GSL SRC bus scandal: Mgt to probe allegations of financial impropriety

The Management of the Ghana School of Law (GSL) has said it is taking immediate action to investigate allegations of financial misappropriation of funds of the Student Representative Council (SRC) to enable it take the necessary action where required.

This comes on the back of a directive from the Executive Council of the SRC of the GSL, asking its President, Wonder Victor Kutor, to step down temporarily to enable it investigate the procurement of a vehicle purchased for the SRC.

Management of the GSL, in a statement issued on Tuesday, 12 April 2022, noted that it “takes a serious view” of such matters.

A letter addressed to the President, signed by the secretary to the SRC, Safo Kwame Oheneba, on Monday, 11 April 2022, said: “As a result, the Executive Council would kindly request you step down temporarily as SRC president till the investigation comes to a conclusion.”

Responding to the letter Mr Kutor said he would not step down.

The President of the SRC noted that “there is no constitutional basis as far as the SRC’s constitution is concerned that suggests that where an allegation is levelled against an Executive member, that Executive has to step down.”

The SRC President continued that: “I am presently out of the jurisdiction on official duties, but respectfully, it is not to be used as a basis or tool to oust me from office.”

Mr Kutor also indicated that: “I sincerely find this procedure to be immeasurably strange to our law as SRC.”

He added: “I will continue to discharge my duties faithfully and diligently as the law permits.”
