TV3 News’ reporter, Spencer Kwabena Boateng Mensah, a level 400 student of the University of Cape Coast has issued a disclaimer regarding a whatsapp message circulating around asking students to nominate him in the up-coming maiden edition of UCC SRC Excellence & Innovation Awards.
Spencer noted that his attention was drawn to a whatsapp message – beseeching students to nominate him for an award – Monday night (21st March, 2016) by his friend.
The journalist, who spoke to Choicism.com on the sidelines of the said circulation which listed him as the personality of the year with DJ Sleek as the best campus DJ amongst others said, he had no idea about it.
When Choicism.com asked whether he would be contending for any award, the TV3’s central regional broadcast journalist said he was not interested to be nominated for any award due to religious reasons.
“I personally do not like to contest with a brother for his or my honour. Have him that which is his and have me that which is mine” he added.
The Philosophy and Religion student however hinted that he had a project for the university and the international community which he hopes to make known soon.
Spencer has used his profession and his station to defend the university in clearing rumors that went viral following the cholera outbreak at UCC, the hack of UCC’s official website, the nude videos of a UCC student amongst others which become topical issues in the recent past.
The youngman though sometimes files presidential and parliamentary reports from the Central Region, he takes delight in reporting the marginalised in society as recently noted through his support for a visually impaired pupil Christian Morgan from the Cape Coast School for the Deaf/Blind who was seen on TV3’s Talented Kids Audition.
He however wishes all those to be nominated for the awards the best of luck.
