Some First-Year students of the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) have cast doubts about the existence of a Students’ Representative Council (SRC) in the school.
Speaking to UPSANEWSROOM.com on a condition of anonymity, the students say the “hectic nature of registration” on campus shows there is no SRC executives at the UPSA.
“Does the SRC have leaders at all? Look at the struggles we go through daily just to register to start the academic year. This is not fair at all,” a female First-Year student disappointingly said.
According to her, if there were “competent” SRC Executives in the school, they would have announced their presence “not in words but in action.”
“You don’t need to tell someone that you’re working. The people will see that in the way you go about things and act generally,” she said.
Another student who identified himself as Evans said her friends in other schools are being helped by the various Interim SRC Executives to “properly settle” to campus life despite the threat posed by the coronavirus.
“My friends in other schools such as the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology speak highly of their Interim SRC Executives,” he said, adding “they are full of praise for them because they see them in action.”
But the Interim SRC Management Committee (IMC) at the University of Professional Studies, Accra “could not be found,” he said.
Meanwhile, UPSANEWSROOM.com has made frantic efforts to get the reaction of the Chairman of the Interim SRC IMC on the matters raised by the First-Year students, but he declined.
