Bestman Azuonwu
SUGPresident, Rivers State University.


Calm, easygoing and determined Bestman Azuonwu was born on Monday,the 4th day of February, 1991 to the family of Rev. & Mrs Godwin Azuonwu in Umuokwu, Egbeke in Etche local Government Area of Rivers State. He is the second child and the second son in the family of seven (7) children.

Young Bestman Azuonwu started his Primary School education at Community Primary school,Egbeke,( primary 1&2), St.Peters Primary school, Bayelsa State(primary 2&3) and back to Community Primary School (3&5) where he completed his elementary school and obtained his first school leaving certificate in 2003.
As a young man with the burning desire of furthering his education, he proceeded to Government Secondary School, Okehi in Etche. While in Junior Secondary School 3 (jss 3), his leadership traits began to be up for reckoning in the course of his secondary education as he was appointed leader, " Press club".
In 2006, he proceeded to Community Secondary School, Nkpolu, Mile 3, Portharcourt.
While in SS 1, he joined the Arts Students Association of Nigeria." ASAN" which helped to sharpen his political calculation and students Unionism.He later went to Victory High School, Wimpey, where he obtained his WAEC, graduating as the best student of that year in the school.
In 2011, Bestman Azuonwu was admitted into the Rivers State polytechnic, Bori( now kenule Beeson Saro Wiwa Polytechnic) to study Mass communication after a brief stint with media practice which saw him nickname " The Reporter". Not satisfied with his level of education, he proceeded to the Rivers State University of Science and Technology( Now Rivers State university) to study Mass communication. While in his first year, he contested for Class Representative barely two months in the University and won massively to the surprise of many because he looks very small and unassuming. In the same year, he was appointed a Provost into the executive council of Mass communication Students Association " MACOSA" .He was later elected Treasurer in the faculty of management sciences students Association"FAMSSA".
Today, Bestman Azuonwu is the first person that has served in the department, Faculty and Students Union Government in less than two  years.

In his efforts in contributing positively to the society at large, he embarked on an iconic project that redefined what a student can do and setting the right example for his colleagues, he founded THE UNIQUE MINDS OUTREACH, an organization whose aim is anchored on human development The organization gave out Four hundred thousand Naira (400,000.00) (100,00 each) to 4 students for generating  Business Ideas.
Bestman Azuonwu played a pioneering role in students Unionism leading to many students especially Mass communication Students and faculty of management sciences students occupying various leadership positions in the school. His role in students Unionism has been recognized and applauded by stakeholders within and beyond the shores of the university.
During the students Union Government Election in 2017, he declared his interest to run for the President of all Aluta forces in the School, this declaration caused rancour and disaffection among those who have earlier identified with him, and different machineries were planted to frustrate his ambition of becoming the SUG President. This was because according to them, he got no style, he is financially crippled and not fit to govern. He was once quoted as saying "Go tell them, I have not failed any election with God on my side"...this was his reply to them.
When the campaign started, he was embarrassed thrice publicly for refusing to step down and on the three occasions, he always stated "God is leading me somewhere, is either you follow us or you lose because with students on my side ,we shall Win"...
Determined to succeed, he identified with the students in different ways, this earned him the tag "Bestman for the Job". This statement became his campaign slogan.
This jolly good chap, simple and unassuming, humble to a fault continued peaceful,door to door campaign, convincing and converting souls to vote for him with his plans clearly stated, his style of campaigning confused many because according to them, "the more you look, the less you see". Many people were not sure of his victory at the polls because of the negative campaigns, cheap blackmail and propaganda, baseless petitions all aimed at stopping him, but in all he always encouraged his supporters and the entire students community to keep calm. He abides in the consciousness of his friends and record keepers as a builder of unity bridges.
Like a tree solidly rooted in the earth, he holds an unshakeable belief in oneness and brotherhood, not only to the students community and his home state, Rivers State but of our great Nation, Nigeria. These are some of the personal and public testimonies that enabled him warm a path into the heart of his friends and students of the Rivers State University,t hat was why on Friday 23rdJune, 2017, over twenty five thousand Students of the University trooped out in their numbers to vote for Bestman Azuonwu overwhelmingly as the new Students Union Government President.
