The Management of the University of Cape Coast (UCC) has resheduled the hall week celebration of Casely Harford and Oguaa Hall to 29th March and 5th April respectively.
According to a communique issued on Tuesday, March 21, by the Office of the Vice-Chancellor of the university, the rescheduling of the hall week celebrations is to help management restore calm to the university after last Friday’s vandalism caused by some students of the UCC, Atlantic Hall (Mariners), UG, Commonwealth Hall (Vandals) and KNUST, Unity Hall (Conti).
“The revised dates are to help Management and the police put in place adequate measures restore calm to the University campus before the celebrations.”
The hall week celebration of Oguaa and Casely Haford Hall was initially scheduled to come off on 22nd March and 29th March respectively.
However, the University Management believes that the current emotional and psychological state of students on campus after last Friday’s incident is not suitable for celebration of hall weeks thus the rescheduling of the dates.
Management again assures the university community of a heavy security presence on campus to help normalise the situation.
Students are thus advised to go by their normal day to day activities without any fear.
Students of Oguaa Hall have also been assured by management that the University will take care of injured persons and restore destroyed properties of the hall.
“The Vice-Chancellor wishes to assure students of Oguaa Hall that the University will take care of the injured and restore the damaged properties to their original state within the shortest possible time.”
The University management has also advised students to desist from acts of provocation against their colleagues and the general public.
