… As It Wants All Leaders Replaced with TESCON (NPP) Executives
The front of the National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) and the Ghana Union of Professional Students (GUPS) have been at the mercy of rampaging hooligan groups in recent times. These groups were allegedly released by a faction at the presidency that wants TESCON (NPP) Executives to lead the students’ fronts in the country.
Last Thursday, the Kokomlemle Assemblyman, Moses Abor, allegedly led a group of violent young hooligans from Accra Newtown and Nima with a few National Security guys weiliding handcuffs to stop the handing over ceremony of GUPS at the premises of the African University College of Communications (AUCC). It took the strength of some students to resist and curtailed the attack.
In the middle of the event, the students were hinted of the presence of the hooligans who were alleged to have come from the office of Vice President, Dr. Mahamoudu Bawumia on the AUCC Campus. They came in their numbers following an earlier call from the national security outfit to stop the event, GhanaNewsOnline.com gathered.
The intention of the thugs was to handcuff the legitimately elected President of GUPS and carry them away, but they failed..
For fear, students who used cars had to escape by taxis leaving their vehicles behind, whilst others ran to take refuge in nearby houses for the fear of their lives. Not all of them could escape as some got attacked and their cameras smashed for taking photographs of the happenings on of that night.
A few identified guys who came with the Kokomlemle Assemblyman, Moses Abor, were one Awudu, also Assemblyman at Nima East, one Charway, the alleged choice of the “Vice President” for GUPS president and Derrick, Assemblyman at Maamobi amongst many others.
Sources say that they always identify themselves as persons sent from the office of the Vice President to ensure that “the right students” leaders are elected for proper handing over in all the tertiary institutions in Ghana.
Students from other public and private University Colleges who throng the AUCC Campus to witness the anticipated colourful handing over ceremony, only to witness the ruling NPP led Nana Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government muddy the ceremony that night.
