It was an emotional service yesterday at the forecourt of the University of Ghana SRC Union building as friends and sympathizers of the late Pamela Suglo and Lillian Ampofowaah Asiedu came together in memory of the two former university of Ghana students.
As tributes, in memory of the two, were read, mourners could not hold back their tears.
In a solidarity message to Lillian, President of the Students Representative Council, Sylvester Amoako shared how Lilian called on him for suggestion for a streetism project she planned on embarking on 3 hours before they received reports announcing her death.
“Three hours before her death, I had a chat with her about an upcoming streetism project and we agreed to talk about it when she returns.. I was in shock to see her lifeless body at the University of Cape Coast morgue” he shared.
A tribute from the University of Ghana Catholic Church described Pamela as a selfless leader who made it a personal concern to see PAX Romana grow from strength to strength.
Last night’s vigil and donation service was organized by the SRC to remember Pamela Suglo and Lillian Ampofowaa Agyei, who both died under separate conditions earlier this month.
Whilst many have congratulated the SRC for organizing the solemn event in memory of the two, others opine that the event was needless.
According to them, the SRC was forcibly “pushing emotions to them”.
The students argue that the Accra City and the UG Catholic Church could have respectively been made to mourn their dead.
Pamela Suglo until her death, was a level 400 consumer science student and the local President of the University of Ghana Catholic Church.
She reportedly passed on after suffering a strange bacteria infection in her ear which gradually affected her brain.
Lilian, on the hand, was among the two Miss USAG contestants who drowned at the Oasis Beach near the Cape-Coast Castle in the Central region during the annual conference of the University Students Association of Ghana (USAG).
Lilian was at the Accra City Campus of the University of Ghana.
