The management of the University of Ghana have met leaders of the Students Representative Council to discuss problems affecting students after threats from the students front to embark on demonstration.
The meeting follows threats from the students front to hit the streets if the university fails to address their grievances have been swept under the carpet for long.
President of the SRC Sylvester Amoako Quarshie told the campus radio that their concerns have been neglected by all stakeholders in the chain at the university.
“It is long overdue, the discussion started from June. We have had meetings with all the relevant stakeholders. I am not leading a weak front.”
“If we cannot get a response from management by Friday, we will go through due process and go for a peaceful demonstration. We will call our people, we will put them together and it [demonstration] will happen”, he told Radio Universe as sighted by successafrica.info news team.
He noted the students are upset about the 100 percent increment in fares for the shuttle and the limited number serving students.
Professor Ebenezer Oduro Owusu took to his official twitter handle to announce he had met the students to address their concerns.
“Earlier today, @UnivofGhana management met with @Ug_src to deliberate on welfare issues of Students in a meeting chaired by myself. I assured them that the welfare of students was always paramount as well as a conducive environment for studies,” he wrote.
The development follows as the Kwame University of Science of Technology is shutdown following a violent protest by students over what they describe as brutalities and disrespect from their authorities.
