Students with disability at the University of Ghana are demanding disability friendly facilities from the school authorities, whom they claim have refused to ensure same.

The students, who have bemoaned the level of accessibility to almost all facilities including the library and ICT centre, blame the authorities for their plight.

Speaking to Joy News, President of University of Ghana Association of the Disabled David Kofigah said the university authorities have neglected their concerns.

“Persons with disability are being admitted into the university with no facilities for them; the least said about the facilities in the halls, the better” he emphasised.

According to him, each time the association planned on embarking on demonstration in protest of the inaccessible facilities, the authorities would dissuade them.

The disabled students also want government to pay their bursaries for brails and other materials they need for school work.
