UG GRASAG President Faces Impeachment over alleged financial embezzlement
President of the University of Ghana, Legon Chapter of the Graduate University Student Association of Ghana (GRASAG), Ms. Christiana Adu, has been hauled before the Association’s Judiciary Committee for impeachment over alleged embezzlement of funds.
The President, Ms. Adu is said to have connived with the Treasure of the association, Theophilus Joojo Abedu Quashie, to allegedly withdrew funds without the laid down regulations and procedures as approved by the student body.
A petition by one of the students, Clement Lawaba Anafu, has accused the two executives of the Association of financial mismanagement.
The petitioner claimed the two executives have unilaterally cash-out funds from the Association’s account without any approval from Senate.
He, therefore, requests the judicial committee to commence an investigation and impeachment proceeding against the two executives for breach of the laws of the association.
Below is the full Petition
GRADUATE STUDENT ASSOCIATION OF GHANA
UNIVERSITY OF GHANA
13TH SEPTEMBER, 2022
REQUEST TO COMMENCE INVESTIGATION AND IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS AGAINST THE PRESIDENT AND TREASURER OF GRASAG-LEGON
It has been brought to the attention of all members of GRASAG especially in such critical times when there is pending litigation on the current electoral process that President Christiana Adu and Treasurer Theophilus Joojo Abedu Quashie allegedly withdrew funds from the accounts of GRASAG for architectural drawings and other items without the prior notice and approval by the Senate.
This allegation has been brought to notice by the very Vice President of the association who is a member of the executive council.
We find this very disturbing, criminal, and a disgrace to our association.
We would like your committee to investigate thoroughly the matter without any degree of bias. With the power vested in us, as members of GRASAG we would like to invoke the impeachment proceeding stipulated in Chapter 7, article 22 of the 2011 GRASAG constitution.
We would also involve other organizations in this investigation, like the School’s Accounts Office and the Economic and Organized Crime Office for further investigations if we find your outfit not living up to your constitutional mandate.
Corruption the greatest single bane of our society today is seen to affect our organization. We cannot sit and allow anyone who is entrusted with our funds to take us for granted.
We call on your outfit to take action so to get to the bottom of this issue. Posterity would judge your actions.
