It appears to be that interim executives of the University of Ghana Students Representative Council have no intention to make way for the democratic election of leaders to handle the affairs of students for the 2020/2021 academic year.

Following the inability of the previous administration, led by Isaac Agyemang, to hold an election due to the closure of schools, Article 25(7) of the SRC constitution was invoked and Kwame-Ntow Fianko, JCR President of the Akuafo Hall was appointed to lead students of the University.

With school now in session, many, especially those who concern themselves with student politics have been demanding an election.

But  Ag. Legal Advisor of the SRC, Nana Kwesi Essuman Pocco says that the Kwame-Amo Ntow-Fianko plans to rather hand-over power after a year.

According to Essuman Pocco, the modular system, which is being operated by the University, has affected the timeline for the election.

“Ordinarily, you realize that the EC would have opened nomination for people to apply to run by the fifth of the second semester. As we speak, in one academic year, we have two different second semesters, one for level 100 & 400 and then for Level 200 & 300. The timeline has been affected as I said, so we have to ensure that we hand over power at the time, at least, at the time these interim executive officers took over power so that we don’t have that situation occur again,” Nana Kwesi Essuman Pocco said on Campus Exclusive.

Vanessa Nana Ofosua Okobuor, a former Deputy Speaker of the UGSRC General Assembly, however, does not agree with Nana Essuman Pocco.

She says that the first and fourth-year students can be allowed to cast their ballot as they are already on campus.

She added that level 200s and 300s could also be allowed to vote when they report back on campus.

“There are no excuses. There are students on campus and the constitution is clear on exactly what to do. They [interim executives] could start the process of an election. We could have Level 100 & 400 have an election before revision week and then when the Level 200 & 300 come to campus, they can also have their election,” she said.
