Indeed, students of the University of Ghana will soon pay GHC 100 to purchase generators for residential halls.
President of the Students Representative Council (SRC), Joshua Dogbe says “it is a project that has gone through all the due processes.
“It is even worse when you have to prepare for an exam or during a lecture the lights just go off. This is really disturbing so the SRC decided to do something about it.
His comment comes at the back of the frequent recent power outages in the country which has adversely affected students all over the country.
According to the president, “We have met with the relevant authorities about it and even the students are in support of it so we are hoping that by next two weeks some serious work would take off.”
Breaking the terms of payment, he noted that GHc 50 will be paid per semester adding the project is part of their long term plan to solve the electricity problem they face as students on campus and believes it will go a long way to solve some challenges university students face.
