A presidential candidate in the 2021 University of Ghana Students Representative Council election, Priscilla Asantewaa Ayeh, has urged her supporters not to be discouraged by the grade she was given following her appearance before the vetting committee of the Electoral Commission.
Priscilla Asantewaa Ayeh and her running mate, Henry Nii Adjiri Quarcoopome, were graded 63.69% by the Vetting Panel.
But in an interview with UniversNews, Ms. Ayeh rejected the grading.
She believes that her performance at the vetting deserved better marks.
Priscilla Ayeh says that the vetting results won’t affect her performance in the election, scheduled for 10th September 2021.
She said the vetting outcome will rather push her to work harded.
“We are not disqualified and we are still in the race. So all my supporters out there, this should not be a basis to put you down or discourage you from supporting us. Besides, vetting results don’t guarantee winning an election. I think there are some discrepancies somewhere. To all my supporters out there, this shouldn’t discourage anyone at all. We are going to push harder, we are going to work harder”
Priscilla Ayeh is the only female contending in the presidential race.
She is up against three others in the race.
The three are Ofosu Samuel Amos, Ayitta Felix Tawiah, and Asumadu Prince.
This year’s SRC election will be held using a hybrid format – online and on-site.
