Commotion greets UPSA GA meeting as SRC president, Campus Clubs Rep trade words

Speaker of UPSA GA, Rt. Hon Prince Gavi in conversation with some General Assembly members at the meeting

A General Assembly meeting of the UPSA Students’ Representative Council (SRC) held Monday ended inconclusively after the President traded words with Representative of the Campus Clubs and Associations, Hadi Keelson.

Mr Peter MwinZumah appeared before the GA to respond to questions about some questionable transactions he undertook in the first semester.

An independent probe into the financial statements of the student council had revealed the President spent a whooping GH¢25,000 on project work training seminar for final year students and GH¢28,677 to buy office equipment last year.

But reacting to the findings of the Auditors, Mr MwinZumah used words considered by Mr Keelson to be offensive and insulting to GA members.

This sparked a vile exchange of words between the SRC president and the Clubs Representative, compelling Speaker of the General Assembly, Rt. Hon. Prince Courage Gavi, to call for a brief break.

UPSANEWSROOM.com’s Papa Nyan Andoh and Venessa Oduma Boamah reported the intervention of the Speaker did little to calm tensions at the meeting.

Some students who observed the meeting claimed the raging animosity between the two was because Mr Keelson lost the SRC presidency to Mr MwinZumah during the 2018/2019 SRC Election.

But the Representative of the Campus Clubs has dismissed the claim.

A House divided against itself?

Meanwhile, a section of GA members interviewed by UPSANEWSROOM.com described the posturing of the officers of the student council at the meeting as a classic case of the Biblical “kingdom divided against itself.”

President of the Communication Studies Students Association, Keziah Dekpor, pointed out that the SRC executives “appear divided” and this heightens the suspicion of students to a deafening level.
