The Students’ Representative Council of University of Cape Coast (UCC-SRC) has assured students of the university that no student would be punished by the university for ignoring the school’s directive to register for online academic work.
According to the SRC, if students fail to heed to the advice by the SRC directing all students to halt the online academic activities, it will make it difficult for students concerns to be addressed.
A statement signed by the SRC President, Mr Zaki Abdul-Hamid and issued by the SRC Public Relations Officer, Mr Fidel Osei Agyemang, advises all students of the university to rally behand the SRC to ensure that management of the university takes into consideration the concerns of students regarding the e-learning.
The statement reads, “We would like to also boldly inform all students without fear that no student would be punished, be it being failed, rusticated or withdrawn from the university should they heed to the SRC”.
However, the various Junior Common Room Committees (JCRCs) and other students’ associations of the university have issued notices informing all affiliates of each hall and their members respectively to heed to the SRC’s directive to put a stop to all processes towards the e-learning.
Below is the full statement;
