The musician polled 307 votes to win the election as against the 211 votes for his contender, Theophilus Quartey.
Samini will have Mabel Mensah as his Vice-president for GIMPA SRC.
Prior to the him winning the election, Samini in an interview on GTV said ….
”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 would take for SRC Week to happen but it still hasn’t, all because of budgetary constraint.
”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. But with the institution being a private one it can only run-on profit or loss. We would need benevolent Institution to come on board to support them”, he said on GTV Breakfast Show.
