In recent times the amount of money spent on election campaigns by students in some universities has increased considerably. This has led to the condemnation of this act by the newly elected President of the Graduate Students Association of Ghana (GRASAG) of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Mr Evangel Adu-Boadu.
The president who was speaking to Atta Kusi Adusei on ‘Community Watch’ in an interview Monday stated the act leads to the students trying to recoup these monies later from the coffers of the various organizations after being elected into office.
On the legacy he wished to leave, he made it known that ‘leaders in our country and various educational institutions do not see to the basic needs of the people in areas of infrastructure”.
Corruption and embezzlement of funds are other areas he also noted and reinforced that a leadership of accountability, trust and sincerity are the legacies he would like to leave when he completed his term of office.
Mr. Adu-Boadu commended his predecessors for the first class facilities provided in the secretariat and computer rooms. He further praised them for finalizing negotiations with the Dean of Distance Learning to include GRASAG dues in the fees to help generate funds to finance projects outlined by the association.
