Samini wins GIMPA SRC elections
Dancehall artiste, Samini, is the newly-elected Student Representative Council (SRC) President of the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA).
The singer born, Emmanuel Andrews Samini polled 307 votes to win the election against the 211 votes of his contender, Theophilus Quartey.
Earlier, the musician had revealed his intentions to contest the race in a post on Twitter.
“I am contesting for the GIMPA SRC Presidency, I will be doing my vetting tomorrow, and hopefully, I will become the next SRC President of GIMPA,” he posted.
The business administration student had earlier in an interview stated his plans for the student body at GIMPA.
“As an artiste and entertainer and what I am used to in terms of soliciting funds to support their projects, I know what I can do if I take charge and sacrifice myself or bring myself to serve and be part of how we can raise more, someone who is not that loud on social media space.
“I know everything has to do with funding; everything has to do with budget, and sometimes, I see the budget that they claim they would take for SRC Week to happen”, but faced with budgetary constraints.
” I have put my ear on the ground, and I have watched as well, and I know that there are plenty of things that students need. With the institution being private, it can only run on profit or loss. We would need benevolent institutions to come on board to support them,” he said on GTV Breakfast Show.
His contender, Theophilus Quartey, is a level 300 student of finance.
Samini, now the elected president, has the mandate with his vice, Mabel Mensah, for the 2022/2023 academic year.
