Host - Good evening everyone, Welcome to the Kafu Platform Exclusive Interview, I'm your host for today Godfather. We have our guest already in the building, Ogunbanjo Oluwatobiloba Aka Barack O Pay'ne. The 51st and the Last AGS of  FSSSA 2011/2012 session. 

Its an honor to have you here sir. Can We meet you Sir? 

Opay'ne - It's a rare privilege to be interviewed in a room filled with intellectual social engineers. My Name is Ogunbanjo 'Tobiloba Anuoluwapo often called Barrack Opay'ne or Oizah. Assistant General Secretary, Faculty of the Social Sciences Students' Association (FSSSA) 2011/2012 Academic Session. Thank you.

Host - Can You tell Us about your Family Background Sir? 

Opay'ne - I'm the first child of the Ogunbanjos. Thank you.

Host - Why University of Ibadan for your Undergraduate Study? 

Opay'ne - U.I as we apparently is the first and still the best (tho we have our shortcomings) and the products of the institution are of premier standard. 

So, I just wanted to belong to the Premier fraternity that was why I chose U.I and as God will have it, the dream came true.  Thank you.

Host - How was life as an Undergraduate? How do you balance Academics and Social life? 

Opay'ne - It was all fun and maximally utilized

Social life and academics are two things that should go together without one disturbing the other because its a university that prepares one before the university of life as it were.

For me then, after my classes I go back to my hall, do as many aro as possible, play as much as possible, make as many friends as possible, go to Spices, Abe-Igi, and if party dey at Dome, E Bevande turn up but when Exam knocks give it your all, Faculty of Agric LLT and SLT to the rescue and sometimes KDL. 

This is because all can't be learnt in the Classroom. Thank you.

Wow that's cool! As the Former AGS, What motivated you to come out?

I'm this energetic and vocal person that likes speaking on behalf of others even when not holding a post

So it happened then that some of my senior colleagues in ZIK that were in Social Sciences started noticing me and called me that why don't I run for the post of the Assistant General Secretary.

Though before that time, I had the intention of running for post (but don't know which)

So I ran with 3 other opponents, 2 ladies and a guy and I had 157, Second 125, Third 92 then 4th 88 and I was announced winner.

Tho it was 15 minutes to the end of my GES 104 exam that day, August 11, 2011 precisely. Thank you.

Host - Do You have a Mentor then?

Sociology Department started mentorship for 100L students back then in my set. My lecturer mentor was Dr K.K Salami and Student Mentor were my roommates because I was the only 100L fresher in the room B44 ZIK Hall.

Who was the Lucky Girl then or Who were the lucky Girls? 

When I was FSSSA AGS, all Female Fsssaites were the lucky girls simply because they voted me for Efficiency 2011 Agenda and the agenda had to erect so having a lucky Girl will cause Ferhoodle and it won't help the Administration. 

They were all amazing and supportive. Hearty shoutout to them because they were the best. Thank you.

Who is now the present Babe? 

There is a present babe buh she's a lover of anonymity so permit me to grant her that. Thank you.

What brought about the zeal to go for Students' Union position? Was it because of your Popularity or what?
