The University of Ghana has been enveloped in filth following Saturday’s Greater Accra Regional delegates congress held by the National Democratic Congress.
The congress, which was to elect a new executive body for the regional office of party, drew thousands of delegates from the 34 constituencies in the Greater Accra Region.
Prior to the elections, walls and streets leading to the congress grounds were heavily decorated with posters of candidates contesting for various portfolios.
Observing the state of the athletic oval, the venue for congress on Monday morning, one can not help but agree with Sir Walter Raleigh when he said “tell beauty how she blasteth”.
Walking along the streets leading to the congress grounds, one can be greeted with unbearable filth.
The compound has virtually taken over by a heap of plastic waste, bottles and other waste materials and it appears that no immediate efforts are being made to clear the refuse created by delegates and party faithfuls.
However, in an interview with the Dean of Students Affairs, Professor Godfred Alufar Bokpin, he stressed that the university will reprimand the party for filth they have created.
According to Prof. Bokpin, they may consider banning the party from holding future events at the university.
