The Students’ Representative Council (SRC) has reacted in a public statement to the arrest of a contractor working on the university’s sports complex.
Read the full statement below:
The Students Representative Council of University of Cape Coast has noted with great shock the irresponsible act of the National Security on our campus by arresting a contractor working on our sports complex project just at a tip of a mere rumour.
How can a whole National Security enter the premises of a well established tertiary institution without asking single individual in the University authority about what is happening on our land before proceeding to effect any arrest.
We are therefore by this notice giving the National Security 24hours to release the contractor to go back to site to continue his work which is already behind schedule.
1. Students of UCC are not prepared to add a pesewa to the project upon the daily change of prices of goods in the country maybe this what they should arrest.
2. Since this project is fully sponsored by students we can’t afford to here any change of venue due to such irresponsible acts delaying our work.
3. We can not tolerate their gross disrespect towards our authorities, especially our vice chancellor.
