KNUST Law School Elects ‘Part-Time’ Students As President and Vice for the First Time

KNUST Law School Elects ‘Part-Time’ Students As President and Vice for the First Time.

Broadcast Journalist, Master Evans Osei-Bonsu, has been elected as the President of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology’s (KNUST) Law Students’ Union (LSU).

Mr. Osei-Bonsu, a practicing journalist with over 12 years experience emerged as the first ever ‘part-time’ student to win the LSU elections with a running-mate who was not only a female, but also a ‘part-time’ student.

He garnered 289 votes representing 47.69% out of the total valid votes cast in the keenly contested elections.

His two closest contenders, Mr. Eleazer Poku Addae Owusu and Daryl N.A Vanderpuye, obtained 161 votes representing 26.56% and 146 votes representing 24.09% respectively, out of the total 606 valid votes cast.

The KNUST Law School has been divided into two streams of students; the ‘regular students’ who directly are recruits from Senior High Schools, and ‘evening students’ christened as ‘part-time’ students, comprising of persons with advanced learning certificates like 1st degree, masters degree or PhD holders.

In the almost 20 years of the KNUST’s Law School history, the student leadership front has been mostly led by ‘regular’ students with an occasional blend of a regular student as the main president and a part-time student as running mate or vice-versa.
