Candidate for the position of Vice President (Welfare)

Image for JOHN GBABO


My name is John Gbabo, I am an MSc student of business and management, and I am running to be your vice President Welfare. I have had the opportunity to represent my class during my undergraduate studies, where I was the class rep for four years, I also was on the student rep committee, where issues affecting students were discussed and solutions provided. I believe I have the background experience to run in the capacity of Vice President Welfare.


  • Your go to person: I will be operating access to all policy where students can come chat about issues bothering them, changes they would like to see effected. This accessibility will be made on a bookable appointment base and freedom to reach me via mobile at any time, to give every student the chance to be heard. My aim here is to allow all, the chance to chat about their concerns and or problems.
  • A more inclusive RGU: my agenda is to improve on the existing platforms to help tackle present issues and prepare for potential issues. Help to ensure students get the best support whilst following up to ensure issues are satisfactorily resolved. This would help create an atmosphere where listening to your needs will not be enough but being heard and acted upon.
  • Meeting your little needs: I will work closely with the existing government and university authority to create a more conducive learning environment, where needs like napping areas, provide blankets for lecture rooms that seem very cold will be addressed. We will continuously improve and innovate on the facility to give all students an experience while you are here.

If elected I will be YOUR vice president welfare, and my work will be directed by YOUR needs!
