UCC SRC disagrees with management’s decision to suspend hall week celebrations

University of Cape Coast University of Cape Coast

Student representatives at the University of Cape Coast (UCC) have registered their dissatisfaction with the school management’s decision to temporarily suspend all hall and SRC week celebrations.

The decision to suspend all hall and SRC week celebrations follows the recent acts of vandalism which occurred on campus early Saturday, February 22, 2020.

The said violent occurrence featured the Ogua and the Atlantic (ATL) halls and led to several damages to school properties with some students sustaining injuries.

The University Management, outraged by the incidence, strongly condemned the acts and assured the public that investigations will be duly conducted and the perpetrators will be brought to book.

The Student Representative Council (SRC) however, in a statement dated Friday, February 28, 2020, emphatically stated that they completely disagree with the school management’s decision to temporarily put all the said celebrations on hold.

The statement also indicated that the student council will further discuss the matter with school management to push for a reversal of the decision so that the temporary suspension will be lifted.
