LEGON (LegonConnect)- A former Headboy of the St. Augustine’s College and Public Relations Officer of the Hilla Limann Hall Junior Common Room, Fritz Jerry Moses, has joined the race for UGSRC President after weeks of speculation.
In campaign advertising banners and posters spread across all of campus less than a fortnight after he announced his intentions, Fritz Moses makes his intentions clear that he’s in the race for the long haul. Already, he has started an aggressive room to room outreach to connect with students, and appears to be prosecuting an intensive advertising campaign to sell his name and brand- his campaign has already splashed dozens of banners and posters across various campus hotspots, and is reportedly making plans for more.
This advertising and groundwork juggernaut notwithstanding, Fritz Moses enters the race with his own political baggage that include his removal from post as Headboy when he was in St. Augustine’s College. As Headboy, he is said to have seized phones and given them back to the owners, in breach of the school management’s rules that whenever phones are seized by prefects, they must be handed over to the school authorities, and not back to students. This may prove to be a non-issue, but in a race that is going to be tough and with high stakes, this baggage will have to be quickly dealt with by the campaign.
Despite his late entry into the race, Fritz Moses is already one of the top contenders for the position of UGSRC President, buoyed by his strong support from key constituencies like Hilla Limann Hall, Pax (the University of Ghana union of all Catholic students), the Political Science Department and APSU- Legon (the old boys’ association of St. Augustine’s College). His campaign says it will leverage on his strong support from these constituencies to shore up his electability.
The election for the next batch of UGSRC executives will be held sometime in April this year. LegonConnect will keep you up to speed with all updates as regards the elections.
