Thousands of students of the University of Ghana will tomorrow Friday, April 12, 2019 go to the polls to elect a new executive body for its Students Representative Council.
The election was originally scheduled to come off on Wednesday April 10 but was rescheduled for Friday April 12 by the Electoral Commission after series of legal actions against it.
Ahead of the election, some have predicted that the turnout will be at a record low, considering the seeming rush in the activities of the Electoral Commission.

Mr. Amofa mentioned that two security personnel will be stationed to every polling station.

“We have been informed about the elections and we are ready in terms of security…there will be two security officers at the polling stations but there will be standby security for any movement,” Mr. Amofa told UniversNews
