The Students Chaplaincy Council (SCC) of KNUST has climaxed its 7 days praise and worship crusade with a joint service which was held at the Royal Parade Grounds of the university.
The Holy Ghost filled congregation could not help but gave thanks to the Almighty God for keeping them to see yet another new year.
The first SCC joint service for the semester was also used to inaugurate the KNUST missions 2012.
The preacher for the programme, Rev. Dr. Ebenezer Tetteh highlighted that a child of God does not talk like how others talk adding that “we do not win our own battle because we are intellectuals, but because the Lord is on our side.”
The SRC president, Mr. Yaw Oduro welcomed the students back to campus and said plans are far advanced to institute a loan scheme for students, which he said was on the drawing board.
Mr. Oduro also said about 30 street lights have been procured to be installed on the road linking Unity hall and the SRC hostel.
The Vice Chancellor of the university, Professor William Otoo Ellis, said the supplementary exams will take off at the end of this semester. He was unhappy about the reckless driving by some motorists on the university roads assuring that processes are underway to install speed rumps on some selected roads on campus.
On security, the Vice Chancellor advised students to be security conscious adding that the best security is ourselves.
He recognized that this semester is full of activities including elections, but however bemoaned the recent twist students’ elections have taken, which according to him, should not be a reflection of an academic environment.
Leadership, according to the VC is about service and sacrifice.
