Vincent Owusu Appiah and Albert Kobina Yeboah, President and vice respectively (both L300) recorded a landslide victory in the University of Ghana Nursing Students Association (UGHANSA) 2015 elections held on Monday, April 13, 2015, beating their main contenders; Team Prince. The election was fiercely contested by the two sides, making it difficult for observers to make convincing predictions on the possible outcome of the election as each team had a special advantage over the other. Vincent and his vice have both served as chief justice and speaker of GA for the association respectively and were very instrumental in resolving the electoral dispute that ensued from last year’s election. Prince on the other hand, has served as a GA member for two terms and his running mate Emmanuel Adu-Osei, coming from level 200, brought on board a potentially fair representation.
Running for other portfolios were Victoria Osei Nyarko for General Secretary, Hennery Nartey aka Honourable Nartey for Treasurer and the Organizing Secretary’s slot which was also fiercely contested by Jonas Annor Yeboah and Kumi Kyere Duodu aka KKD
The whole electoral process was peaceful and successful except for the usual low voter turnout which is a common phenomenon in university of Ghana campus elections. At the close of polls, the electoral commissioner, Richard, Nana Boakoh declared the results as follows:
Total vote cast 287
Team Vincent 193 votes (68.44%)
Team Prince 89 votes (31.56%)
Victoria Osei Nyarko 261 votes (93.88%)
Hennery Nartey 268 votes (96.40%)
Jonas Annor Yeboah 170 votes (60.50%)
Kumi Kyere Doudu 111 votes (39.50%)
Ugfile.com will like to wish the elected executives the very best and hope they deliver on their promises to serve the interest of students.
