UG Polls: Fancy Gadam’s Candidate Kicked Out of Presidential Race


After a few misfortunes, the 2018 University of Ghana Student’s Representative Council (UG SRC) races at last fell off, Monday, and saw Ewura Karim, a presidential applicant who got an underwriting from performer, Fancy Gadam, lose nearby some different competitors.

Before the decisions, Fancy Gadam recorded a video of himself asking understudies of the head college to cast their votes for Ewura Karim.

Be that as it may, in what had all the earmarks of being an acutely challenged race, Karim put third as he surveyed 1236 votes speaking to 20.98%.

Different hopefuls, Derrick Schandorf Ayirebi-Acquah surveyed 317 votes speaking to 5.30%; while Kingsley Adu-Otchere surveyed 330 votes speaking to 5.6%.

None of the hopefuls had the required half + 1 and according to the constitution of the SRC, there would be an overflow between Clement Bofa-Oppong and Sylvester Amoako who bested the surveys.

Forgiving Oppong and his running mate, Kwaku Afful Appiah surveyed 2174 votes speaking to 36.90% while Sylvester Amoako and his running mate, Adom Anorkwah surveyed 1834 votes speaking to 31.13%.

The date for the overflow will be imparted by the Electoral Commissioner on a later date.

In the interim, Cornelia Djordjormey and Smith Dumenyo are General Secretary and Treasurer choose of the UG SRC individually.

While Mr. Dumenyo run unopposed, Ms. Djordjormey won against Sophia Serwaa Abena Akoto. Djordjormer surveyed 3568 votes though Ms Akoto surveyed 2314 votes.
