Gilbert Resigns as HO POLY GNUPS Rep

The Ghana National Union of Polytechnic Students local Representative in Ho Gilbert Nukomeko has tendered his resignation following what he said was the failure of leadership of the Students’ Representative Council to defend the constitution of GNUPS and fight for the rights of students on campus.

His resignation followed an earlier decision by the school’s management to turn down school’s
right to host this year’s national seat of GNUPS on their campus after an impasse   and GNUPS executives over the eligibility of one of the candidates in the race.

In a letter dated on the 20th May and submitted to the Judicial Committee of the SRC, the GNUPS Rep said SRC acted in bad faith by failing to insist on the right of the students when it was patently infringed on.

“I find my continuous stay in office meaningless if my involvement cannot translate  restoring an academic atmosphere which is receptive of students’ grievances and responsive to the plight  students; with apology I would not want to continue throwing my lot with a failing team’’ it stated.

He however dissociated himself from actions of the SRC to further ‘betray’ the trust of students by “being in bed with the oppressors”.
