While campaigning for the position, Ogunga had promised to devote attention to the welfare of Ondo students if elected.

“As part of my plans for vying for this Office, it is expedient that I must mention that Academics of our student shall be of utmost importance to us. It is important to state that the Political objective for the Association is education for liberation.”

“Our plans cut across a well-defined system to ensure smooth running and effective participation in competitions, Career Advancement programs and seminars amongst others.

“It is said that welfarism of the members of any Association is its main purpose for existence, and this is rightly provided for Section 8(1)(b) of the NAOSS Constitution. We shall continue to ensure the betterment and welfarism of all NAOSSITES via the prompt payment of bursaries when due amongst others.

“While we recognize that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, we have carefully mapped a social activity plan for NAOSS which is not limited to the NAOSS.

“We are equally working on the provision of a better sporting facility system and igniting the spirit of sportsmanship amongst our students. As a lover of sport and one who was an active member of the Chess Club at the University of Benin, I am not oblivious of the great role sport plays in every Association,” she had said.
