Management of the University of Ghana may have to brace themselves open up on the University’s deal with the Road Safety and Transport Consultancy (RSTC) as President of the Students Representative Council, Sylvester Amoako has charged members of the diaspora halls to get ready to hit the street should management keep their silence.
After releasing a statement threatening to lead a demonstration “if management does not end RSTC’s reign of terror by allowing our buses back unto the road,” Sylvester Amoako visited the four diaspora halls and addressed the respective hall members.
Addressing students in the Elizabeth Frances Sey Hall, the SRC President stated that the school authorities were taking students for granted hence the need for them to take swift and drastic actions.
He explained that the introduction of the 3 new buses on campus was on their own volition as the process of engaging the office of the Dean and that of the Registrar was taking long.
Mr. Amoako also revealed that PDMSD had stated that there have been procedural breaches in engaging the transport service, hence, the “sudden disappearance of the three buses acquired by the SRC to curb the shuttle crisis in the Diaspora.”
He however noted that the SRC was in talks with school authorities to bring the buses back on street.
He also announced a one-week ultimatum for school authorities to respond on the issues.
“We are giving the school a maximum of one week and if we don’t get any responses from school authorities, we must get onto the street with the #RSTCMUSTGO” Sylvester Amoako stressed.
Currently, a 7-member committee has been set up by the General Assembly first demand of the Management of the University, documentation of the “supposed” MoU signed with the Road Safety and Transport Consultancy (RSTC) and to also define clearly a road map to alleviate the worsening issues of shuttling on campus.
The committee is expected to report to the General Assembly after five (5) working days which elapses on Wednesday 24th October 2018.
