Speaker of Parliament refers UG’s new residential policy to Education Committee

Joseph Osei-Owusu, the First Deputy Speaker of Parliament, has asked the Education Committee of the house to look into any violations of a court order on the University of Ghana‘s new residence policy.

This comes after Dr., the Deputy Ranking Member of the Education Committee, made a statement on the floor of the legislature.

Clement Apaak criticized the university’s new residence policy and demanded the reinstatement of the impacted students.

First Deputy Speaker Joseph Osei-Owusu ruled that the committee should contact university administration to find out why they disobeyed the directive.

I will bring this up with the Committee on Education so they can talk to the University and let us know why they haven’t carried out the court’s order.

Due to a residential policy that sent continuing students of Commonwealth and Mensah Sarbah halls to other halls as a result of several fights recorded between the respective halls in the past, some students of Ghana’s top institution were left stranded at the start of the academic year.

Early in January 2023, an Accra High court issued an injunction prohibiting the policy’s execution, however the university disobeyed the order notwithstanding its denial that it had disobeyed the court.
