Prince Asumadu and Wisdom Ndukwe stated in their policy document that they are going to work tirelessly to see the successful implementation of the SRC Hostel project.

This project, they stated, when completed, will see a significant number of students benefitting from it.

‘The Asumadu led administration in active collaboration with the General Assembly and the University management would work tirelessly towards the implementation of the SRC hostel project which has been halted for several years due to certain resolvable issues. We are convinced that upon the successful completion of this project, a significant number of students would benefit; be settled, have access to academic resources on campus, and enhance their social network which in turn sharpens their social skills.”

Also, the team promised to liaise with owners of the private hostels on campus i.e. Pent, Evandy, Bani, TF, to make University of Ghana students a priority when admitting residents into their facilities.

“Along the Pent stretch, there are a number of private hostels on University of Ghana land that houses students from other universities around. In view of the fact that the modular system would be ending and the demand for accommodation on campus would be intense, private hostels on the university of Ghana campus should give preference to students from the University of Ghana first before they admit students from other universities. This is intended to ensure UG students are a high priority in the allocation of these.”

The team, among many other policies, has promised to create an SRC Endowment fund that will support students who lose their parents/guardians and cannot fend for themselves.

This fund, they said, will also cover the needs of students in terms of feeding, accommodation, and other provisions that the SRC and University scholarships cannot cover in light of COVID-19.

“When the parent(s) and or guardian(s) of students pass on students may face some difficulty with respect to fending for themselves or paying for their fees. It is important that the SRC creates a more institutionalized avenue to collate benevolent contributions towards these activities.”
