The Students’ Representative Council of the Ghana School of Law has interdicted its president, Wonder Victor Kutor over alleged financial impropriety.
The SRC President of the school had, among other things, been accused of buying a car for the SRC from his company, and another one for his personal use under questionable circumstances.
Mr. Wonder Victor Kutor is also said to be running an SRC-owned Mobile Money business with his company name and diverting proceeds from the business for his personal use.
The Executive Council of the SRC queried the president, but said they are not convinced with his answers. They therefore constituted a committee to investigate the matter.
The embattled SRC president has since denied the allegations.
He admitted that the SRC purchased a used Toyota Corolla at 62,000 from a company he used to be the sole proprietor of.
But said he had declared his affiliation to the company and also indicated that while he had appointed the people on the procurement team, “we expect fairness.”
“I am not a member of the SRC procurement committee. I do not sit on the committee,” he also noted.
On the claims that he was running an SRC-owned Mobile Money business with his company name and diverting proceeds from the business for his own personal use, Mr. Kutor said all he did was donate his merchant SIM to the endeavour
The Executive Committee of the SRC probing the allegations in a statement said the interdiction is based on a prima facie case it has established against Wonder Victor Kutor.
“Pursuant to the concurrent resolutions of the Executive Council of the SRC dated 17th April 2022 and of the Congress dated 15th April 2022 interdicting the SRC President, Mr. Wonder Victor Kutor, pending investigation by an independent ad hoc Committees set up, this is to formally state for the attention and action of the underlisted that Mr. Wonder Kutor is hereby interdicted in accordance with Article 34(d) and (e) of the SRC constitution.”
“The interdiction is grounded on, among others a prima facie case established upon the probing of Mr. Wonder Kutor before the Executive Council on 7th April 2022, and subsequent admissions in a radio interview on Citi FM on 12th April 2022, which acts bring the SRC into disrepute.”
The Executive Council further indicated that it has, by a resolution under Article 20(4) of the SRC Constitution, appointed Mr. Yoofi Impraim, Vice President of the Greenhill campus, as interim President until the findings of the Investigation Committee are complete.
“Mr. Kutor, is, therefore, in the interim not to be recognized or dealt with as SRC President. The SRC Executive Council shall in writing subsequently communicate the end of the interdiction if necessitated by the findings of the Committee,” it added.
