The leadership of the University of Ghana’s Students Representative Council (SRC) is set to submit a letter to the office of the Pro Vice Chancellor through the Dean of Students Affairs to get finer details on procurement and financing of generators on campus in the event of a short in electric current.
The President of the SRC, Sylvester Amoako made this known in an interaction on our morning show, Campus Exclusive Friday 5th September 2018 with host, Jennifer Esi Aniwa.
“The resolution we took at EXECOMM meeting last two days was the fact that we were going to submit a letter to the office of the PRO VC through the office of the Dean to request for details about the generator. How much they were procured for. How much students have paid over the years and why students are still paying”
According to Sylvester, details of the generators are scanty due to particularly the lack of an archival system in the SRC to hold documents and record dealing of the student leadership.
“…as SRC, an archival system is something we really have to look at because there are no documents in the office of SRC President to talk about Generators issues, how they were procured and how much these generators cost and how much students are to pay and all…these are things that were procured in Joshua Dogbe’s (SRC President, 2014/2015) time”
Two weeks ultimatum
However, the SRC President made known that the SRC has given two weeks “grace period” to get positive feedback from the PRO VC.
Sylvester said that beyond the two weeks “grace period” the SRC will take issues into their own hands.
“we gave it a time line of two weeks beyond which we will want take the issue in our own hands and see what we can do about it”
Sylvester Amoako nonetheless mentioned that the SRC will exhaust all efforts to find a lasting solution to the issue.
