The Association of Faculty of Arts Students’ Council of Presidents and Secretaries (CPS) has postponed its election and the inauguration of its new executive members until after the faculty elections next session.

The election and inauguration which had been earlier scheduled to hold today, Monday, July 3, 2023 at the Mike Okiro e-learning centre was postponed as a result of the issues surrounding the adoption of the reviewed AFAS constitution and some of its provisions.

According to the Chairman of the CPS who is also the President of the department of European studies, Temitope Bankole, this “supposed new constitution” has been annulled by the Dean of Students’ Affairs.

He added that the Dean has also given the directive that election of new executive council of the association should be conducted within the space of two weeks, effective from today.

Bankole disclosed that the CPS had earlier screened the people nominated for the electoral committee as it is part of their duties stipulated in the “old constitution”, only for the FLC to put them on hold because of the amendment of the constitution which scrapped the office of the CPS. However, the old constitution has been retained, following the council’s consultation with the Staff Adviser, so, the new electoral committee will be constituted by the CPS for the upcoming AFAS election in accordance with the Article 13 (iii) of AFAS constitution.

After the AFAS election, the Chairman concluded, the date for the CPS Handover will be communicated.
