Tarkwa MP Inaugurates Wassa Fiase Students’ Union
The objective of the union is to bring all tertiary students from the Wassa Fiase land under one umbrella and link them to opportunities beneficial to their academic and future progress, such as internship, national service and jobs opportunities.
Leadership of the union, who were inducted on Saturday, June 3, 2023 at a ceremony in Tarkwa, were tasked to champion developmental programs in the educational sector for the area.
They were also tasked to provide assistance to students who are facing financial difficulties in terms of academic and non-academic works, among others, within the Tarkwa-Nsuaem enclave and across the country.
At the moment, the Wassa Fiase Students Union has chapters in six universities nationwide, namely University of Ghana (Legon), University of Mines and Technology (UMAT), Takoradi Technical University (TTU), University of Energy and Natural Resources (UNER), University of Cape Coast (UCC) and Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
Mr. Duker, who doubles as the Deputy Minister of Lands and Natural Resources in-charge of Mines and is an indigene of the Wassa, admonished mining companies operating in the area, traditional authorities, and academia, as well as businessmen from the area, to support activities of the union.
He willingly accepted to act as the national patron for the union and promised to assist them in all their doings.
