The Public Relations Officer of the University of Ghana Student Representative Council (UGSRC) who doubles as the Chair of the Publications and Information Committee, Sampson Tagbor has revealed that the details to the administrative control of the UG SRC online application which was developed by the erstwhile crop of SRC executives are yet to be handed over to the current administration.
The spokesman of the SRC who made this revelation on the floor of the General Assembly, while taking his turn to present the end of first semester report of his committee said that even though his outfit has made frantic efforts at retrieving access to the app and the login details to the various social media accounts, the just past executives together with the then Public Relations Officer, Eleazer Fordjour-Quayson have failed to hand over the controls.
‘On the issue of the UG SRC app, it is very unfortunate that the former administration is yet to release the administrative control details to us. We have asked on countless occasions and yet we are not getting results’, he lamented.
Mr. Tagbor further bemoaned the fact that, even passwords to some of the official social media accounts of the SRC are yet to also be released. He maintained that the current administration has had to resort to using personal accounts for correspondence with students. This is in spite of the fact the twitter and instagram accounts are fully functional and being controlled by the General Secretary of the SRc, Ms. Cornelia Dzordzormey.
‘Even passwords to some of the social media accounts of the SRC have not been handed over to this administration. You’d have realized that we share information but not through the official outlets, this is because we don’t have access’, he added.
While attempts made at reaching the former PRO have not yielded much, checks by #UniversNews however reveal that the app which was hosted on google playstore is no longer there.
The UG SRC app is an online software which was developed by the Daniel Otting-Awuah led administration to provide students with a platform to get pertinent information about the SRC and news related materials which will effectively bring the students close to the SRC.
The application was developed by a student-led software developer known as Marvin Gates.
