Students upset about proposed hikes in utility fees
Proposed fees for water and electricity for non-resident students have been pegged at GHC922 and GHC2,326 for residents.
This is part of efforts by the university to clear debts owed utility companies.
Treasurer of the University of Ghana Students’ Representation Council (SRC), Prince Ampofo Amoah, has described the proposed utility bills as harsh.
“This is very harsh because Humanities undergraduate students are paying less as tuition fees,” he told Joy News Channel on Multi TV.
“As a representative of the students on the Council [of students, lecturers, and university board], I thought I should sensitise students on what is likely to pop up,” he added.
Meanwhile, the Ghana Education Service (GES) and Ministry of Education are yet to approve the proposed fees.
