Three Second-year students of the Koforidua Technical University (KTU) have been disqualified for presenting forged results slips to the electoral Commission to contest the 2018/2019 SRC General Election

Eight (8) others were constitutionally disqualified for reasons that they did not meet the required CGPA to contest for any Position. Minimum CGPA require: President Position – 3.20 and above, Vice president Position3.00 and above, and all other executive positions – 3.00 and above

One nominee is not a registered student, she has not registered for two semesters therefore cannot contest for any position. She has results for just first year, thus, two semesters out of three semesters required

As it stands now, those who made it after the verifying of document, we have;

One (1) Person For The Presidency,
One (1) For Secretary,
Two (2) For The Finance Office,
Two (2) For Public Relations Office (PRO),
One (1) For GNUTS,
None (0) For Women’s Commissioner,
Two (2) For Male Organizer,
One (1) For Welfare And
Two (2) For Procurement Office

“The SRC Electoral Commission wish to inform the entire student body of KTU that, after the commission has finished verifying the documents submitted by the students who wished to contest for SRC executive position, most of them do not meet the constitutional requirements, on this note the commission wish to extend the nomination from 6th June, 2018 to 8th June, 2018All students who will be picking nomination forms during this extension will be added to the main elections” said the electoral Commission

It is unclear as to those who forged their results slips amount to any constitutional violations or breach in the NABPTEX Student Guide, or if the Electoral commission or University Management will take any illegal action.
