In the history of the University of Uyo, never has a communicator, equipped with the requisites to man the office of Director of Information in the institution’s Student Union Government occupied the venerated and grave office.
The newly elected Director of Information goes by the name Godwin Antai, popularly known as BAKAMAN.
He is a stock of the Department of Communication Art, adjudged by many to be the department with best set of lecturers.
Hitherto, football loving Bakaman, asides being a student, presents Sports on UniUyo FM, and his support for the Spanish Club ‘Barcelona’ must have inspired his nick name.
The lad understands that the availability or unavailability of information can cause harm as serious as death, especially in the student community.
When he set forth for his campaign, his motto was ‘One without Information is as good as dead, have information, and have Life’.
He is referred to here as ‘a square peg in a square hole’, and with him, the students of University of Uyo, through their votes, have indicated their determination to be alive, and be always informed!
