Henry Nii Adjiri Quarcoopome and Priscilla Asantewaa Ayeh

Ahead of the upcoming 2021 University of Ghana Students Representative Council (UGSRC) elections, Priscilla Asantewaa Ayeh – the only female in the presidential race – and Henry Nii Adjiri Quarcoopome teamed up to run for the positions of president and vice-president, respectively.

For Miss Ayeh, the desire to better and improve the welfare and interests of students to ensure a conducive environment for academic excellence, self-development and personal growth, is what inspired her to run for the UGSRC presidential elections.

“The zeal to help and impact positively the lives of young people not only on University of Ghana campus but on other campuses, in Africa and globally through helping them cultivate the entrepreneurial spirit and finally to empower people especially females not to be limited but also do more and great,” she told Kuulpeeps.

Henry, on the other hand, decided to run for the elections because of his earnest desire to serve.

“I have been a man of service over the years. The desire to see the student front progress in advocacy and seeking the welfare of the ordinary student. The SRC needs to progress, the progress we need will start with leaders who will continue the good abandoned projects of previous administrations and build a formidable student front. These have been my greatest source of inspiration to boldly step in the presidential race.”

However, as a team, Priscilla and Henry desire to make the lives of University of Ghana students more comfortable, bringing out the creativity and the entrepreneurial spirit in the ordinary student.

“This is an awakening call; a call to action; a call for a united front; and call to defy the odds. We come with an all-inclusive policy framework to catapult the SRC to the next level. Policies including ’10K’, ‘Dibi’, ‘Making UG more accommodating for students with disabilities’, ‘Honoring our Sports Men and Women’, ‘Sales Day’ just to mention a few. The interest of every student matters and deserves due representation,” they said about what they hope to do when given the nod by the student body.

Priscilla and Henry are hoping to garner 53% of the votes to be declared as winners of the presidential elections.
