Bolga Poly Students Up In Arms Against SRC Over ‘Exorbitant’ 12-Seater Van

Students of Bolgatanga Polytechnic, earlier today, staged a demonstration against executives of the Students Representative Council (SRC) over allegations of mismanagement of student funds.

According to the irate students, the buying of a 12-seater van at GHS 66,000 is way beyond normal. The students demand a refund or the entire executive resign en mass.

The students, who last Friday impeached their SRC President, Francis Bugase, have threatened to seek court action if their grievances are not met as at the close of day on Tuesday.

The SRC explained that it purchased the Nissan caravan in January 2017 for the use of student body. A total of GHS 70,000 was involved in getting the van to the Sumbrungu campus from Accra, reports.

Meanwhile, Rector of Bolgatanga Polytechnic Dr. Atinga Mba appealed to the students to be calm because a committee has been set up to investigate the matter as management resolves to defend the image of the school.

There was heavy security on campus to avert any unseen circumstances. The demonstration was peaceful overall.
