With barely 24hrs to the Regional elections of the New Patriotic Party(NPP) in the Ashanti Region, the Tertiary Students Confederacy(TESCON) have called for an audit in the voters album.
The student group says there is more than compelling evidence that all is not well with the election process in the Ashanti Region.
For a considerable period, Aspirants in the contest have made requests to the party regarding the voters album.
At an emergency press confab at the Catering rest house in Kumasi on Friday, May 27, 2022, the TESCON leaders claim the album to be used for the election tomorrow is not the names of the TESCON president whose documents were taken for the preparation of the album.
“Infact, after thorough scrutiny, 35 anomalies have been detected in their album, ie: many of the supposed delegates are not students of the said schools, some are past TESCON members who are no more in the school and others totally unknown to TESCON. Many ghost names are found in the album”.
“As we speak, we have received names of people who are not members of TESCON, some of which are nurses and former students.”
They alleged some unaccepted institutions found their way into the album with assigned delegates.
“Members of the media, the following institutions have emerged as unaccredited TESCON institutions but have found its way into the album with assigned delegates:
Newman College of Health
Kessben adum campus
Global college of aviation
Oxford School of Journalism
Ghana Baptist University college, Abuakwa.
However, Kumasi Nursing and Midwifery training college which they claim is accredited has been excluded, they said.
In conclusion they noted;
“Based on this we wholey reject the supposed delegates list, it is not credible, it is fraudulent and not a true representation of the TESCON. We request that those of our leaders of TESCON who have so far been meeting with aspirants, and based on the established convention since 2010 be reinstated as the delegates to the Regional conference come tomorrow, Saturday, 2022.
