Some delegates at this year’s National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) congress have expressed their frustrations over the delays in the commencement of elections at the NUGS Congress.
The 54th annual non-residential congress was advertised to start at 9:00am today, Monday 3rd May, 2021.
However, after more than 7 hours, the electoral process has still not commenced.
In an interaction with some delegates, they expressed their outmost disgust at the turn of events.
The situation has led to some degelates having to leave the premises hoping to return as and when the electoral process begins. Meanwhile some aspirants have ceased this opportunity to campaign.
“There must be that understanding that the abrupt announcement of a one day congress comes with it’s own frustrations and the tendency that things will delay as compared to a three days congress if you would have a lot of time to plan and all but then the delay presents some of us aspirants an opportunity to meet people that we have not met already so in as much as we might run into the night for the elections, there is also that bit of advantage where you will meet people you’ve not met before,” a NUGS General Secretary aspirant, Julius Kwame Anthony said.
