According to one of the executives of TESCON, the two executives were invited for a meeting in order to listen to their side of the story but they refused to honour the invitation. For this reason, the whole student body is to take note that they are not acting on behave of Tescon since Tescon is a credible and respected institution.
Below is the full statement signed by the rest of TESCON executives
We the undersigned executives of University of Ghana TESCON write to disassociate ourselves from the bribery scandal surrounding the President (Livinus Kweku Bondzie) and Emmanuel Attobrah(Dep. Tescon Treasurer).
UG Tescon is a very reputable Student organization and as such it’s image has to be protected at all point in time. As Executives, our key mandate is to protect and defend the welfare of our members and the New Patriotic Party at large. Believing in the Danquah Dombo Busia Tradition, we cannot sit down and watch some “Reckless Self Seekers” to destroy the hard gained image of the University of Ghana Tescon.
As part of our duty in ensuring that we present well equipped candidates to contest elections on UG campus, we wish to inform the general public that our endorsement to run on the ticket of Tescon is not dependent on How Much You can Pay but competence, loyalty and commitment.
We have taken notice of the audio going viral on various social media platforms. For us, this is very disheartening, unprofessional and an abuse of power and as such condemn the act without equivocation. We want to notify those involved in the alleged act to quickly as possible return any monies that has been extorted from any of the SRC aspirants in the name of endorsement.
We also sympathize with Lady Cornelia who is a victim in the alleged bribery scandal. As executives, we want to render an unqualified apology to the aspirant and wish her well in her endeavors.
Finally, We wish to inform our loyal members and sympathizers to remain resolute as we investigate and get to the root of this scandal.
