Benjamin Essuman, GIMPA SRC president
Henry Tuffour, Vice president of the students representative Council (SRC) of the Ghana Institute of Management And public Administration (GIMPA) has vehemently denied culpability in the alleged loss of Gh¢45,000 in the account of the SRC.
Mr Tuffuor alleged that he was not involved in the signing and cashing of the whopping amount of money as reported in the media.
Reacting to media reports about the GIMPA SRC scandal, Mr. Tuffuor admitted that he was part of the committee that took the decision to procure souvenirs for students but claimed he did not take part in the signing and withdrawal of the money.
‘Our constitution stipulates that either the SRC President or his vice can be a signatory to a cheque and not both at the same time.
The president, Benjamin Asuman and the financial chairperson, Delali Anthony, in this regard, signed and cashed it minus me,’ he claimed.
He was hopeful the SRC would soon take steps to deal with the alleged perpetrators.
It would be recalled that on April 24, the media carried a story that some students of GIMPA had allegedly descended on the SRC for failing to account for an amount of GH¢45,000.
The complainants- Benjamin Don Winas, Rosalyn Enyo Yevoo, Edward Oppong and Cyprine Okonye, alleged that the SRC President, Mr Esuman, his Vice Henry Tuffour and Delali Anthony, the financial secretary of the council, took the said amount from the Council’s account to produce diaries, pens and key holders for the students since January, this year but failed to do so.
The complainants claimed the leaders told the student body that the company they awarded the contract to produce the said items had bolted with the money.
The students claimed efforts to make the student leader account for this money proved futile and alleged that this was not the first time the leaders had used the ploy to bembezzle their money.
The Tesano Divisional Commander, Chief Superintendent Aboagye Nyarko said the police, upon receiving the complaint, invited the suspects for questioning and during interrogation detected that the leaders had also filed a case of fraud against a company called Dor Consult in consultation with the school’s management.
He said as a result the CID Headquarters and Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) were conducting further investigations.
