Akudugo Atanga Patrick, a third-year English and Gurune trainee of the Gbewa College of Education leads the charge to change the narrative of student leadership as he liaised with a female running mate for the 2022/2023 Student Representative Council (SRC) presidential race.
Student leadership and politics is a very competitive space and serves as a springboard for nurturing the national political and business leaders of the future.
The space however is largely dominated by men and over the years has become a very tough terrain for women to venture into. However, a young, vibrant English and Gurune trainee is gradually changing the narrative as she stands out tremendously as a running mate.
In an interview with OneMuzikGh.Com, Ayaaba Gloria Alaale noted that being the female running mate for the presidential race at the Gbewa College of Education Students’ Representative Council (SRC), she is motivated by the needs of her fellow students and the urgency required in addressing those needs.
Gloria is motivated by the ambition to inspire more women to venture into leadership positions to change the gender narratives in leadership and to encourage them to attain their full potential. She has already gained a huge following among the general student population, as she seems to communicate the needs of students in a way that has never been experienced. She attributes the following she currently enjoys to her good communication skills and ability to relate and provide pragmatic solutions to the needs of the students.
Together with her boss, Akudugo Atanga Patrick, the vociferous English and Gurune students promised to ensure that these targeted areas, which are a reflection of the needs and the voice of students of the Gbewa College of Education, are met.
They also called on the student body of the Gbewa College of Education to support and vote for them come Thursday, March 30 when they visit the polls.
