According to him, never again are KNUST students going to have an SRC that is distanced from the students body.
I can assure students that there is going to be a great deal of flow of information, there is going to be a great deal of communication so whatever happens in the SRC, they’re going to know and we’ll get close to the students extremely and get to know what happens in the student body,” He stated.
“Never again are we gong to have an SRC that distances itself from the student body and only comes closer to the students only during elections. In the next 8 months, we’re going to have an SRC that is bounded by duty,” according to Adu Baah Charles.
