The President of the Students Representative Council of the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ SRC), Emmanuel Kumah, has been duly sworn in at the school’s Governing Council’s second meeting that came off on Tuesday, July 17, 2018.
The former Electoral Commission (EC) boss of the school, took an oath of membership administered by the Chairman of the Council, Professor Kwasi Ansu-Kyeremeh, in front of a distinguished Board of Directors and members.
The exercise officially confers on the president the constitutional representative and administrative roles of the Secretariat at Council and Management levels, having now been officially confirmed a member.
In recitation, President Kumah pledged his allegiance and compliance to the Council and more importantly to the student welfare.
He signed some official membership documents after the swearing in and was congratulated by other distinguished members of the Council.
Kumah secured a record-setting victory of over 1,000 votes in the 2018|2019 SRC Elections and has since began to roll-out some major campaign promises like the One Student One Laptop (1S1L); a partnership with AIRTEL-TIGO to address the WIFI challenges as well as a partnership with management to put up the first-ever dispensary in the school.
The Governing Council of the Ghana Institute of Journalism, just like in all tertiary institutions, is the topmost decision and law-making body that governs educational institutions.
