The Electoral Commissioner of the University of Ghana SRC Rexford Opare has debunked allegations that suggest SRC president hopeful Joseph Agyekum will be disqualified from the race due to the resignation of his vice presidential candidate Rashida Jeduah.
Joseph Agyekum earlier circulated a message on social media that he had received information from the Electoral Commission of a possible disqualification from the race. According to him, the EC says his running mate Rashida Jeduah has written a letter to the Commission withdrawing from the race as his vice president.
In the circular, Mr. Joseph accused his opponents Team Shadrack of masterminding the defection “I don’t understand why these teams keep on intimidating the girl rather than encouraging” he said.
Speaking to Univers News, the embittered SRC aspirant threatened to file a law suit against the Electoral Commission if they fail to give him a chance to present to them another running mate even though he is yet to receive any official document from the office of the Electoral Commissioner concerning this issue.
However, in an interview with Univers News, the Electoral
Commissioner of the UGSRC, Rexford Opare denied receiving any resignation letter from Ms. Jeduah and allegations of an imminent disqualification.
