National Organiser of the New Patriotic Party, Samuel Awuku says the National Union of Ghana Students needs “vibrant, dynamic and courageous persons” who will champion the course of students.
In a goodwill message to delegates attending the annual NUGS congress slated for September 18-21, 2014 at Akrokere in the Ashanti Region, Mr. Awuku noted that the state of the Ghanaian student in recent times has not been the very best.
“We have in the past years witnessed withdrawals of allowances which hitherto cushioned students at the teacher and nursing training institutions. Worse of all has been the seeming lackadaisical attitude of government towards our schools of special need and above all on capitation at the basic and senior high schools.
“It is our hope that in electing leaders delegates would take into account all these concerns by voting for vibrant, dynamic and courageous persons who will be at the forefront to get these outstanding issues resolved,” the NPP Youth Organiser said.
Sammy Awuku however, commended current leadership of the union for “holding the fort for the students of Ghana in the past year amidst all the challenges and difficulties”.
He therefore appealed to the delegates to elect persons who will ensure that the right things are done egarding the education sector.
