A violent altercation broke out as Ghanaian dance hall musician Samini announced SRC President elect at the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration( GIMPA) elections yesterday.
The Dancehall musician won in a landslide victory, beating his opponent, Theophilus Quartey, in the race to lead the student body as its spokesperson.
Some students of GIMPA we’re seen violently confronting security officers at the campus after the election in a video that has been seen circulating online.
In the video, students believed to be supporters of Theophilus Quartey, we’re seen disagreeing with the results and demanding a recount.
It also captured the moment when a ballot box was whisked away by an election official to prevent the violent crowd from breaking it apart.
No information has officially come out to confirm that it was supporters of Samini’s opponent that started the misunderstanding but calls from deep sources made this clear.
Samini on the other hand has pledged to use his influence to propel the university to a higher level.
