ATU src inducts 2022/2023 executives
Outgoing Students Representative Council (SRC) executives of Accra Technical University (ATU) passed the torch at a ceremony held on Wednesday, November 30, 2022, at the University Auditorium.
The official ceremony took place after the final General Assembly (GA) meeting of the 2022/2023 SRC administration, led by its GA Speaker, Right Honourable Samara Nartey. ATU Dean of Student Affairs, Mr. Martin Owusu Amoamah, initiated the dissolution of the then-incumbent SRC General Assembly.
The handing-over ceremony started with a speech by now-former President Terry Ofori Baffour. He first apologised for any toes he may have stepped on during his tenure of office. He then urged students to contribute more to the SRC’s decision-making and activities. The Dean of Student Affairs stepped to the podium and encouraged the outgoing student leaders to keep up the advocacy and activism they displayed during their time on campus.
The formalities continued with the SRC Chief Justice Samuel Baah’s swearing-in of new executives by handing over gestures between the old executives and new executives. A prayer session was then held to invoke divine blessing and guidance upon the new administration. The new SRC president, Damesi Etse Kofi, thanked the previous SRC administration for a smooth transition. He also profusely appreciated the University’s management for all the guidance and cooperation.
The Pro-Vice-Chancellor of ATU, Professor Amevi Acakpovi, in the final speech of the ceremony, emphasised ATU’s value of student experience. He cited the three-month leadership programme that the school held for the new executives as a testament to management’s efforts to support the Student Representative Council. He concluded by inspiring students to get involved in the SRC’s activities.
The newly inducted executives will serve a term of one academic year.
In attendance were the Vice Dean of Students Affairs and the Dean of Engineering, among other officials of the University.
