The University of Energy and Natural Resources, Sunyani has had an admission of about 300 graduate students and had an orientation on the 23rd January, 2021
During the orientation, the freshmen were informed of all rules and regulations, Channel of communication and roles of the various authorities which included the GRASAG President.
The UENR GRASAG president, Mr Eric Yaw Amponsah whilst addressing the freshmen thanked the Government for existing scholarship schemes and for expanding the intake of the recently graduated SHS students by extending scholarship application limit. He expressed disappointment in the majority caucus of parliament for standing against the stimulus package as proposed in Parliament to cushion students and parents, hence called on them to reconsider their bad fate towards the motion on the absorption or suspension of fees for this 2020/ 2021 academic year.
Mr Amponsah called on government to make the absorption of fees for the 2020 /2021 academic year a reality in the course of this pandemic as scholarships received are mostly based on merit. Moreover most lectures would be virtual which would be an extra cost to be borne by students and absorbing at least some part of the fees will be well appreciated.
He urged the freshmen to follow all rules and regulations as spelt out to them, and follow the right line of communication. He assured them UENR GRASAG is also available to attend to all students anytime. In attendance to the orientation were Deans of all schools, Dean of Graduate school , Dean of students and was under the able chairmanship of the acting Pro. VC . Prof. Felix Adekoya Adebayor .
