“On behalf of the over 100,000 University students across the length and breadth of Ghana, we would like to express our disappointment in TV3 and demand an apology from them for their unfortunate and mediocre production work done on 28th October, 2017 during their News @10pm broadcast,” a statement from the new leadership said.
The statement described the gentleman [Joseph Agyekum] as “an impostor and a fraud.”
The leadership of the association has threatened to take legal action against the station if they fail to apologise and give the legally elected Executives an opportunity to clear the airwaves within 14 days.
They, however, want to put on record that at their emergency congress held at University of Energy and Natural Resources (UENR), the delegates overwhelmingly voted for Albert Kesse Oppong as their new president for the 2017/2018 academic year.
The new Executives were officially sworn into office at a brief ceremony held at Methodist University College, Dansoman campus on 28th October 30, 2017.
On Saturday, 28th October, 2017 during TV3’s News@10 broadcast, a gentleman by name Joseph Agyekum was invited to the studio to speak on issues concerning National Service Personnel allowances in which over 58, 000 have been paid, whiles about 8, 000 remain unpaid pending investigations and auditing.
The gentleman, according to the association’s executives is not the legitimate president of USAG. He contested for the position but lost to Albert Kesse Oppong.
