KNUST Local NUGS President advises Student Leaders

Mr. Osman Ayariga, KNUST L. NUGS president

The president of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) local branch of the National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) has appealed to student leaders not to allow themselves to be use as escapades by self-seeking political leaders at the detriment of the students they lead.
Mr. Osman Ayariga made this known at the maiden edition of the NUGS-Vice Chancellors’ Excellence Awards organized by the branch to, among other reasons, honour some students in the University for their sterling academic performance and to motivate other students to work hard.
Mr. Ayariga pleaded with the university authorities to allow the programme stay and also advised successive executives to ensure continuity of some of the educative programmes such as the Excellence Awards.
The Pro-Vice Chancellor and chairman for the programme, Professor Peter Donkor welcomed all the dignitaries present and wished them a fruitful programme.
In all, 52 awards were given out to deserving students and some citations were presented to some invited dignitaries.
The Dr. R.P Baffuor Award, a special award, went to Belinda Narh, a third year law student. The VC Special Award for Sports went to Oduro Godwin.
Other awardees include Philemon Laar, best student Radio presenter, NUGS best hall of residence went to Independence hall and the best debating hall went to University hall (Katanga) with Justice Boakye Appiah snatching the best debater. Conti-Dome MOG, a joint cadet corps comprising Unity and Africa halls, was awarded the best cadet corp.
Richard Gyasi was adjudged the most innovative student and the most popular student going to Samuel Fosu.
Citations were also presented to the MP for Ablekumah South and son of the first VC of KNUST, Mr. Fritz Baffour and Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh, MP for Manhyia constituency.
The well attended and colourful programme was interspersed with cultural display, poetry recitals and musical interludes.
