorsement or not.
