A three Member Committee has been set up by the university’s council board to oversee a speedy resolution of the legal battle that was pending at the Cape Coast High Court, choicism.com has learned.
News went viral on social media that the court case was withdrawn but checks by choicism.com confirmed that the matter was indeed withdrawn from court on the advice of the university’s council board.
Reacting to this claim, Jerald Tambah, one of the plaintiffs at the centre of the case indicated that the university’s council board appealed to the plaintiffs to withdraw the matter from court whilst a three member committee was set up to adjudicate on the matter for amicable solution.
He recounted claims that the plaintiffs feared they would lose the matter as being purported by some of their critics, but maintained that they were committed for a common ground that would inure to the peaceful resolution of matter and hence, the decision to respect the call of the university’s council.
Tamba was hopeful the legal tussle would soon be over so the University of Cape Coast could have a peaceful student front.
Speaking on this same matter on ATL FM’s weekly programme “a week on campus”, the Dean of students, Prof. Kwaoh Adjah confirmed the matter, but quickly added that even though the matter was now pending before a committee set up the university’s council board, the SRC elections could not be organized until the matter was fully resolved by the committee.
It would be recalled that a case was filed at the Cape Coast High Court challenging the authenticity of the working constitution of the SRC of the University of Cape Coast.
The case has delayed the organization of this year’s SRC elections which has also had a ripple effect on JCRC elections and GRASSAG elections.
