Students of the Commonwealth Hall of the University of Ghana have indicated they may hit the streets to press authorities to grant them accommodation.
According to them, some continuing students who are entitled to on-campus accommodation in accordance with the school’s in-out-out-in policy, have been without rooms, three weeks after school re-opened.
They accuse authorities of a ploy to break their front. President of the hall Joshua Larry tells Joy News, students may be forced to resort to demonstrations.
“We believe that most people do not have the fair understanding of the situation. So we want to bring to the public domain what exactly the challenge is to us as far us accommodation is concerned and how it is affecting the academic work.”
He said first year students are sleeping in deplorable places, adding, “Clearly it makes no sense to have empty beds in the hall and they tell you never to sleep on them.”
He said the students will use all legitimate means, including demonstrations to make sure the decision by the authorities to convert the hall does not materiaalise.
