In a related development, the Ghana Institute of Journalism’s Students’ Representative Council (GIJSRC) withdrew from NUGs Congress, which took place on Monday, May 3, 2021, at the Madina Institute of Science and Technology.
They stated among other things in a letter sighted by this portal saying:
“General Assembly has realized that GIJ-SRC has not fully benefited from NUGS because there is no policy document outlining, guiding, and detailing the vision and mission of the External Affairs Commission (Local NUGS) of the GIJ-SRC.
“The activities of the External Affairs Commission, over the years, has been limited to the provision of birth certificates and passport while voting at NUGS congresses without a clear-cut strategy on how GIJ-SRC will benefit from this. The dissatisfaction of the General Assembly regarding the operations of Local NUGS over the past few years is what has led to this” part of the statement read.
