Raymond Ayilu; a second year MPhil. Economics student of the University of Ghana put up a spirited campaign to beat his only contender Innocent Badasu, also from the same university in the just ended National Congress of the Graduate Students’ Association of Ghana (GRASAG).
After several weeks of touring the country to woo potential delegates, Raymond Ayilu and his running mate; Ebenezer Henaku Jr. who looked like the underdogs in the race touched base with delegates at the congress grounds and obtained 91 votes leaving their opponent with 79 votes.
At the handing over ceremony, the new GRASAG National President Raymond Ayilu promised Graduate Students across the country a firm and fair leadership that will stop at nothing in its quest to champion the interest of Graduate Students.
The congress which ended early Saturday saw close to 300 delegates, well wishers and observers converge at the University of Mines and Technology, Tarkwa to brood over what can only be described as the “woes of the Graduate Student in Ghana”.
