UG SRC presidential aspirant Guru promises to solve accommodation problem

Ghanaian musician Guru, also known as Maradona Yeboah Agyei, recently revealed his intentions to run for President of the University of Ghana’s Students Representative Council (SRC) during an interview with Joy FM.

In his conversation with Kwame Dadzie on Showbiz A-Z, Guru stated that he was inspired by the urgent needs of the students. He highlighted his determination to tackle the accommodation challenges within the university and settle inter-hall conflicts.

Drawing from his background in real estate, Guru outlined his vision to uphold the reputation and integrity of the institution by creating comfortable living spaces for students. He emphasized the importance of accessible housing, citing his experiences in Australia where he advocated for new universities and secured investments for student hostels.

Guru shared, “When I was in Australia, I was able to lobby for new universities and get investors to invest in them. They are ready to build a whole hostel for some universities around Kumasi Barekese. Sometimes I give out my room to colleagues who have nowhere to sleep.”

Despite acknowledging the efforts of the university administration, Guru believes that his involvement can make a significant impact in resolving these challenges. If elected, he aims to promote peace among the various halls on campus.

While expressing his aspirations to serve as a UN peace advocate, Guru clarified that he does not aspire to venture into mainstream politics. His focus remains on collaborating with international bodies like the UN to support humanitarian causes.

As a Level 300 student majoring in Political Science and Information Studies with an impressive GPA of 3.88, Guru balances his academic pursuits with his passion for enhancing student welfare. Beyond his musical accomplishments, such as hits like ‘Pastor’, ‘Abena’, ‘Obonsam Ani’, and ‘Alkayida’, Guru’s candidacy for the SRC presidency showcases his dedication to positively impacting university life.
