News went viral on social media platforms on Monday, November,17, 2014 that the Local NUGS president of the University of Cape Coast, His Excellency Muniru Azuug had assaulted one Ms Becky, secretary to the office of the Student Representative Council (SRC) which had resulted in the latter being hospitalised at the Central Regional hospital, but a communique issued from the office of the local NUGS has out-rightly dismissed this claim.
A statement signed by the Public Relations Officer for Local NUGS UCC Mr. Enoch Acheapong has rubbished the claim and has urged all persons to treat such rumour with the utmost contempt it deserves.
Below is the full content of the communique.
It has been brought to the notice of Muniru Azuug(REDEEMER),Local NUGS Prez, a falsehood fabricated to defame him.In the said story,it is purely concocted that REDEEMER went to the office of the SRC to demand that proceed of the shuttle bus should be given to him to cater for his transportation to Mfansiman SHS where he is doing his mandatory teaching practice.
The office wishes to state in clear terms that the cook-up story is aim at denting the hard-won reputation and image of REDEEMER.
Clearly,the office of the SRC is separated from the local NUGS and the afore-said offices operate on separate lines and,therefore,it is mischievous and sheer wickedness for some students to alledged that Local NUGS president would go and demand any money from the SRC office for his personal gains.For Public records,this is evil and unscrupulous way to defame and discredit Redeemer as nothing of this nature happened and REDEEMER never encountered the secretary at the SRC office for any issues of this nature.
We admit that people would always want stories to tell about personalities like REDEEMER,but we must say that they only ended fabricating stories about him which is untrue and unfounded with a capital U.
We must not hesitate to add that people who would want to associate themselves with falsehood of this nature would face the full rigours of the law.
We wish to remind all well-meaning Students that Redeemer would not demand monies of the SRC for his personal gains since the money belongs to students and not a single individual or group of people.
Indeed,what is even more ridiculing is that REDEEMER slapped the woman and she is hospitalised.This is false because REDEEMER is a gentleman and will not indulged in physical assault.
