UG students demand partial refund of academic and residential fees

Students of the University of Ghana, Legon, are demanding for a partial refund of academic and residential fees.

They have in effect, initiated an online petition, calling on all their colleagues to sign for same to be forwarded to the authorities of the university for redress.

An electronic copy of the petition, a copy of which has been sighted by www.politicoghana.com, and jointly signed by Kojo Danquah and Sampson Tagbor, Lead Petitioners, is urging all students to provide critical support to the petitioners to advance the agenda at stake by signing the petition.

“We are of the strong conviction that the agreement for academic tuition and residency the University had with students prior to admission and registration are hinged on the invaluable face-to-face lecture delivery by lecturers, social contact and academic interactions among students and direct access to facilities like the Science Labs, Computer Labs, WiFi System, Sporting fields, the well equipped Library System including that of departmental and Junior Common Rooms (JCRs) libraries among others of which students are no longer guaranteed access to under the current E-Learning arrangements for the rest of the semester”, the petition in part read.
