“We made so many engagements in terms of writing letters; in terms of engaging the local and national office, engaging USAG and all….the issue wasn’t just on the University of Ghana campus it was country-wide.
We did all those advocacies and the best we could get from them was government didn’t have funds to give us, so the best we could do was to wait on government, not to sideline the fact that those debates caused a lot of problem for students, unfortunately at the latter part of the semester, some students had to defer because they couldn’t pay their fees,” Sylvester Amoako said concerning the students loan.
He further added that his administration did a lot in terms of ensuring that the University community was safe for learning and teaching.

“The men were virtually inadequate, during the course of the semester. The HR department in conjunction with the security services on the university recruited some individuals to beef up security on campus. We had opportunities from the MP for the constituency, Honourable Lydia Al-Hassan to provide us with some logistics for visibility and mobility on campus,” he said
He gave his administration a 7 out of 10 score for his performance.
