The pollen agents alleged that, the stuffed ballots have no serial numbers of the Electoral Commission of NUGS.

The National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) is currently holding its Annual Delegates’ Congress at Ejisu in the Ashanti Region.

The electioneering process has been described by many as flawed and has seen some candidates and their supporters declaring themselves winners while vote counting is said to be ongoing.

The official Twitter handle of the Union @NUGSOfficial has also been used to declare Kwesi Atuahene and Francess Gifty Ennin as the NUGS President and General Secretary elect respectively.

The statement of declaration as seen on the official Twitter page as at 7:58pm on Saturday, 2nd April, 2022 reads “Congratulations on your election, Mr. Kwesi Atuahene. Do serve well”
