#UGDecides: ‘I resigned days before Judicial Board sacked SRC ECs’ – Boaz Twumasi

- -


Former second Deputy Electoral Commissioner for the University of Ghana Students’ Representative Council (UG SRC), Boaz Asare-Baah Twumasi said he has resigned days before the Judicial Board sacked SRC ECs.

In a letter dated December 18, 2021, and addressed to the Chairman of EXECOM, he cited a lack of coordination between SRC EC Chairperson Henry Ackon, first Deputy EC Bright Siaw and himself.

Mr Twumasi remarked on inconclusive key decisions among the three Electoral Commissioners as he described acts done without his consent as contemptuous.

“There were several occasions where the chairperson and the first deputy did things in the name of the Electoral Commission without hearing my opinion as a member of the commission.

Some of such acts are reflective in the purported declaration of the final results with a forged signature of myself (on two different occasions), the declaration of the online results in my absence, and the release of a ‘statement from the electoral commission’ which disobeys the Judicial Board’s ruling, just to mention a few,” part of the resignation letter reads.

He added that “I know this may find you in an unfortunate circumstance but I also hope I was able to deliver to the best interest of the SRC as well,” while bidding farewell to the EC Chairperson and 1st Deputy.

It would be recalled that the Judicial Board sacked the three Electoral Commissioners following their resolution, not to re-run fresh elections for level 200 & 300 residents of Mensah Sarbah Hall and Akuafo Halls in consonance with the Court ruling on December 10, 2021.

According to the Chief Justice, Regina Apaloo, the actions of the Commissioners constitute ‘willful’ disobedience of the orders of the Court and gross disregard of the authority of the board.
