An exclusive investigation by UPSANEWSROOM.com has uncovered the identities of some SRC executives of the University of Professional Studies, Accra who sold the free GLO sim cards to students.
UPSANEWSROOM.com has learnt the SRC Vice President, Nathaniel Addo Jill Jnr., was one of the executives who visited some lecture halls to sell the sim cards to students at GH¢5.
One such class he visited in the first semester of the 2019/2020 academic year was the 4-Year LLB Level 200 class where he sold the sim cards to the students with juicy promises.
The SRC Vice President had reportedly assured the law students the purchase of the GLO sim cards at GH¢5 comes with a 2.5gigs of data, 100 minutes call to other networks and Unlimited on all Glo to Glo calls.
Also, Mr Addo Jill Jnr., reportedly told the law class the names of the students would reflect on the sim cards.
The money that would be accrued from the sale of the cards would be used in retiring the fees of some defaulting students last semester, he reportedly said.
But in a shocking development, there was no package on the sim cards sold to the 4-Year LLB Level 200 students as promised and their names were not on them either.
Many of the affected students who spoke to UPSANEWSROOM.com on a condition of anonymity expressed surprise about the turn of events.
“There was no package on the sim card I bought,” a female student told UPSANEWSROOM.com‘s reporter Monday, adding: “I feel I have been cheated because I had to buy more scratch cards before subscribing to the package I was promised.”
Another student also shared his shocking experience with UPSANEWSROOM.com after realising there was no package on the sim card.
“I don’t get it…is it the role of the SRC executives to be selling sim cards through deceit in the name of helping needy students?” the male student quizzed.
He has promised to team up with others to file a petition to be addressed to both the SRC General Assembly and Judicial Committees for a swift probe into the matter.
“We need to uncover the truth and we have to get it no matter what,” he said, adding: “this is the right time to uphold accountability.”
