Manchester, Mandeville- United Student Movement (USM) Presidential Candidate, Kevin Ferguson has withdrawn from the student government’s Election Race.
He made the announcement in a formal letter addressed to the movement’s Electoral, Planning and Oversight Committee on Sunday, March 7, 2021.
Ferguson is now the third candidate to pull out of the race- a little over a week before election day.
The two other candidates are Tajae Hall, who was vying for Vice- President of Academic Administration and appointed candidate, Larreshia Wilson, for Public Relations Officer.
Ferguson’s letter of Withdrawal stated that his decision is not a lack of belief in his policies or ideas, but because of his level of preparedness.
“I want my fellow students and colleagues of the Northern Caribbean University, to get the best representation possible, and I think it’s unfair to them not to have a leader that is more prepared for this office.”
He added that he underestimated the demand, public attention and the strain of a campaign of this kind. However, he wished the remaining candidates best wishes and promised to assist the future President.
Meanwhile, Former candidate Hall cited her reasons for withdrawing to personal and academic responsibilities along with ‘recent developments.’
The remaining Presidential Candidates are, Marleen Campbell, Neil Brivette and Ceejay Johnson.
