The Director of Global Management Consultants based in a United Kingdom (UK) Company, Lawrence Joseph Ashun has been tipped to win the Vice Chairmanship position of Saint John’s School Old Boys Association (Old Saint), Takoradi in the Western Region.
Mr. Ashun, also a Senior Forensic Accountant in charge of financial capital approval for banks and other giant financial institutions is seeking the mandate of members to serve Old Saints diligently as Vice Chairman when elected come August 15, 2020.
Old Saint Joseph Ashun has been a member of the Association in good standing for over a decade and he has supported the Association in diverse ways over the years.
Mr. Ashun feels the time has come for him to bring his experiences, exposure, expertise to the frontline to collaborate with other members of the executive committee to move the fraternity to the next level.
Speaking to National Tymes, Old Saint Joseph Ashun said “my desire is to serve and help in all ways using every breath in me and all resources to help the chairman and other executives to bring our dear Old Saints Association to the position we desire in society”.
“…..I can’t rest until there is an achievement, I humbly look forward to serving the Association and my beloved school, Saint John’s Secondary School in this region”, assured Old Saint.
As an Old Saint, “I reserve the single responsibility to contribute to the reforms and restructuring of our dear Association. One way is to present myself as the opportunity has presented itself so I can contribute quality and effective leadership that will solutionize the challenges confronting us to renew our enthusiasm and ensure our collective gains”.
In spite his great deals which won him endorsements from amongst fellow Old Saints, Ashun is keenly contested by Mr. Francis Ackom Buadu.
They have all been cleared by the Association’s electoral commission headed by Old Saint Robert Nana Mensah to contest for the slot.
All other contesting positions including Chairmanship, Joseph Honny, un-opposed; the Treasurer, Courage Ahiagbe, un-opposed; the Organizing Secretary, Vincent Semapley, un-opposed; the Secretary, Josiah Eshun, un-opposed; Officer, Alex Darku, un-opposed and Jeffrey Abeiku Sam, un-opposed Officer.
It’s my humble appeal to all Old Saints in good standing and eligible to vote, to look no further than our distinguished Lawrence Joseph Ashun who has given his all for the progress and development of our alma mata.
