The Senior Hall Tutor of the Alexander Adum Kwapong Hall at the University of Ghana, Dr. Seth D. Boateng has banned five (5) aspirants from further participating in the hall’s 2021 Junior Common Room elections.
These aspirants include Ms. Nana Yaa Gyamfi, Mr. Kelvin Osae Quansah, Pierretta Alaglo, Ms. Randa Grace Ekuban, and Mr. King George O Amuaben.
A letter signed by Dr. Seth D. Boateng on Wednesday, July 28, 2021, indicated that the above students lost their credibility as JCR aspirants for subjecting the whole Alexander Adum Kwapong Hall electoral process to legal suits, counter-suits, and injunctions at the JCR and SRC legal departments resulting in the hall’s inability to conduct in 2021 elections as scheduled.
The letter further stated that the actions of these five aspirants have “caused too much trauma and discomfort at the JCR Electoral Commission and the entire JCR parliament to the extent that it is becoming unattractive for responsible students of the hall to take up positions of members of parliament and electoral commissioners”.
The letter added that the ban will “ensure the Alexander Adum Kwapong Hall conduct the 2021 elections devoid of unnecessary suits, countersuits, accusations, counter-accusations, injunctions and petitions intentionally designed to create an unconducive atmosphere for a peaceful conduct of the Electoral commissioner’s work and Parliamentary activities of the Hall”
The banned aspirants were warned that their residency would be revoked, should they flout the directive from the Senior Hall Tutor.
Mr. Kelvin Osae Quansah and Ms. Nana Yaa Gyamfi were both vying for the Presidential and Vice Presidential Office respectively.
Pierretta Alaglo was hoping to be elected as the Financial Secretary of the Hall, Ms. Randa Grace Ekuban for Organizing Secretary, and Mr. King George O Amuaben for Sports Secretary.
