SRC Excellence Awards Nominations, Fairness or The Usual Bias
The Student Representative Council have released names of students who have been according to the SRC “duly nominated” for this year’s SRC Excellence Awards.
The awards is an event held by the student body to honor students who have distinguished themselves in various ways on or outside the walls of the university within the course of the Academic year.
The categories for this years awards includes but not limited to The Most Influential Student Of The Year, Male and Female Sports personality of the year, Committee head of the year, Writer of the Year, Student Journalist Of The Year, JCR president of the year and many more.
Meanwhile some students are of the view that many deserving students have not been included even though a lot of people claim to have nominated them.
Not even a single student journalist form the outfit of your Most Reliable Campus News website – LegonConnect is part of the released list of nominated students though a number of students claimed to have nominated Gabriel Opare and Kwaku Asante in the Student Journalist of the year category. This once again brings to question the criteria used in compiling the list. Whether the list truly is a reflection of the peoples choice or not.
Of particular mention is Kwaku Asante who has been a very vociferous critic of the current SRC administration which many think may have contributed to his exclusion. Kwaku Asante has been held before the SRC disciplinary committee of the SRC on a number of occasions for the mere fact that he reported on issues which pointed out the odds within the Esinam led SRC.
SRC awards just like other awards programs that involve public nomination, is usually accused of bias. The SRC excellence awards particularly has been criticized greatly over the years for the glaring partiality mostly exhibited during the nominations and awards ceremonies. Usually, individuals who have openly and objectively criticized the various administrations have been exempted, and this year’s edition is no exception.
It is unclear when this awards ceremony will be held this year but trust LegonConnect to follow up and bring our cherish readers up to speed with happenings with regards to this.
