The Coordinator of the Tema Campus of the Presbyterian University College, Ghana(PUCG), Mr Moses Amegbe has said that the interference of political parties and politicians in tertiary schools elections poses a big threat to the country and the growth of students in the various campuses.
He said the backing of some political parties in elections especially the Students’ Representative Council(SRC) leave huge division in the running of the school programs, and cast slur on the students leadership.
According to him some students who feel a particular leader belongs to a certain party will never support and listen thereby leaving huge divisions, oppositions and rivalry until their tenure of office are over.
In this they end up learning nothing before handing over or leaving school.
The Coordinator said this in Tema when inducting the new SRC officers into office for the next academic year.
Mr Jonathan Tetteh Kartey, the President said their major priority was to help the student body and collaborate with authorities in the provision of more infrastructure, better library and better learning environment.
Mr Issah Asmai, Outgone SRC President also spoke about ensuring peaceful elections in November, but cautioned students to stay away from election violence.
