2. Appiah Rebecca: 72%
As it stands now all the aspirants have been cleared to actively start campaigning and lobbying for votes. Now back to Samuel Sesah, generally there is competition among all aspirants for the various positions but that of the SRC President is a close contest each year.
Samuel Sesah topping the vetting is a clear message out there to the other aspirants and the student body they need to watch out for him.
Something small we gathered about Samuel Sesah indicates he was the Regional SRC President of the Greater Accra Regional Students’ Representative Council back in his days at Accra Academy.
Samuel Sesah was a local SRC Secretary before aspiring to be the 31st Regional President of GARSRC from 2015-2016 academic year. He was a member of the Accra Academy Cadet Corps and the Secretary as well.
At the Regional SRC, he handed over as one of President’s with the most successful administrations in the history of the Regional SRC.
He achieved all the promises he made to his constituents during his campaign at the time. These includes:
1) Resolve all stakeholder(s) contention and bring them under one umbrella for the prosperity of the Council, by putting the students first in all decisions.”Therefore, maintaining serene and strong stakeholder relationship.”
2) Produce a magazine as a publicity strategy. From several advice from stakeholders, he produced a website, through the efforts of his editorial team. This was considered due to the cost effectiveness of the project and it’s other benefits as compared to the magazine among other things he accomplished together with his team.
In his era, he was able to resolve a contention between stakeholders of the GARSRC, and brought all of them together to champion the cause of the council, after 4 months of abeyance.
He created for the first time, an executive arm of in the council which would search, harness, and build the talent of members of the council, and the entire second cycle populace in the greater Accra Region – Literary Group Executive Committee (LIGEC)
He reinstituted the Editorial Board of the council after 15years, to build a website for the council as a publicity platform and strategically placed communication between the council and the leadership on the same pedestal.
As a result of his intensive Zonal Orientation Initiative, his congress recorded one of the second highest attendance after 2012, in the history of the Council.
He is a smart, resilient, committed leader with a loving heart for the students he leads. He is a team player.
He demonstrated this by sponsoring his colleague executives from Accra Academy to the Congress that elected him, at the time when management of his alma mater had refused to sponsor their capitation.
Sesah, goes all out for students. He was loved by all stakeholders for his humility, listening ears, resilience and wise decision making to favour the students he leads.
Now is this the first time he has topped his vetting? The answer is no. He topped the Regional SRC vetting and he delivered on the job.
We at Campusradar feel this is a young man with a lot of experience coming to the job. Will he deliver when voted for? I think you need to follow his work as former President of SCISA and you would have more reason to endorse his candidature.
PGM:Biggest Story-So many unanswered questions.Where is the EC?
Will Valley View University Techiman Campus go on a run-off for the seat of the Presidency?
After going through a long day of voting to elect leaders for VALLEY VIEW UNIVERSITY TECHIMAN CAMPUS SRC, the EC had not been able to declare the winner after 48hours though the winner beat his opponent by three votes.
In the bigger story, the alleged defected team who got 177 votes had called the EC not to declare the winner his opponent in the person of HON. AKURUGU PAUL because he feels there were some irregularities that unfortunately happened doing the election, according to HON. EZEKIEL TETTEH’S campaign manager by name MR. ABOAGYE AMPONSAH, he said, there was some irregularities during the election and to him that have affected his candidate and they are on the move that the right thing need to be done, he continue to say.. IP
“The total turnout of voters per the EC chairperson was 367. My candidate got 177 votes, our opponent got 179 on the first count and he later got 180 with the 2nd counting, 7 were rejected votes if you sum them up is 364. So where are the remaining 3? That is a question to the EC chair.
The EC again closed before the actual time that is 5 preventing about 10 of the students from voting. ”
Some voters also complained of having a ballot paper already voted. “There are a lot of questions the EC need to answer until they do so we won’t accept any results so if they don’t provide it. We won’t accept it’’.
After we also spoke to Mr. AKURUGU PAUL who got the highest vote, and was to be declared a winner and he said; though it is almost 48 hours after the election and still the EC have not yet declared me as the winner, which we all know I am the winner, whatever constrains my opponent and his team have with the election or the credibility of the EC can’t change the fact that I won but I and my fraternity are still waiting patiently on the final verdicts of the EC and the faculty advisers, so for now I am just keeping my fingers crossed and if I have to say anything it will be after the final verdict of the EC.
We had the opportunity to also speak to the EC in the person of Madam NNAAH BINTU ALHASSAN, and she made it known that, she has nothings to say until her committee together with some of the faculties advisers of the University had sat to trash out some issues on board in order for the two Presidential candidates get some level of understanding before she can address the public, she also promised to talk to us after everything is finally over.
Campusradar will give you all the update of the story.
