The Former Chief Justice of the Legon wing of the Graduate Students Association of Ghana, Sylvester Nyamekye has recused himself from the hearing of the petition filed by some members challenging the results of the GRASAG-Legon election held on Wednesday 26th April citing an attempt to compromise him by the president of the association Mr. Asafo Adjei as the reason.
Speaking to Radio Univers’ Maxwell Amoofia, Mr. Nyamekye stated that even ‘’before we constituted the court, the president of GRASAG who is in the person of Asafo Adjei called me that he wanted to have a meeting with me, and so I obliged him. I got here in the evening, we met in front of the guest house’’. Further adding that Mr. Asafo Adjei, the current president of the association told him that ‘’the petitioners did not have a case, trying to influence me, I said no.’’
This comes on the back of the adjournment of the hearing by the GRASAG court to allow the senate more time to properly constitute the Judicial Committee which had already started hearing the case.
Mr. Nyamekye went on to allege that Mr. Asafo Adjei told him that ‘he had an interest and his interest was that he was going for national election, GRASAG national election and he wanted 30 votes from University of Ghana GRASAG, and then that interest can only be served by one Ato Brown who has won the election’’ and so wanted him to dismiss the petition to which he declined after which Mr. Asafo Adjei has been trying to get him off the case to which he has evidence to.

GRASAG Legon went to the polls on 26th April, 2017 electing Mr. Ato Brown and others to spearhead the association for the next academic year but the outcome of the polls has been challenged in the GRASAG court on 11 grounds to which a hearing has already commenced with two adjournments..
