A third-year Law student of the University of Ghana Daniel Bekoe is challenging the legitimacy of the University of Ghana Student’s Representative Council [UG-SRC] Chief Justice, Mr. Gregory Asiedu of the swearing in of the UG SRC President elect Daniel Otting Awuah.
According to him, Article 47 (5) (a) of the SRC constitution clearly stipulates that the Chief Justice of the SRC should only act in that capacity if he still maintains his original position as a Chief Justice for any of the halls of residence.
Mr. Bekoe further argues that since Mr. Gregory Asiedu tenure in office as Chief Justice for Akuafo Hall came to an end on the 4th of May, he ceases to also officially act in the capacity as the Chief Justice for the SRC.
Speaking on Radio Univers’ Campus Exclusive on Monday, he further called on the out-going SRC President Esinam Seade to intervene and get an acting chief Justice in any of the halls of residence since the Swearing of the SRC executives by Mr. Gregory Asiedu will be a violation to the fundamental rules and the University of Ghana SRC Constitution.
“This is something that the constitution is mandating you to do and it’s not like whether you are experienced before you will be able to do this so it’s not dependent on your experience, if he has lost his seat, then the one who is supposed to replace him will come and continue with the duties, after that academic year, if he is going to be re-sworn in, that’s fine. And if you read the constitution, it’s clear that where the chief justice is absent or cannot or has vacated his office, the next person, the senior-most person will then do that, all those who were supposed to occupy that office have now ceased to hold office, the only two left are Mr. Emmanuel Opoku Twumwaa and Andoh Gyimah of Mensah sarbah hall and Commonwealth hall respectively”, he said.
