KNUST SRC Working to Restore JCRCs, Dismisses Demonstration Rumor

The 15th Parliamentary Council of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) Students Representative Council (SRC) has issued a statement  denying rumors of a planned demonstration due to the perceived unfulfilled promise to restore Junior Common Room Councils (JCRC’s) to their original state. The statement, issued by the  Hall caucus head Hon. Ephraim Fosu Djan, addressed concerns circulating among students regarding the status of the JCRC’s.

It emphasized that the council is actively working to restore the JCRCs to their previous level of operation. “We understand the frustration and concerns raised by students regarding the JCRCs,” said the statement.

“We want to assure the student body that we are committed to fulfilling our promise of restoring the JCRC’s to their original state. We are currently working behind the scenes to ensure this happens and urge all students to remain calm and patient.”

The SRC also appealed to students to focus on their academic pursuit which is the major reason for enrollment on campus while they work tirelessly with various stakeholders to restore the JCRCs. “We urge all  students and stakeholders  to disregard all false rumors and remain calm, focusing on  their academic pursuit ” the statement concluded.

The JCRC’s play a vital role in student life at KNUST, providing a platform for student representation, social activities, and community building. Their restoration is considered a key priority for the current SRC administration.

The parliamentary council’s statement comes amidst growing student anxiety about the status of the JCRC’s, with some rumors suggesting a potential demonstration was being planned. The council’s clarification aims to alleviate these concerns and foster a collaborative spirit between the SRC and the student body.
