The management of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology has formally released a statement to govern impending and future src and other election processes on campus. This was raised as a result of what transpired during the SRC screening process last year. The statement Reads;
Following the disturbances which occurred during the vetting of SRC aspirants at the Great Hall on 3rd July 2021, resulting in the destruction of properties and injuries to some students, a fact-finding committee was set up to investigate the matter and come up with some recommendations to forestall the occurrence of such incidence in the future. The committee made a number of recommendations that were accepted by the Academic Board. The following are some of the salient recommendations;
1) That the practice of vetting (screening) candidates in the SRC electoral process should be completely scrapped. However, should it become expedient for any vetting to take place, that should be done virtually.
2) That the order for vetting of aspirants (if it becomes necessary) should be strictly done
by balloting to ensure transparency.
3) That all SRC elections should end by 5:00 pm.
4) That all SRC-related nomination forms should be sold at respective Finance offices in the colleges/ halls to ensure transparency and accountability. All students are therefore to take note of the above directives and comply accordinglyFollow us on Whatsapp , Instagram, Twitter , Facebook
