The Federal Students Representative Council (SRC) President of the University of Health and Allied Sciences, Felix Kodjo Apaloo has been accused of corruption by the school’s Federal Treasurer, Abena Boahemaa Adusei.
This has been revealed in a letter by the Treasurer of the Ho-based school sent to the Dean of Students on May 28, 2021, and copied to Students Affairs, SRC Parliament, as well as SRC Executives.
In the letter, Abena Boahemaa Adusei reveals that the activities of malfeasance started in 2020 when she uncovered that fees of Sandwich students that resided in the SRC hostel in November and December were not paid into the hostel account.
She further reveals that in November 2020, an amount of GH₵ 7150.00 was accrued through the sale of SRC cloth but the president instructed her to deposit only GH₵ 5000.00 into the school account.
President Felix Kodjo Apaloo, later on, asked the Federer Treasurer to send him the balance although he did not cite specific reasons, the letter noted.
After refusing to send him the money, Abena Boahemaa Adusei explains that the Federal SRC President spread rumours accusing her of misusing the school's money.
She has also accused the president of using monies from the sale of SRC cloth and lab coats to order for more lab coats, t-shirts, stickers, and brooche selling the items at a high price.
“The president instructed for the lab coats to be sold for GH₵ 60. I was however instructed to deposit GH₵ 50 per lab coat into the school account with reason being that the lab coats inherited from the previous administration was accounted as GH₵ 50 per one so we should do same until we pay off what was inherited.
“I later learnt the lab coats were sold to him GH₵ 45 per one. I enquired about what will happen to the interest on its sale and the president boldly told me that I’m not trustworthy so he does not like opening up about such deals to me,” part of Abena Boahemaa Adusei’s letter to the University of Health and Allied Sciences Dean of Students read.
