The National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) has set up a five-member committee that will critically assess the draft Public Universities Bill recommended by the Ministry of Education.
The committee, which was set up on April, 11, 2019 is to seek the views, contributions, suggestions and concerns of students and their leaders from all over the country and to formally present them to the Ministry of Education.
The NUGS, which identified that academic development was tied to the improvement of students’ governance and development, underscored the need to pay much attention by the students’ mother union on the Bill.
The members of the committee include John Mark Bekui, a lawyer and a former SRC President of the University of Ghana, Courage Kwasi Nobi, a former General Secretary of the NUGS and Graduate Student of the University of Professional Studies, and Pius Nimako, a student studying law at the Central University College and currently the General Secretary of NUGS.
Others are Kobby Otchere Marfo, a former student of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology and currently the Press and Information Secretary of NUGS, and Knollis Delle, currently the speaker of parliament of the University for Development Studies.
However, the committee is expected to complete its work and report to the president of the Union for further submission to the Central Committee of the NUGS for necessary actions to be taken.
