The bus at the centre of the misunderstanding

Students of Bolgatanga polytechnic poured unto the street on Monday to demonstrate over the mismanagement of their dues by the leadership of the Polytechnic’s Student’s Representative Council (SRC).

The leadership of the SRC is reported to have purchased a 12 seater Nissan Bus in January 2017 at the cost of GHc 70,000.00, which the students thought was not a prudent use of their SRC dues.


Students of the Polytechnic numbering close to 800 joined the demonstration to create public awareness of what they described as day-light robbery by the leadership of the SRC and also compel the Authorities of the Polytechnic to take steps to retrieve their monies from the leadership of the SRC and also punish anyone found to have a hand in the purchase of the Nissan Bus.

The Nissan Bus was meant to be used by the Students, unfortunately these students have rejected this bus because they find the amount (GHc70,000.00) spent for the bus as outrageous and a delibrate mismanagement of their SRC dues.

The misunderstanding has led to the impeachment of the SRC President, Francis Bugase, and yet the students are not satisfied and will only be, if their dues are retrieved from the SRC leadership and the SRC President and his collaborators punished.


The spokesman for the student body, Moses Asooh, said they will resort to the Court if their demands are responded to as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, the Rector of the polytechnic, Dr. Atinga Mba appealed to the students to be calm and allow the Committee to investigate into the matter, adding that management of the Polytechnic will do what is right for the Institution and will not shield anyone found guilty.

There was heavy Security presence on the Sumburungu campus of the Bolgatanga Polytechnic and likely to be there for long to prevent any possible clash between Students Body and people who support the SRC.
