Race to the Union Building: UGSRC 2020 Campaign is Officially Underway

By | December 22, 2019

LEGON – The 2020 UGSRC election campaign is officially underway, with many aspirants emerging to contest the positions of UGSRC President, Secretary and Treasurer.

Sampson Tagbor, Kwaku Acheampong, George Prince Sarpei, Ella Appiah Oppong and Alexander Oppong Kyekyeku, former JCR Vice President of Akuafo Hall, are some of the Presidential aspirants that have emerged as early frontrunners in the crowded field of Presidential aspirants, but there are more than ten aspirants vying for the position of UGSRC President for the 2020/21 academic year.

The list of General Secretary aspirants include Nervisa Oteng Ababio, who is a popular student of the Business School and resident of Legon Hall, Priscilla Aboabire, Millicent Quansah and Jemima Ayettey Yeboah, colloquially known as Lady Jay. 

Emmanuel Achio is also an aspirant for the Treasurer position, but his status as the only aspirant for Treasurer is not a state of affairs that is going to last for so long. Reports have it that former aspirant for the Presidency of the Business House Junior Common Room, Nicholas Nii Armah, popularly known as Banana, is planning to enter the race early next year. Should he enter the race as the reports and rumours have it, he will be the clear frontrunner in the race for who becomes the next UGSRC Treasurer, given his status as an already popular candidate as well as the strong support he enjoys from the Business School, a critical voting bloc when it comes to UGSRC elections. 

Though the elections to elect the next crop of executives for the University of Ghana Students’ Representative Council is still months away, the aspirants will spend the time from now until the election day planning their various campaigns and touring the various halls of residence and lecture rooms when school reopens in an attempt to position themselves as potential leaders to steer the affairs of the UGSRC for the 2020/21 academic year. Legon Connect will provide you with all you need to know about the upcoming elections and keep you up to date with each move of the various aspirants.
