Foul play: 'Juju' in student leadership elections

Politics they say is dirty game, no matter the partied involved.There are things people to just to gain political power to rule over the masses.

Residents of the SRC Hall of the University of Cape Coast (UCC) last Thursday, February 28, woke up to a scary spectacle of a calabash containing two eggs and kola nuts, with a piece of paper with the inscription: “Warning!!! For your Good, Step Aside. Danger!!!”.

According to Daily Graphic reports, the calabash was positioned at the entrance of the door to the room of one of the aspirants to the position of president of the UCC branch of the National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS).

Some students believed that the items were packaged as 'juju' by one of the students contesting the position of NUGS representative of the hall to brighten his chances of winning.

Many students could not fathom why a student should employ spiritualism in an internal contest.

A section of the students said the incident should be treated with the contempt it deserved while others believed that it was a serious development that must be investigated.

Confirming the reports, the Chairman of the SRC Hall, Dr Michael Boakye-Yiadom, said an emergency meeting was scheduled for yesterday evening to deliberate on the matter.

One aspirant, who did not want his name to be published because of possible reaction from his parents, told the Daily Graphic that he intended to step down for fear of his life.

A student who described himself as a traditionalist, watered down the incident and said: “No true traditionalist will ever use eggs from the poultry farm as the ones in the calabash appeared to be. Local eggs are always used.”
