Mrs. Theodosia Jackson, Principal of the Jackson College of Education, said it was important for them to recognize that such money was not for anybody’s personal comfort.

They should ensure that they properly accounted for how students’ dues were utilized, she added.

She was speaking at the inauguration of the newly elected Students Representative Council (SRC) of the College in a ceremony in Kumasi.

The Council, which would serve for a term of one year, has Ms. Abigail Anyama Bossman as its’ President.

The other officers are Mr. Salisu Issah, Secretary, Ms. Felicia Kufe Simpi, Coordinating Secretary, Mr. Isaac Yeboah, Financial Secretary, and Ms. Esther Agu Atsupey, Women’s Commissioner.

Mrs. Jackson told them not to represent themselves but the entire student body’s interest.

She said that was the way forward to get their colleagues behind – sustain their trust.

She denounced instances in the past where there had been tension and agitation on the students front all because of suspected shady deals by the leaders and said that should be avoided.

She encouraged the SRC to collaborate with the authorities of the College for its smooth running to raise the quality of teaching and learning.

Ms. Bossman on behalf of the other elected officers pledged not to disappoint.
