According to the Dean of Students, Professor Wilson Agyei Agyare, there was a need to swear-in an interim executive body to manage the affairs of the SRC since the general elections for the 2020/2021 SRC Administration was interrupted by the crippling effect of the novel coronavirus.
The executives, he explained, were appointed through an act established by the SRC which made provision for the institution of an interim Council until elected leaders of the SRC officially take over.
The five-member interim executive body includes representatives of elected executives from the Colleges, halls, Non- residential, Institute of Distance Learning and clerk of the KNUST SRC Parliament.
