The Crawford University Staff Multi-Purpose Cooperative Society Limited, better known as Crawford Cooperative Society held its congress preparatory to the General Election on Monday, the 30th of January, 2017. Attended by a cross-section of members, the congress was to put them on notice for the election as well as invite interested candidates to vie for positions. The election date is yet unannounced, but it would come up before Annual General meeting which is scheduled for March. The chairman also implores active participation of the non-academic staff at every congress, in order to ensure fair play and to protect their interest in policy-making decisions. The members, however proposed to have a more spacious and statutory office where new executives of the new regime would occupy so as to ensure their constant availability in discharging their duties to the Society.
