According to the Electoral Commissioner of NUGS, the commission’s attention has been drawn to a purported Twitter page declaration of one Kwesi Atuahene and Francess Gifty Ennin as the NUGS President and General Secretary elect respectively.

The Commission has since dismissed the said declaration as null and void. They have also called on persons behind the Twitter page declaration to provide photos and video evidence showing voting, counting and declaration of the two persons announced to be elected via Twitter.

He explained that, based on the infractions that have characterised the process, the outcome cannot be deemed as credible.

The assertion by the NUGS General Secretary, was in reaction to earlier reports on social media which alleged the electoral irregularities and political schemes.

He again explained that based on the NUGS Constitution, it is his responsibility to collate the Voters Register for elections at the Union’s Annual Congress. But according him, some of his colleague executive members took up that role and generated a register without his knowledge.

Reacting to Julius Kwame Anthony’s claims, the President of the Association, Emmanuel Boakye Yiadom, dismissed the allegations by his General Secretary, Julius Kwame Anthony.

The President stated that the Congress has been smooth and devoid of any electoral malfeasance, as alleged by his General Secretary.

Contrary to the suggestions by the NUGS Secretary, the President, Mr. Yiadom said the Union is not divided; adding that he is surprised about the posture and comments of Julius Kwame Anthony.
