The rally tagged “THE ARMY OF SLAYERS,” which was jointly organised by Sultan Bello hall and Queen Elizabeth hall held on Sunday, 19th January 2020 and it began their Hall week themed “THE ROYALS.” The rally was to create awareness among students on the dangers of cultism while charging them to brace themselves up and face their respective careers.
Honorable Gideon of Sultan Bello hall who spoke on the idea behind the rally said “it is a march against cultism.” “The aim of the rally is to fight against cultism. We are all coming together to fight against cultism.” He added. The Hall Mayor, Mr. Ogungbayi Paul, and the Hall Chairlady, Miss Grace, of Bello hall and Queens hall respectively reiterated on this fact as well. Residents of both halls, however, were dressed in regalia that were symbolic to what they propagate for: “the fight against cultism.”
The rally procession started from Mellanby hall, and moved to other halls-of-residence. There were various placards demonstrating why students need to stay away from cultism. Some of them included; “the Sultans and Queenites say no to cultism,” “the army slayers say no to Cultism,” and many more. Asides from this, there were also dances and performances from both halls which thrilled on-lookers in a bid to create the awareness.
