The Hostel could not hold its maiden elections during last semester’s SRC/LNUGS/JCRC general elections as a result of an injunction sought by a group of law students in the hostel on the basis that the persons qualified to contest the elections as at that time did not have a Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA), a requirement in the university’s hand book that should be met before one would be qualified to contest in the University’s SRC/LNUGS/JCRC elections.
