Earlier today, Frank Toko a CANARSA Presidential aspirant together with his running mate Yaw Afriyie and other delegates( RENARSA President, Former CANARSA Electoral Commissioner, and others) paid a courtesy call on the Registrar of the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources to have a discussion with him on issues pertaining to the general welfare of Students and to present to him a petition on the lack of adequate number of study chairs at the New Classroom Block which is popular referred to as the NCB.
The College Registrar, Mr Owusu-Ansah Debrah in the discussion with the delegation explained why the situation has been so as the issues of lack of more study chairs have been a topic of discussion at college board meetings for quite sometime now and there is still an ongoing discussion as to how to procure the chairs. He made mention of the fact that the College has resources to procure quite a very substantial number of additional furnitures to solve the issue entirely and so entreated all the Student’s Associations in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources to set aside some funds for such projects to support the College in their bid to solve this problem to enable a conducive academic environment for students.
The Registrar further stated that according to information relayed to his office by the Pro-Vice Chancellor, study chairs can not be procured for now due to the spread of the Corona virus as the chairs are procured from China and hence urged all students to remain patient and calm more study chairs will be added to the existing ones at the NCB soon.
The delegation led by Frank Toko and his running mate further took the chance to make a request on behalf of students in the College of Agriculture who attend lectures at Boadi ( Faculty of Allied Health Sciences) to be aided by the provision of buses to transport them to lectures at the said location of which the Registrar thanked the delegation for bringing such an issue to his notice and promised to work on that as soon possible to ensure students comfortability.
The Registrar finally thanked Master Frank Toko for leading such an initiative as it is not everyone that sees a problem unsolved that takes a step towards finding a solution to it and further more lauded Frank Toko on his charisma and good communication skills and promised to work on all problems that was brought for discussion as soon as possible and assured the students that their office is always available to work and help the students as he brought the meeting to an end.
