THE Kwadaso Agricultural College has elected new prefects to administer the affairs of the school for the next academic year.
Mr Bernard Addai was elected President of the Students Representative Council (SRC) after polling 94 per cent of the total votes cast. Other officers elected included Mr Nicholas Atanga Atoa, General Attaché; Mr Kofi Asigbe, Auditor; Mr Peter Nketia, men’s Prefect; Mr Yusif Abu Samed, Entertainment Prefect, and Mr Paul Anderson, Animal attaché. For the first time in the college’s history, it conducted the elections through the electronic voting system.
A science graduate from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology developed the system. In an interview after the election, the chairman of the school’s election committee, Mr Thomas Quaye, said the decision to introduce the electronic voting was to eliminate suspicion in the election.
He said in the past, students complained about irregularities in the elections and expressed happiness that there were no complaints with the new system.
The outgoing SRC President, Mr Eben Tetteh Agbo, said the SRC had decided to make the electronic voting a permanent system of elections in the college. He commended the student body for ensuring that the election went on peacefully.
The Principal of the College, Mr K.F. Kontoh also commended the SRC for going a step further to bring sanity into its election. He promised that the college’s administration would support SRC to ensure sanity in their activities both on and off campus.
