*UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF MANAGEMENT STUDIES CONCERNED STUDENTS HIGHLIGHTS*
*Let me take this opportunity to greet our cherished readers, and then of course, all the good people and students of the university college of management studies (UCOMS) community*
Undoubtedly, UCOMS as a UNIVERSITY is one of the most elitist society in Ghana , with over 99% of its population having acquired education, at least to some appreciable level. *And that is why a place called a University is the lense of the future*
therefore , our actions do matter, especially with *student governance and student leadership*
This leads me to the issues I want to touch on.
To start with, our student union in the last few YEARS , has not been a very good spectacle to behold. The union has been marred with high levels of *mediocrity, deceit and political jingoism*
And the closest evidence of mediocrity is the conscious stance against *political correctness, constitutionalism , fairness and equity*. To make some few extensions there would soon be Elections and the whole processes of the Ec our Src president appointed for us is just a piece of laughable proceedings and a comic relief , Honestly to anyone who gets hold of a post-mortem of their *processes , proceedings and performances*.
*Right from their appointment which was constitutionally suppose to be from the beginning of the semister and not the end of semester*
*To how the EC committee were imposed on parliamentarians and approved without proper scrutiny*
*To their choice of vetting committee which the students vehemently opposed for its restructuring*
*To it attempt of imposing a conspiracy E- voting system on our student community*
*To the alleged alliance of some members of Ec committee with some of the incumbent SRC executives to machinate affairs in favor of their preferred candidate*
*To not considering time restraints in quickly and transparently publishing vetting results and introducing a National EC , commencing Ballot paper printing arrangements with assured security since election is on Saturday*
*To alleged Conspiracy with the Judiciary council to disqualify a candidate unconstitutionally*
*The Ec stooping soo low for external influence to prevent candidates who have successfully gone through vetting from reading their manifesto etc*
This are minor details of the many concerns been raised by we the students . Most of the things listed above were Plans far advanced by a clique of people ayeekooo!!!! The Alleged plan to Rig the up-coming Elections is only a dream .
We can tell you on authority that No one should attempt of Rigging this election because we would vehemently resist the perpetrators of this act , you cant take undue advantage of us the student.
Again the E- Voting system was never agreed on or approved by the Aspirants and students therefo no one have no moral grounds of bringing that conspiracy project We bet you it would be a complete waste of our time and resources.
Infact This otherwise soo called good initiative also lacked a bit of common sense. Honestly, there was no way someone could sit down and introduce a program without piloting the program with established long-term monitoring and evaluation justifying its response by Aspirants and students, given the time constraints.
Again , the internal EC office should know already and do us the honors by bringing an external National Ec to conduct the elections and stop all the back and forth , We say without apologies that those pranks won’t work .
An internal Ec is expected to be autonomous and not recieve directives for any one, not even our incumbent executives.
*Mr President’s EC committee* Help students with urgent needs and as well take credit for it than doing things that would trigger the emotions of thousands of us elite students.
Anyway,since it is our money and we are bearing the financial burden we have the right to be made aware of our External EC with immediate effect , where we are printing our ballot papers , its Tuesday but we are not seeing anything. Is there anything we should know? Just tell the truth!
*Increase in lazy approach to dealing with this is suspicious*
Allegedly what is been planned is only to play this schemes in other to Rig the elections And that’s how far their wisdom could take them , with alacrity we say this also lacked foresight because we are very vigilant and watching you closely .
Simple accounting and economic principles teaches us that we embark on fixed capital ventures having in mind long term benefits. All this current development suggests that the internal Ec is not applying best practices and we advice they act quickly for the elctions is Saturday and not next year.
*We as Concerned students are seeing all this machinations and we know And we promise to fight to the end not leaving any stone unturned*
*OUR SRC PRESIDENT SHOULD BOW DOWN HIS HEAD IN SHAME BECAUSE HE HAS ALLOWED ALL THIS TO HAPPEN UNDER HIS ADMINISTRATION*
*We want a Free and Fair Election*
*EC ACT NOW FOR WE THE STUDENTS OF UCOMS ARE NOT READY FOR SURPRISES*
