Student vows to give GH¢50k to anyone who can prove the credibility of 2022 NUGS elections

Daniel Owusu Baffoe, a student at Wisconsin International University College and a member of the National Union of Ghana Students, has issued a press statement questioning the legitimacy of the NUGS’ annual delegates congress, which just ended. The statement claimed that “the entire 2022 annual delegates conference of NUGS was plagued with illegality.” Just recently, this same student filed an action before the Accra High Court, challenging the legality of Mr. Kwesi Atuahene, Mr. Dennis Appiah Larbi-Ampofo, and some others as elected officers of NUGS. In the press statement issued on Saturday, April 16, 2022, he sought to give a blow-by-blow account of every step of the electoral process in his attempt to discredit the entire electoral process.
Among the things he tackled, was the fact that the elections were conducted without a voters’ register and hence was ready to pay a sum of Ghc50,000 to anyone who would be able to provide the voters’ Register which was used for the elections. Mr. Owusu further argued that every honest student is aware of the illegal NUGS elections which have existed for the past 10 years. He has as well accused the 54th President of NUGS, Mr. Yiadom Boakye of walking illegality since he openly and blatantly disregarded the orders of the Judicial Board to ensure a voters’ Register is available before the elections could be organized. In affirming his accusations, he disclosed that in the full glare of the public, YB as affectionately called refused to take writs from a bailiff of the Accra High Court.
“I was not surprised when I heard the lawless President, Yiadom Boakye quoting portions of the NUGS Constitution to dignify himself when it went viral that, there has been an injunction on the NUGS handing over and swearing-in ceremony. Indeed, he affirmed to the whole world, how he is walking illegality when in the full glare of the general public, he refused to take the court processes that were served on him on April 14, 2022.”, he said. He described the handing over ceremony as unconstitutional due to the following reasons: 1. Article 24(e)(v) of the NUGS Constitution requires the handing over to be held in September Instead of April. 2. The person who swore the incoming executives into power, could not do so. He has therefore vowed to pursue the matter till it gets to its logical conclusion. “In sum, in so far as Article 2(c) of the 2019 NUGS is concerned, or even unless proven otherwise by a court of competent jurisdiction, Dennis Appiah Larbi-Ampofo is not the President-elect,d and the so-called swearing-in ceremony which ushered him in as the President of NUGS is non-existent, null, void and of no effect.”, he said.
