Meanwhile, the National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) had its origin from the Union of Gold Coast Students in West Africa in the 1930’s

The Union’s goal by then, was to dismantle the British colonial rule and to achieve independence. After Ghana achieved independence in 1957, the union adopted its present name in 1962. In 1982 it began to represent an opposition with students demonstrating for the release of political detainees and the transfer to a civilian government.

The current objectives of NUGS are to discuss student problems, coordinate student activities and to formulate student opinion on matters of mutual concern.

The National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) became formal in 1965 under the name (National Union of Ghana Students) after the University of Ghana, the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and technology and the University of Cape Coast came to form a multi-level governance structure for the administration of students’ affairs at the national level.

The National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) was formed with the Vision of championing the interest of Ghanaian Students; among these were the institution of the National Service Scheme (NSS) and Ghana Education Trust Fund (GET Fund) which the Leadership of the Union then played a key role.
